WELCOME

Chichester Bridge Club is a friendly club which provides duplicate bridge and bridge classes for its members and potential members. New members and visitors are welcome. To get to know the club and its members, visitors may attend up to six bridge sessions per calendar year after which they are requested to apply for membership.

New Teams Event September 24

September 24 Teams Night

From September 24 we plan to hold a Teams evening on the fourth Thursday of each month.  This will be run along the lines of the Weak-Strong Teams held at the Avenue Club.  The idea has been very successful there and we are happy to borrow their innovative idea.   The basic idea is that pairs sign up for teams of four as usual but on the night the pairs are divided into a strong half and a weaker half.  Teams of four are then drawn entirely at random with one pair from each half and the evening is played as a teams of four evening and scored accordingly.  However, during the evening the pairs regarded as the weaker pairs will only play against other weaker pairs and the same applies to the stronger pairs.  These evenings have proved attractive to players of all standards at The Avenue club and have introduced weaker players to teams with guidance from their stronger team-mates whilst giving the stronger players an evening of teams against only similar standard stronger pairs.  Good fun bridge for all!

This could be a wonderful opportunity for players from every night of the week to meet and play together as team mates and learn how to play and score in a teams event.   Master points will be awarded at the usual rate to the winners etc.    A set of rules is published in the Competitions section.    Please sign up for this event on the sheet which is pinned up on the notice board.  Please sign on the highest available line on the sheet in the clubhouse.   Teams will be drawn on the night.  If you are the last pair to sign up and there is no other pair to make up a team of four, you will be unable to compete.    

NICKO Entries

The deadline for the NICKO competition has rather crept up on us this year.  The closing date is September 17.  This is a national competition for teams of four, though six people can be listed as team members (full rules can be found on the EBU site).  The club is happy to pay the entry fee for any members who form a team representing the club but team members will be responsible for all travelling expenses and catering expenses for home matches when it is expected that a tea will be provided for visiting teams.  Home matches can be played at a player’s home.  Please contact David Telfer by Thursday, September 10 if you wish to enter a team in this event.

Charity Evening Prizes

Charity Evening October 15 in aid of Chichester Area Talking News

 

We look forward to seeing you on our Charity Evening on 15 October. Chichester Area Talking News is a local charity, providing local news, recorded on memory stick or CD for visually impaired people.

We will gladly accept any prizes to be awarded or raffled on the evening. Your generous donations will be gratefully received and (if non-perishable) stored in the cupboard at any time leading up to this event. 

Director Training

The club currently has several directors but is always looking to provide the necessary training for anyone who has the inclination to be a director.   The training is not onerous.   If you feel that you may like to direct occasionally at the club please ask any committee member for more information.

Membership Secretary Required

URGENTLY REQUIRED

The committee is grateful to Ian Bartle, Peter Burns and David Telfer, who have all joined the committee. Ian is taking on the role of treasurer, Peter will be in overall charge of Scorebridge / Bridgemates and, David will be our Webmaster. We are, however, still looking for a new Membership Secretary. If you feel you can help, please contact Julie Jones or any other member of the committee as a matter of urgency. The current membership secretary has offered to help train the new officer in all aspect of the role.

PLEASE consider helping the club to continue to run efficiently – it needs your expertise!
