The County has long had feedback that events at the weekend or evenings do not suit everybody so the next competition is a new innovation, a midweek Pairs event to be held on Thursday 16th May at Dunholme Village Hall starting at 12pm. It will be an All-Comers event so a friendly competition but with the added benefit of a special afternoon tea provided by Gloria Elwick.
Please support this new initiative if you can. The idea is that more experienced players pair up with less experienced players wherever possible.
Cost is £10 to enter.
Entries via the Lincs Bridge website where you find more details.
Please note that, as usual, there will be no Monday Bridge on Bank Holidays in April and May ie Easter Monday (22nd April) and May Bank Holidays on 6th and 27th May.
The City of Lincoln Club teaches bridge on Tuesday evenings at 7pm in the Lindum Sports Association, St. Giles Avenue, Lincoln LN2 4PE.

The Committee has decided that this year all the club trophies that have been won in 2018 will be presented at a future event of the session in which they were won, ie Mondays winners on a future Monday.
The 2018 winners have been added to the competition winners part of this website, when a date to present these is agreed it would be great if all winners can attend wherever possible.
There still unreturned trophies from 2017 please return it to Janet Collins as soon as practical, to get 2018 winners names engraved and presented.
We put some interesting hands in this section from time to time, they are aimed at the typical club player who wants to get better. Why not have a look? If you have any nominations please let us know.
The Club is aware of a number of members who do not have regular partners for one or more of our scheduled bridge sessions.
