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.

Tokens Shortage
Recently despite having 300 tokens and a membership of 180 we ran out. Would all members please ensure they do not keep more than one token. If everybody keeps to this the system will run smoothly. So please return any additional tokens you have. Many thanks in anticipation of your co-operation in this matter  Martin Osgood Chairman
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, Rubber etc. This 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 on Tuesday 17th March. You can come with or without a partner.

Improver Bridge

                 Friday  evenings      7:00-10:00 p.m.     

Practise Duplicate Bridge in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Become steadily more confident playing in any company.
A playing session of about two hours is followed by an open discussion of some of the hands to in order to improve your understanding of both bidding and card play. Cost: £2 members. £4 visitors. No partner required
