If you are inviting a Visitor to the club:
Board Orientation: The board should be left in the centre of the table. This rule is not new. Miss-boarding is quite common and without any doubt the cause of these miss boardings can be traced back to the board having been moved from the centre of the table. The only thing new is that the board has to be oriented correctly. If there is no room for the board in the centre of the table, it can be moved with the agreement of all four players to the side of the table but it must contain it's correct orientation.
We have engaged renowned Bridge Teacher and this year’s winner of the prestigious ‘Duais an Uachtarain’ competition, Seamus Costello, to deliver his syllabus of classes in the club on Friday nights. These classes are suitable for A’s and progressive B’s, however, anyone interested in improving their bridge, will learn from this tutor.
Next Series of 4 Classes is on ‘Card Play’ and will commence on 18th January 2019, covering the following key areas:-
Friday 18th January - Handling Card Combinations, Covering Honours, Safety Plays
Friday 25th January - Communication Plays, Blocking/Unblocking
