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 may not be possible to accommodate latecomers.
Perhaps you are new to the Bridge club or a regular member whose partner is unavailable one evening. What to do? If it is our Thursday evening session there should be no problem as we run a host system and if you come along to the session, preferably a few minutes earlier, we should be able to arrange a partner. For other sessions there are people who may be able to help you find a partner.

This competition will take place on the fourth Thursday of each month from October to June. In December, the proximity of the fourth Thursday to Christmas day may mean the bridge club is closed and the competition will not run that month. 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".
The Ladder is played on the third Monday of the month from October through to June (nine heats). It is a pairs competition for members and no substitutes are allowed but guests and visitors may take part in the heats. Players may elect as to which of their partners is their "Ladder Partner". Each heat is a normal duplicate pairs evening except that it is a single winner competition (Howell or Scrambled Mitchell). Points are awarded in 1.5 per cent increments from 0 for less than 36.5%, through 10 for between 50.0% and 51.49%, and up to a maximum of 20 points for 65.0% or more. The best 6 out of 9 possible results count, and the winning pair is that with the highest total of points. The winners hold the Ray Meredith cup for one year from July to June.
Would you please let Cliff Vince know if he has you with the wrong partner, or if you think there are any other errors or omissions.
