Welcome to the Neptune Bridge Club Bridgewebs website.  We play at the Grand Hotel, Wicklow, every Thursday, with a 7.30 p.m. start so please be seated by 7.20 p.m.

New members are always welcome, please contact club President, Eleanor O'Flaherty on 086 8405370.  Visitors with partners are welcome.  

Welcome to our Novices

On our first night back on September 7th our Lady President, Eleanor O'Flaherty welcomed everyone and gave a special warm welcome to our new members, all of whom are novices, having recently completed their first course of lessons with our colleague and past member, Bernadette Rountree.  The club will now run two sections, a Novice section and a section for Masters, A's and B's.  Eleanor wished everyone a very enjoyable year of bridge.

Lady President, Eleanor together with our tournament director, Noeleen Redmond, attended the CBAI one day course for TD's covering the changes to the laws governing bridge.  Eleanor gave a brief overview to our members of these changes.

President's Dinner

Our president, Maria Kerr, held her President's dinner, jointly with Gertie Hallihan, president of our neighbouring club,The Abbey Bridge Club on Friday, January 27th. Once again, the staff at the Grand Hotel, Wicklow surpassed themselves with beautifully laid out tables and a fabulous meal which was enjoyed by everyone. Then, onto the main event, the announcing of the winners of both clubs' presidents' prizes. Very popular winners were Michael O'Gorman taking 1st prize of Maria's beautiful luggage in the Neptune club and Joan D'Arcy taking 1st prize of Gertie's fabulous painting in the Abbey Club. A full list of winners has been posted in the results section of each of the clubs here on Bridgewebs.

After prize giving, we all enjoyed a fun game of bridge which was kindly run by Peter McWalter and, again, results are posted in the results section here. Overall, the joint dinner proved a very successful event and a very enjoyable evening was had by everyone.

 

Teams of 4 Event

Club President Maria Kerr welcomed all the visitors, thanked John Royds for directing and wished everyone luck. Twenty pairs arrived to play in this very enjoyable open competition.  It was effortlessly directed by John Royds who, having decided on the most suitable movement, let each pair know which other pair they had been drawn with to make up the full team and the fun began.  John posted end-of-round results after each round and there was great excitement as teams vied to stay ahead.  Joan D'Arcy's team appeared to be sure of second place throughout the competition but were pipped at the post at the very last round by Linda Saunders' team who had a superb last-round score and secured second place, quite a distance behind the all-evening leaders, Cyril Goode's team who won by a very strong margin and took home first prize.  Everyone agreed it was a most enjoyable night and congratulated the winners.

Maria Kerr, President's Prize January 19th 2017

Our President, Maria Kerr, held her President's Prize on Thursday, January 19th 2017.  Forty players participated in a 10 table, 27 board competition.  The hands were very interesting and some were very tricky to bid, however everyone managed to get all 27 boards played. This year, for our annual President's Dinner, Neptune Bridge Club has joined forces with our neighbouring club, Abbey Bridge Club and the two presidents, Maria Kerr and Gertie Hallihan will host a joint Presidents' Dinner on Friday January 27th in the Grand Hotel, Wicklow. We'll have to wait until then to find out who the lucky winners are. 

Team of 4 Open Competition Thursday March 2nd 2017 at 7.15p.m.

Everyone is welcome to play in the Neptune Bridge Club's Open Teams of 4 on Thursday, March 2nd 2017.  All you need to do is to turn up with a partner and we'll pair you with another couple.   A great night's fun is promised - play bridge from a slightly different perspective.

Most of us are familiar with Bridge being played by "teams of 2"; that is, two people on one team versus two people on another team. But there is a way of playing Bridge with four people on one team. Obviously they will not be playing against each other. Then how is this done? One Team-of-4 will have to play against another team of 4. That is done by having half of one team (2 people) play against half of another team (2 people).  Come along on the night and all will be explained!
