Hand Records Will Come

If you look at the results from Thursday November 16th and click on travellers, you will see not just the traveller but also the actual deal.  When our dealing machine comes in to general use this will become the normal facility.  We should also be able to add information about the optimum contracts to be had from each deal.

Coming soon!

The Dealing Machine is Being Tested

We have purchased our dealing machine and now we are learning to use it (not so difficult) and how to use the software (a bit more tricky).  We should be in a position to start using computer-dealt boards in the near future - we will keep you informed about progress.

If you are not already familiar with the concept of a dealing machine and the benefits it brings to a club, click this message to read more.

The Highest Accolade to Ben

The English Bridge Union has named Ben Norton as Young Player of The Year.  What a wonderful tribute to someone who has contributed so much to our club.  It could not have happened to a nicer young man!  Well done Ben.

A Couple of Good Scores

It was very pleasing to see that two pairs from our club did well in the national scoring of the recent simultaneous pairs:

Brian and Sheila Stockdale were 32nd nationally with 62.12%

Dave Buckley and Chris Howe were 39th nationally with 61.77%

Well done to you!

Bridgemates - Taking Care

Both sides are urged to be very careful in entering and agreeing the contract and the tricks.  On occasion we see impossible scores.  The Director who is trying to play bridge cannot do much to check on what you enter.  After the bridge is over the Director has no power to change these impossible scores unless the pairs concerned can help.  Otherwise, the scores entered must stand.

Children in Need National Results

We raised £120 for Children in Need - many thanks to the 36 players who took part and did mighty battle with the dodgy deals!  As always happens, our local results look quite different when put alongside the scores from other clubs.  So, Azam and David were top N/S in our club but their percentage was quite a lot less than Pat and Gary who came top E/W.  But it is Azam and David who have the better score in the national context.

Our N/S scores can be seen here.

Our E/W scores can be seen here.

All of the Thursday evening scores can be seen here. 

The commentary booklet (PDF) can be downloaded as well.
