We are a small Duplicate Bridge Club which started in 1977. Christmas Day seems to be only reason for at least some of us not to fore-gather and play, not because we are hugely or terrifyingly competitive but purely because it is enjoyable. The ethos of the club is friendly and relaxed apart from occasional bickering about the state of the stationery cupboard.
Visitors and guests are welcome and as we run a host system- partnerless players are no problem.
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 £2.00 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 for 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.
The Conservative Club provides a comfortable home for us. Not only is there a largish recently re-furbished room, but also a well stocked fully licenced bar or tea and coffee. Please click here for more details about the Conservative Club.
We could rattle through a session if these few suggestions alone were acted upon by everyone.
1) North must CHECK BOARD AND PAIR numbers before taking out cards.
2) The opening lead followed immediately by Dummy’s Hand going down must be done BEFORE filling in of score cards with the contract.
This gives Declarer a chance to plan while everyone else attends to their admin as required.
It might only be a minute or so but over 24 boards that’s nearly half an hour that could be better spent.
3) Finally , please claim a hand as soon as you can possibly do so.
Soon I shall upload THE EBU RULES OF GOOD BEHAVIOUR just so we get 2018 off to a civilised start.
Please check out the information pages or contact Jill Bowring (Club Secretary) 01728 602938 or Glyn Button on 01728 831647 for any information.
Look on the drop down menu on the LHS for the RELAXED WEDNESDAYS tab. On this page you will find a brief explanation of what we do on Wednesdays.
♥ MENTORING NIGHT♥ is every 2nd Monday of the month (NOT IN MARCH AND APRIL 2018PLEASE CHECK CALENDAR). GO TO THE DROP DOWN MENU ON LHS TO LET US KNOW YOU WISH TO COME ALONG. This is for anyone who would like a more experienced and friendly partner with which to take the plunge of playing on Monday Evenings. You can play with your mentor for as many times as you like up to 12 times. Please let Jill Bowring 01728602938 or Glyn Button 01728831647 know in advance so we can make sure you have the right partner.
At the moment there are beginners classes starting in September and January taught by me, Jill, and administered by Coastal Leisure Learning 01728 833171. I can also teach privately in your home or you can come to me. Maybe if we get enough for 2or 3 tables we can start lessons on a Wednesday afternoon in the Con Club. Give me a ring if you interested, and we can chat about what you want - you never know there might be 3 others already to go but waiting for a 4th to join in.
