Some pictures from our enjoyable event.

CHARITY DAY     May 11th 2017

The total amount raised for The Thames Valley Air Ambulance Service was £3,004 of which £1,970 was from the sale of raffle tickets

To sell that many tickets you have to have attractive prizes and local hotels and businesses were extremely generous.  The two main prizes were the helicopter trip for 2 to a premiership football match at Newcastle United donated by Keith Ashley, and 2 tickets for the Boodles Tennis Day in Stoke Park given to us by Laurie Champniss.

Directors and management of SBBC, Bridge Directors and Teachers all gave their time on the day helping out in the kitchen, serving food and clearing up afterwards, running the bridge games, taking pictures, and of course selling all those raffle tickets.  Many thanks for all your hard work.

We also want to thank Tudor Barn Weddings for supplying tea and coffee to over 120 people. 

Lastly there are two individuals we would like to thank separately.   Joanne, who prepared and organised the plated teas and worked from 7.00am to bake 120 cup cakes with the TVAA logo on each one.
Special thanks also go to Laurie Champniss who has not been well recently but still managed to support us in this venture.   Get well soon Laurie.

Those of us who were involved in helping would like to add our thanks to Brenda, who originated the event and spent a lot of hours over many months in organising it.

 

The winner of the main prize, kindly donated by Barbara and Keith Ashby, was Heather Perry:

 

Smoking & Parking

As summer is drawing near and the weather is hotting up, we are likely to have the main barn doors open.  Would all smokers please show consideration to other bridge players by smoking in the designated area out through the bar door at the back of the barn.

Car parking in the courtyard is strictly for residents, disabled drivers and the management.  There is ample parking in the rear car parks which are patrolled by the security guard between 1900 and 2300 hrs.  On exceptionally busy days parking is allowed on the road leading to the car parks.

Your co-operation is much appreciated. 

League of Eight

 

The 2016/17 league of eight season is now over and we are looking forward to the next season. We hope that as many current members as possible will continue to play for us in 2017/18 but we would be delighted to have new members join the League in September. Our teams are in Divisions 3 and 4 - both friendly divisions, where taking part and enjoying the matches are the most important aspects of the League.

If you think you would like to join us or have any questions, please let Brenda, Chrys or Heather know and we shall do our best to allocate you to a team. All are welcome.

Looking forward to seeing you all next season

Please arrive in good time

Try to arrive 10 minutes before the starting time for any bridge session.

If you might be late phone 01628 668700 to notify the Director, or contact your partner.

It is very unhelpful and impolite to the Director, your partner and the other players to be late

If you are late, without having notified the Club, you might not be allowed to play.  This is especially important for the larger sessions where table numbering and movement might need to be changed according to the number of tables in play.
