A Grand day with a GrandMaster.
On Thursday 18th, we welcomed Scotland’s top graded Bridge player Liz McGowan to Skye and Lochlash for a 24 hour fundraising trip. Grandmaster Liz McGowan is the playing captain of the Scottish Ladies Team which this year has won a place in the 44th World Team Championships being played in Wuhan, China in September. The team is fundraising for their travel expenses and Liz is offering coaching sessions to any club asking for her services. We took up the offer and managed to raise £450 for the cause through holding two successful coaching sessions on Friday 19th in the Plockton Inn. Liz entertained an enthusiastic group of 22 players with her humorous style of delivery and honest acknowledgement that even the champions don’t have all the answers. She lectured on card play, both as declarer and defender, following on with demonstration hands to play and discuss. The event was stimulating fun for novices and experts alike.
Liz has been representing Britain in International tournaments since 1988 and is also the non-playing captain with many of the British youth teams. She is a great supporter of Bridge being taught in schools and was delighted to hear that it is now being taught in Glenelg, Loch Duich and Plockton primaries.
Unfortunately we can no longer meet on Thursday evenings in the Lighthouse Centre. They will rent Wednesday evenings to us and we hope that will work out well.
Next Wednesday 7th May, 6.45, the duplicate pairs will be in the Nice Cafe Kyleakin.
Please bear with us, while we go through a transition period. We’ll always meet to play this crazy game somewhere on some day of the week. Just club teething problems.
Thanks to Gillian, KoLBC Monday and Friday afternoons are currently in the White Heather Hotel in Kyleakin on Skye. 2-4.30. Every week. Call it what you want- Gentle Bridge? Chatty Bridge? Play and Learn? Supported Bridge? Easy Duplicates? It’s a few hours of fun play, usually with Steve Terry there to ask for advice, if you want advice.
Join in! If you bring the biscuits or cake for everyone, you get a free session! Otherwise, Gillian only wants £2 per person to cover costs. THANK YOU Gillian!
