Playing on Wednesday or Thursday without a partner?

If so please be sure to arrive at the club at least ten minutes before play begins, that is before 6.50 pm so that play is not delayed. It will not be possible to accommodate latecomers.  On Wednesdays the director acts as host.

Random Seeded Teams

This competition will take place on the fourth Thursday of each month except December.   It is proving very popular but for administration purposes and to ensure we do not end up with an odd number of pairs you must sign on the notice board to indicate you wish to take part by the Monday preceding the event.  The current scores can be seen under the "Competition" menu and "Random Seeded Teams Points".

 
Afternoon Bridge

There is less than 4 weeks until we restart afternoon bridge on September 20.  We have been informed of interest in afternoon sessions and hope these duplicate sessions on the first and third Tuesday of each month will prove a success.  There will not be a host but should you wish to play on Tuesday but dont have a partner, Sandra Ward-Brown is happy to accept phone calls to try and help people looking to pair up for a session.  Please arrive at the club between 1.30pm and 2.00pm for these sessions.

Interrupted Electricity Supply

Recently we have encountered a lack of electricity on more than one occasion.  You will be delighted to hear that the school has taken measures to ensure, as far as is possible, that this does not recur.  Prior to finding the source of the problem which they have now done, they had switched the Bridge Club onto a separate circuit so that our supply would not trip out if the problem recurred.  We are grateful to the school that they have taken such care over our problem and delighted that we are unlikely to face further problems.

NICKO Success

Our NICKO team won a close fought match against West Sussex Bridge club in Round 5  of the plate.   Fortunately, our team were playing their best bridge and have extended their winning run in this competition to 5 matches and are now in the semi finals of this national competition where they have been drawn against Young Chelsea club.  We wish them every success.

Changes and New Sessions

SUPERVISED PLAY IS MOVING TO WEDNESDAYS

Supervised play will move to WEDNESDAY AFTERNOONS in September, starting on 28 September. It will continue to run in its current successful format, led by Peter Burns.   Please make a note in your diary now of the new time and starting date.  For more information, see Supervised Play section under Bridge Lessons.

TUESDAY AFTERNOON BRIDGE

Following a number of requests, the club is introducing new bridge sessions at 2.00 pm on the 1st and 3rd TUESDAYS of the month, starting on September 20th.  It will be regular duplicate session, directed and scored as usual.  Please make a note in your diaries and support the event.

Which Session?

The bridge sessions at Chichester club are diverse and hopefully cater to the desires of all our members.   All our evenings are open to all members and those who are new to bridge or less experienced will always be welcome even at our most competitive evenings.    It is a good way to improve.  However, for many, we realise that a gentler, more relaxed, approach is their desire.   On Saturday nights the bridge is more relaxed and usually only 24 boards are completed as opposed to the 27 on Monday and Thursday evening.     Wednesday night is called GENTLE bridge night and it is our intention to make that night more appropriate for those new to bridge and those who prefer a less rigorous session.   We aim to complete just 21 boards and make all players feel at ease.  Hence, we would frown on experienced players using complex bidding systems and expect no more than basic Acol to be used.   The Director, rather than reading from the EBU rule book, may make helpful constructive suggestions.   However, the evening is still an official EBU P2P night and will have master points awarded at the same rate as any other night.   Pick the evening that suits you best.    As a member you are welcome at all four and visitors new to the club are welcome to trial each session until they find the session(s) most appropriate or exceed six attendances, at which point they would be invited to join.
