Minehead Bridge Club

Welcome to Minehead Bridge Club. We are a small friendly club and we play duplicate bridge on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at the  Minehead Methodist Church Hall (please click on the 'Information" tab in the left hand column for further details). We use Bridge Mates for computerised scoring on both evenings and on Tuesday evenings Master Points are awarded but on Thursdays, when it is a little more relaxed with a mix of beginners and more experienced players, a prize can be won by the winning pair! There is always a spare partner for each evening except for competition nights.Visitors are very welcome to either or both evenings.

Bridge in Somerset –An Initiative

 

How can the SCBA best support its clubs? What makes a successful bridge club?

The Fast Track to Bridge learning programme

We want to make bridge in Somerset twice as good as it is. In order to launch the initiative, I am gathering a number of interested parties to meet for tea and cake and to explore ideas. Below are some of the people who already intend to come and share their wisdom. I would be delighted if at least one representative would come from every bridge club to help us make Somerset an even more important and lively bridge county. Anybody interested in the future of bridge is welcome to attend.

There will be short presentations from:

Tony Russ (Chairman SCBA) Bev Purvis (What makes a successful bridge club)

Ceri Pierce and Ned Paul (Fast Track to Bridge)

Terry Collier (Wind of Change in Bridge) James Ward (Club Management)

Val Cornock (First for Bridge) Frome Bridge Club (Phoenix from the ashes)

Graham Daniel - Kingston Seymour Bridge Club (Birth of a new club)

Frank Coltman (Tournament Organiser)

In attendance and demonstrating their products will be:

Pianola Arc Scorer Dealer 4 Bridgemate BriAn Bridge First For Bridge Bridgetab

The event will finish with an open forum to discuss issues raised during the day. 

Bridge Congress

 

WEST OF ENGLAND CONGRESS

 

You may already be one of the many who have registered for Weston2017 but if not I write to draw your attention to the biggest event of our bridge year in Somerset, namely the annual West of England Congress at Weston Super Mare. This year's event takes place over three days from September 30th to October 1st and already many registrations to take part have been received. This event is always very popular and so please do not leave it too late to enter should you wish to take part. 
You can find all the details by clicking here and you can download an entry form here.

There are events for all but the Friday afternoon events are especially suited to those wishing to play at a congress for the first time.


You may prefer not to print a form, fill it in, put it in an envelope, address and stamp it and walk to the post box to post it! Its much easier to  enter on line or send an email or simply ring 01935 816566 and to make things even easier you can pay on line.
