Please make sure you bring your entry/exit ticket into the bridge room with you where it will be collected. Normally the Exit barrier is placed on "automatic" at the end of play so you do not need a ticket to leave.

CHRISTMAS NEW YEAR 2014/5

                                     
After a survey of Members this years Christmas events will basically follow previous years formats with a special party bridge night on Wednesday 17 December including a light buffet meal and a short quiz. There will also be the annual Individual Trophy (The Riccomini) to be played at a date to be determined over the Christmas/New Year period and again there will be a light buffet meal. 24/25 players is the ideal number.

There will be no bridge on Wednesdays 25 & 31 December or Thursdays 26 December and 1 January 2015. The new year will start with the AGM on Wednesday 7 January and Thursdays will start with Teams on the 8 January, all subsequent events being one week later in the month which has five Thursdays. Watch the Calendar to confirm.

There will not be a separate Bearsted party this year, the main event, The Brook Trophy, will be held on the afternoon of 3 December. If you are interested in playing in this special individual competition let Barry Quinnell know. Normal bridge will recommence on 6 January 2015.

Don't forget these are all Maidstone Club events so you can come to along Wednesday or Thursday.

Watch this space for further details.

 

 

ICE BRIDGE
ICE BRIDGE

For some years now John Walker has been helping his Civil Engineering colleagues in London arrange an annual Teams Bridge Competition for the Brunel Trophy. The event takes place each October at the impressive Institute of Civil Engineers Building in Great George Street, Westminster London and John, who "borrows" tables and cloths from local Clubs, loads his car and arrives early in the morning to help the Director set up. Play commences at 11am and continues after lunch 55 boards being played in total, duplimated of course, by John. Afterwards a dinner is held in a restaurant in nearby Covent Garden. Pictured is John and partner Alex Gibb at this years dinner, their team mates were Richard Sissons and Jenny Kendall and in a strong field the team came a respectable 6th.
