Convention Cards

A reminder from Ann McMahon, the Chief Director: If you are playing anything but very basic ACOL you and your partner both require the same printed convention card available for perusal by your opponents. The easiest way to achieve this is to download a card from the EBU by clicking  HERE  You can then modify it to your own system. If you are unable to download one for any reason there are also now some blank convention cards in the cupboard in the playing room.

Newbury Bridge Club Charity 2017

At the AGM held on Monday 5th December 2016, those present voted on the charity to be supported by the club in 2017.
The voting between the two charities was extremely close - only 2 votes separated them. As a consequence, the committee have decided to support one this year, and the other the following year.
The charity for 2017 will therefore be The Rosemary Appeal, and the charity for 2018 will be Two Saints.
The full draft minutes of the AGM can be found in the Members' Area.

Car Park

Please note that spaces numbered 1 to 16 inclusive + Flat in the Conservative Club car park should not be used by members in the evening as they are rented out 24/7.

The Conservative Club has requested that all members leave the bar area by 11 pm

 
Subscriptions 2017

A reminder that the Club membership subscription of £ 20 is now due. Please pay to the Secretary, Nicola Foster, or theTreasurer, Cathy Medhurst, or by direct bank transfer.

Relaxed Hosted Duplicate

The Relaxed Hosted Duplicate gives more time than usual to play each hand than on an average Duplicate evening and is generally less strict. It is run with the explicit intention of encouraging newer players to make that step up from Improvers, No Fear Bridge, etc. Over the last year we have seen quite a few people take up that opportunity. We hope those who have played once or twice will continue to come and that others who have yet to try it out will give it a go.

The next Relaxed Hosted Duplicate is Tuesday 17th January. You can come with or without a partner.

Afternoon No Fear Duplicate Bridge changes to Afternoon Bridge @ Chieveley

And a very successful transition it was with 9 full tables for both of the first two sessions.

There will be duplimated boards, printouts, bridgmates and a director as per normal evening duplicate sessions. Facilities are also available to make tea & coffee, and there will therefore be  a refreshments break during the afternoon. Because we now incur "pay to play" fees to the EBU, and are awarding Master Points for this event, there will be no "help" given during play. However if time allows there will be a short discussion at the end of one or two of the more interesting/more difficult hands.

You can turn up without a partner. £2 members. £4 visitors.Thursdays 1.15 p.m. for 1.30 p.m. start.  Finish 4.30 p.m.
There is unlimited car parking at the hall

Reminder about the Conservative Club Car Park

Spaces numbered 1-16 + Flat should not be used as they are rented out 24/7. Visitors to the club hoping to use the carpark will need to contact either the Club Secretary, Nicola Foster or the Club Chairman Richard Bungey so that someone can operate the barrier for them. You must not use the car park if you are not playing bridge!

Improvers

Improvers will now meet on Friday 7 p.m. in the main room. This is ideal for those who have completed one year of Training or are of an equivalent standard. You can turn up without a partner. £2 members. £4 visitors.
We already have several club players helping out with these evenings but we would welcome others coming along too contributing to this very important integration.
