Welcome to Dundee Bridge Club
LEARN TO DEAL THE BOARDS

Would you like to give a little time to help the club, by dealing sets of boards, perhaps helping out when Damien is on holiday?  It's fairly straightforward, and doesn't take too much time. If so, come along at 2pm on Sunday 29th July and learn to use the Duplimate machine, or refresh your skills if you've done it at some time in the past. There's a sign up sheet on the notice board, or have a word with Helen Taylor, or Damien.

TROPHIES - Do you have one at home?

To all last year's successful players. Hope you've enjoyed displaying your trophy to all your friends. However, now is the time to bring them back to the Club if possible, so that Anne can arrange for the jewellers' to do their bit of cutting and polishing, before prize-giving looms up. Your help would be appreciated.

ATTENTION ALL 'NORTHS'

ENTERING PLAYERS SBU NUMBERS IN BRIDGEMATES.

Please note that if a player does not have an SBU Number, or doesn't remember their SBU Number, you must simply PRESS OK, and it will move onto the next player.

PLEASE DO NOT ENTRE A '0' OR ANY OTHER NUMBER as that makes an awful mess of the scoring system. Thank you.

PLAY SESSIONS FOR SBU BRIDGE CLASS STUDENTS - Mondays and Thursdays now.
PLAY SESSIONS FOR SBU BRIDGE CLASS STUDENTS - Mondays and Thursdays now.

Mondays: 2 - 4 pm.

Following the end of Monday classes, the new weekly bridge play and learn session being trialled at DBC is now on a Monday  from 2 pm to 4 pm. All current students at bridge classes and those who are within 12 months of leaving classes, who would like to get more play experience will be welcomed. The format, agreed by discussion with students, will be play 4 hands under club conditions, then pause to discuss bidding/play of those hands, then further 4 hands and so on. Hopefully this should help particlarly those who have little play experience to make sense of the lessons, and also help you to gradually remember what you have already learned. Come along and give it a try!7.

Thursdays: Due to insufficient numbers the Thursday morning coaching sessions have been cancelled until further notice.

Thursdays: 7.15 pm - 9.15 pm

Supported play sessions on Thursday evenings will commence on Thursday 3rd May. Come along and practice the skills you've learned, with Helen on hand to advise and guide your progress.

Please remember to always arrive 10 minutes before session start time.

FOR THOSE WHO'VE COMPLETED SOME CLASSES - Time to get in some practice?
  • THURSDAY MORNINGS, 10.00 am - 13.00.  (Arrive by 9.45 please) This session was set up specifically for those who are ready to try club duplicate bridge.  Now is the time for Improvers to come along and give it a try. Let the Tournament Director know when you arrive that you're dipping your toes in the water, and he or she will make sure you're looked after, and understand how it runs. Once you've been along a few times, the classses will hopefuly make more sense.

Alternatively if you can't make a Thursday morning, 

  • Friday afternoon session (1 pm to 4.30 pm) is equally friendly but quite a bit busier.
  • Wednesday afternoon session (1 pm to 4.30 pm) - also very friendly and not too busy but with a wider variety of players

Those who can't play during the day may try the

  • Tuesday evening session (7 pm to 10.30 pm) which is certainly much busier, and with a wider range of players, but will also welcome your attendance.

NB All of these sessions have a standby system in operation. That means you can arrive without a partner, and a partner will be made available to you. Make sure you tell your partner that you're new to club duplicate bridge, and want to play Basic Acol with a Weak No Trump. When booking in to any session, please do arrive at the latest, 15 mins before the start and do let the person on the desk know you have just come from classes and aren't very experienced, and someone will then ensure you are looked after.

Go on, don't let what you've learned go to waste - getting some playing practice sometimes makes it stick better than pouring over notes.
