NEW - Club questionnaire re Morning Bridge

The club is considering whether to trial a weekly session of morning social duplicate bridge. This format has proved popular in other parts of the country. A questionnaire has been developed to seek member's views. These will be available at remaining club sessions in November and on the club notice board. In addition, a copy is attached to this notice (click on the message and open the attachment). If you would prefer to email this, or send any other views, to chrisphillips959@sky.com, this can be added into the feedback.

Please take time to consider this, the club is keen to provide bridge at the times, and in the format, that members want.

Bainton Trophy

Members will be aware this competition is one of the county's most popular and prestigious events. Clubs hold a qualifier and any pair with more than 50% (50.01%+!) can progress to a semi-final and, potentially, final to be held early in 2018.

Previously clubs were only allowed to hold one qualifying event, in Lincoln this was historically on a Thursday, which disadvantaged those who play on Mondays or Wednesdays. This year the rules have been relaxed a little to allow more players to participate. Therefore Lincoln will be holding qualifiers on Thursday 23rd November, Monday 27th November and Wednesday 29th November.

A partnership can still only play in one qualifier. However, individuals may try and qualify with different partners on each of the three events if they like, or even at other County clubs. Of course they can only play in the semi-final with one partner so need to be clear on their preferences at the outset.

Finally just a reminder that just because you qualify doesn't mean you have to play in the semi-final. It is always your choice.
