If you are thinking of leaving any money to this club in your will, we would put it towards the purchase of an electronic scoring system, which costs around £3,000. This would enable players to see their progress 'live' on a display screen each Monday evening, and not have to wait until the next day to learn their final score.

Scorer Rota

Here is the general time-tabling principle agreed between Carol, Tony and Gavin:

  • 1st Monday in month: Carol Wildig
  • 2nd Monday: Tony Baker
  • 3rd Monday: Gavin Wilson
  • 4th Monday: Gavin
  • 5th Monday (if there is one): Tony

Latest Committee Meeting minutes now online

To read the deliberations of the conclave, go to the left-hand side bar, select 'Meetings of the Club', then 'Committee Meetings'.  Among the topics discussed were:

  • Free evenings
  • Electronic Scoring
  • Etiquette at the table (e.g not hiding away your bids until the opening lead has been faced)
  • Directors not adjudicating at their own table.
Formal Complaint Received

A formal complaint has been received by the chairman from Kevin Goddard and Deanne Goddard regarding an email sent by Gavin Wilson to Deanne Goddard, and copied to the committee, on 12th May 2015. The complaint will be examined by non-conflicted members of the committee at its next meeting, on the 4th June 2015.

Bank Holiday Bridge

Julie Gardiner has secured the Village Hall in Church Road for the club's use on the Bank Holidays of 4th May, 25th May, and 31st August.

The sessions will start at 19.30 as usual, and finish when 24 boards have been played.  Each session will be run and scored by Jaime Bueno.

The results for each session will not be uploaded to the EBU, so there will be no official Masterpoints for the high scorers.  We should be able to display the results on the Club's website.

Refreshments of an unspecified quality could be available, but we are talking kettles rather than constantly available hot water.

One thing we will certainly need is a quantity of bridge tables -- to be provided, we hope, by some of the members who attend.  So we need to estimate the numbers accurately.

We plan to circulate a clipboard on forthcoming evenings at our normal venue so that those of you interested in attending the first session on 4th May can sign up.

Princess Alice Hospice -- Teams event on Sunday 3rd May

The annual charity teams event in West End Lane, Esher, runs from 1pm to 8pm on Sunday 3rd May.  All proceeds will go directly to the Princess Alice Hospice.  Teams of all standards participate in this event.  Anyone familiar with duplicate club bridge will enjoy this competition.

Tea and coffee will be available throughout the day, and a bumper spread will be served at tea-time.

The entry fee, which includes refreshments, is £80 per team, that is, £20 per person.

Entry forms are available at the Claygate Club on Monday evenings.  Otherwise please phone IAN CAVE on 01932 865 414.

100 members and counting

The Club's membership has now reached its highest level for several years.  As there are justified concerns about noise levels in the room when we have more than 15 tables, we would like to put a ceiling on the membership.  We will soon reinstate the Waiting List for prospective new members.  So if anyone is thinking about joining, or any member letting their membership lapse, now is the time to act before the Waiting List is activated. 

Member Subscriptions Now Due

Subscriptions are now due for 2015. You can pay your £10 fee to David Rotherham in two forms: by cash or cheque made out to 'Claygate Bridge Club'. 

  • Cheques can be posted to David at 70, Collingwood Crescent, Guildford, Surrey, GU1 2PF, or handed to him at the club.
  • Cash can only be handed to David at the club, not posted.
  • Please pay promptly. Too many bruises and broken limbs have been sustained in previous years by members who thwarted the Treasurer.

​Many thanks
