Welcome to South Bucks Bridge Club

The Laurie Champniss
Bridge Centre

A Memorial Ceremony to celebrate the life of Laurie Champniss was held at the Bridge Club on 11th October. Tributes to Laurie came from friends and acquaintances who had known him since his prep school days including several anecdotes about his skill as a cricketer and as a golfer, in his two great enthusiasms before bridge.

Laurie was entirely responsible for the creation and existence of the bridge centre in our lovely old barn and it was announced that henceforth this will be known as
The Laurie Champniss Bridge Centre.


Andrew Robson Seminar

Andrew is back to entertain and teach us with his latest seminar on Thursday November 16th.

This year it starts at 5pm - 9pm and the price of £20 includes a light tea supplied in the break.

The topics he will be covering are:
 

Five Categories of Trump Contracts – planning the play of a trump contract by categorising the strategy required for each type.

Defending No Trumpsfocusing on the right thinking to defeat no-trump contracts 

 

Numbers will be limited so please email chrys@southbucksbridge.club or phone 01628 668700 to confirm your place.

Advance payment is necessary; cheques to be made out to 'South Bucks Bridge Club'.

 

Disabled Parking

We are receiving an increasing number of complaints from blue badge holders that they cannot park in the disabled car parking spaces and there seem to be cars parked there without badges. 

If you do hold a blue badge then please display it. If however you have been parking there for convenience please use the car parking spaces provided behind the building or alternatively on a very busy day it is acceptable to park carefully on the drive. 

Thank you for your cooperation. 

LEARN TO PLAY BRIDGE

Whether you are on your own or come along with friends, we will make you feel very welcome at all our classes. We take no money until after the first lesson to ensure that this game is for you.

Daytime course starts Monday 25th September (10.30 am - 12.30 pm)

Evening course starts Wednesday 27th September (7.30 pm - 9.30 pm)

Smoking & Parking

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 2017/18 league of eight season will be starting in September and we have 3 teams entered in the league.  The captains are:

A Team:   Ron Hoar

B Team:   Maggi Giblin

C Team:   Ranjan Patel                                                     

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.

Play it Again and Results Analysis

Our Bridgewebs web site makes "Play it Again" facilities available for any hand which has been played at a Club pairs event.  It also can show detailed Results Analysis for any player in an event.
