Convention Cards

A reminder from the  directors: 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.

1st December 2018. Newbury retained the Simmons Cup  (an annual competition between Newbury and Basingstoke Bridge Clubs) beating Basingstoke by 16 Imps. The match was played at Chieveley and was played in good spirits and friendly competition.

Newbury successfully defended the trophy losing the first half 29-73 and winning the second half 112-52. Final score Newbury 141 Basingstoke 125. Newbury win by 16 Imps. Quite an amazing turn around.

The successful team was: Eleanor Rice & John Foster, Sula Turpin & Brian Medhurst, Sue & Alan Oliver, Evelyn Archer & David Richardson, Eileen & David Barratt, Madeline Lawson & Mac Nurmohamed, Brenda & Frans Vas Nunes, Ann McMahon & Keith Terrell

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.

ABC - Afternoon Bridge @ Chieveley - Chieveley Village Hall

This will usually be at the Conservative Club but there are a few dates when it will be at Chieveley. (see Calendar)

 

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 the Club Chairman David Barratt so that someone can operate the barrier for them. You must not use the car park if you are not playing bridge!
