Visitor to Cornwall?

As the most popular county in England in which to holiday, all our clubs are happy to welcome visiting bridge players for some mental stimulation after a relaxing day on the beach or walking the coastline! Again, contact the appropriate club secretary via Cornish Bridge Clubs page so they know to expect you.

Cornwall Congress 18-20 September 2015

WE'RE VERY EXCITED ABOUT THIS YEAR'S CONGRESS!

As well as moving from Spring to Autumn next year, the venue for our three day Congress will change to the attractive Falcon Hotel in Bude. The Championship Pairs will be brought forward to Friday, with green-pointed events on both Saturday (Swiss Pairs) and Sunday (Swiss Teams). B&B at the hotel starts at £50.00 per person per night in a single or standard double room, with a full range of meals available in the hotel throughout each day. The hotel only has 29 bedrooms, so anyone wishing to book their accommodation early should ring the hotel on 01288 352005 quoting "Bridge Congress". There are, of course, a large number of other hotels and restaurants in Bude, non of which is far from the Falcon. The entry form/prospectus can be downloaded from this website; can be picked up at any county event; can be requested from Chris Bickerdike. A quantity will also be sent to each club within the county shortly.

STOP PRESS : WITH ONLY 30 TABLES CAPACITY IT IS IMPORTANT TO GET YOUR ENTRIES IN ASAP TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT.

CURRENT ENTRIES :  NOVICE PAIRS : 5    CHAMPIONSHIP PAIRS : 34     CONSOLATION PAIRS ; 3*     SWISS PAIRS : 50       SWISS TEAMS : 25  * Non-qualifiers for the Championship Final automatically go into the Consolation Pairs.

FALCON HOTEL RESERVATIONS : THE HOTEL IS NOW FULL

Introduction
