After almost 20 years of involvement running the GRBC, I’ve decided the time has come to retire and file away my directing books at the end of June.
Ros, who joined me 7 years ago, has also decided to step back from running the club at the same time. She may well be directing from time to time in the future but will have no direct involvement in the Club.
At the end of June, we will be handing the club over into the capable hands of Rob Wilkinson who runs the GX Bridge School and we’re sure you’ll be very happy with the new ownership as from 1 July 2018.
I’d like to thank you all for your support and for the pleasue you have given to me over the years.
It's the weekend of 16 -18 November and we're going to Worthing. We're staying at the popular Ardington Hotel which is situated adjacent to the seafront in a pretty square and only a short walk across the gardens to the town's shopping centre. Booking forms are available at the Club.
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.
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.
