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.

Final Tuesday Ladder Table now in Competition Tables 2017. New: See draws for RTH Teams and RTH Rubber on right side of screen
Tuesday Ladder Corrected

Please note the original Final Tuesday Ladder was scored incorrectly as only the best nine results were counted whereas since the most recent change of rules all results should contribute to the average. Also only those pairs playing at least nine times are included in the final table. The table is now correct. The change does not affect the winners but it does affect some places.

The Tommy Freeman Individual Championship Rose Bowl

This competition which takes place on the 4th Tuesday in the month is open to all pairs whether or not they are taking part in the Individual Championship. So if you wish you can play with the same partner(s)
( in the latter case all your results will count in the Master Points table but only the first result with the same partner will count in the Individual.)

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 Thursday 18th January.  You can come with or without a partner.

ABC - Afternoon Bridge @ Chieveley - Chieveley Village Hall

If you'd like to play Bridge in the afternoon why not try Afternoon Bridge @ Chieveley. There will be duplimated boards, printouts, bridgemates and a director as per normal evening duplicate sessions.  Because we are now 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. Location: Chieveley village hall, High street, Chieveley RG20 8 TE (No subject)

 

 

Evening Bridge at Chieveley

Friday 7 p.m. at Chieveley. (see Afternoon Bridge at Chieveley for directions) 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.
 

Rubber Bridge

Monday evenings  7:00 – 10:00 pm

Bridge doesn't have to be so serious! Come with a partner and play Rubber Bridge. It's fun and you can experiment without serious consequences. What's more there are prizes! If you've only played Duplicate it's easy to pick up.
Cost: £2 per session for members. £4 for visitors.

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!
