News about our Club Weekend

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.  Places will be limited so put the dates in your diary.  Booking forms will be available before Easter.

Suzanne Thomson RIP

Sadly we have to tell you that our dear friend and long-time member of the club, Suzanne Thomson, passed away last week.  Her funeral will be held at 10.45am on Tuesday 13 March at Amersham Crematorium, and afterwards at Gerrard's Cross Golf Club.  David, her husband, would like those who attend to wear a little something lilac or purple which were the colours so often worn by Suzanne.  She will be sadly missed.

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.
