Club Weekend 2017 - Winchester

We have just returned from a most enjoyable Club Weekend in Winchester.  The weather was very kind to us as we had wall-to-wall sunshine and very mild temperatures.

Overall winners were Susan & Tony Strawson.  Friday winners were Ann & Peter Donaldson, and Saturday winners were Angela Vince & Ann Marchetti.  Our workshop on The Power of Distribution was extremely well attended and competition winners were Susan & Tony Strawson, and Jacqui Robinson & Susan Soloman.

Team winners were Ginny Robinson & Megan Brodie with Lynn Elvy & Celia Style in Section 1, and Susan & Tony Strawson with Tricia Cope & Gill Wilkie triumphed in Section 2.

Congratulations to all our winners.

 

 

Charity Event

Our Charity Event this year was held on Friday 7 June.   We asked members to make donations for cakes to enjoy during the tea break, and after the bridge session which, together with donations from members who weren't able to be present on the day, and from Ros, Sandy & Chris, raised the amazing sum of £640.  Very many thanks for all your support.

Our chosen charity this year is the Alexander Devine Children's Cancer Hospice Service based at Maidenhead.

The Jean Patefield Trophy was won by Janet Allan & Julian Bloch with an outstanding score 75.46%   Runners up were Judy Galvin & Anne Todd.

 

 

Have we made a mistake?

Queries and appeals about possible errors should be made to the director responsible for the session by 5.00pm on Monday for Friday sessions and by 5.00pm on Thursday for Tuesday sessions.

Bridge Verse

 Frustrated bridge players have often resorted to verse - or worse - to relieve their feelings. "Goodbye to bridge" describes how we all feel on occasions. We all know how to bid and play - but stray from the path of righteousness all too often: "My way" warns partner of our frailties. "Slow play" is a director's lament - though Ros and Sandy have never gone as far as the director in the verse.

To read these well known offerings go to the "Bridge Verse" page via the menu

If anyone has any other interesting pieces of bridge verse, please do let us have them.

We pride ourselves on being a friendly and accessible club and visitors are most welcome.

Table money is £5 (£6 for non-members) including tea and biscuits.

We play computer generated hands and hand records are available to take away.
