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.

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 29th September. You can come with or without a partner.

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!

New Improvers on Fridays

From July 8th Improvers will move to Fridays and the students from Training will be incorporated. We already have several club players helping out with their advancement but we would welcome others coming along too contributing to this very important integration.

How you can help

Improver Bridge

Improvers will now meet on Friday 7 p.m. in the main room. (see note above). 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.
 

Afternoon No Fear Duplicate Bridge

If you wish to play in the daytime there's No Fear bridge on Thursday afternoons. This is particularly suitable for beginners/improvers or if you haven't played for a while.  It is a very relaxed afternoon, aiming to instil confidence. Help with both bidding and play is available if requested.

You can turn up without a partner. £2 members. £4 visitors. 1.15 p.m. for 1.30 p.m. start.  Finish 4.00 p.m.
Discussion on how to bid and play difficult hands, after they have been played, is always available.

Car parking spaces are limited on a Thursday afternoon and are allocated on request by the No Fear Director.
Please contact  annmcmahon425@btinternet.com if you would like to be allocated a parking space.

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.
