CLUB TEAMS OF 8, COLCHESTER 2PM . 11TH NOVEMBER.
Our last afternoon with The Con Club as our home is on 19th December 2018. We resume play on Monday 7th January 2019 in our new home at St Michael's Rooms, just opposite the Con Club. This is not an entirely new home as FBC played there for many years many years ago. Please note there is no bar there, but we do have the use of the kitchen, and I'll bring in the wherewithal for us to make our own tea or coffee.
We are a small Duplicate Bridge Club which started in 1977. The ethos of the club is friendly and relaxed apart from occasional bickering about the state of the stationery cupboard.
Overall we try to ensure that everyone from those with just a few lessons under their belt to competent players can find a place within our club to join in. There are four levels so that very new or less confident people can progress without panic towards playing confidently in our main duplicate Session on Monday evenings (7pm start of play). Anyone is welcome to join in at which every level they feel is appropriate.
Please check these TABS on the main menu
All visitors are welcome, with or without partners. Just turn up 10-15 mins before either duplicate sesson- i.e.6.45pm on Monday, or 1.45pm on Wednesday. Any queries - please phone or email Jill Bowring 602938, email@example.com
Visitors and guests are welcome . No partner? No problem we have a host system.
Club night is on Monday, start of play is 7pm sharp. Table money £1.00, Visitors £2.00.
Wednesday afternoons (2pm start of play). Table money of £2.50 includes tea or coffee. There is a duplicate session with fewer boards played in the session, usually around 14-18 in total. At present EBU master points are not awarded for this session. Alongside this there are tables where learners or those wishing to practice, or to hone their partnership bidding system can play - help and tuition is available on demand. You do not need a partner to join in
Please check out the information pages or contact Jill Bowring (Club Secretary) 01728 602938 or Glyn Button on 01728 831647 for any information.
On Monday 17th December caution shall be thrown to the wind as we forget about competing for Master points and try our hardest to succeed at the various tasks set by Jacky. There shall be prizes, of course, most of which can be sniffed at, but we in Britain don't mind about paltry prizes as it is spirit of entering and having fun that is important. And on that mention of FUN I suggest all of you try and find a sprig of holly to tuck behind your ear, or substitiute some tinsel for your shoe laces otherwise I fear Jacky will be settling down to a winter of making elf costumes for us all next year. Should anyone wish to borrow a pair of Christmas Elf tights (unused) for men , just say the word and I'll let you have them.
ALL WEDNESDAY PLAYERS WILL BE TOLERATED ON THIS MONDAY (I usually say 'more than welcome' but not many turn up , so I thought I would change the tone and see if that works). If you really can't come along on Monday 17th then we will be having another party on Wednesday 19th. our last day at the CON Club.
All visitors are welcome, with or without partners. Just turn up 10-15 mins before either duplicate sesson- i.e.6.45pm on Monday, or 1.45pm on Wednesday.Any queries - please phone or email Jill Bowring 602938, firstname.lastname@example.org
At last I have catalogued the books. Please go to the main menu, scroll down to LENDING LIBRARY. In that section there is a list of all the books, and a form for you to submit if you'd like to borrow one. I'll bring it in for the next session.
