  Aylsham Bridge Club

Sadly, due to lack of members and support, the Aylsham & District Bridge Club formally closed on 12th May. 

There was a County pairs event sheduled to play at their club on Friday July 14th.  The N&N will now run an Open Pairs on this Friday - which means we'll be running an Open Pairs on each Friday evening during the summer months.

  Garden Cities Trophy

On 6th May, the team the N&N team (representing Norfolk) of Langridge & Mallon; Tom & Charles Melvin; Hill & la Chapelle; Darby & Ip played at Peterborough and finished 2nd out of 9 counties, thus qualifying for the National Finals in Solihull on June 24th.  Tom & Charles were the top pair of all counties based on Ximps - well done!

  The Friendly Friday Club
The Friendly Friday Club

 

The Friendly Friday Club (FFC) meets on the 2nd Friday of each month.

It runs in parallel with the Norfolk & Norwich's normal Friday program at the Willow Centre.

The FFC is open to players of all standards who are looking for a friendly game of bridge. It is suitable for graduates from Improvers Classes, players returning after a break from the game, and for players who are looking to improve their confidence and understanding of the game.

If you think you would like to attend the next session  please email James Tullett: jft66@me.com

  AGM & Hunt Trophy

The 70th Annual General Meeting of the Club will be held at the Willow Centre on Friday 5th May at 6.30. 

Our President, Margaret Motch, invites all members to join her for light refreshment from 6.15 onwards.

A Pairs competition for the Hunt Trophy will follow the AGM. Unlike last year, normal systems will be allowed.

  Reserves for the League

League teams are sometimes in need of a reserve, but the captains are unsure of who they can ask to play.  To assist in this, we are now putting on the websiteunderneath where the teams are listed, those players who are prepared to be a reserve. 

If you are not registered in a specific team and you would be prepared to play as a reserve, would you please email Stuart (eaton42a@hotmail.com) with your preferred phone number and your details will be listed.

 

  Find a Partner

Tom Melvin, our secretary, is running the Find a Partner service.  If you are in need of a partner, please send him an email: t.m.melvin@uea.ac.uk.

Jill's Farewell, 11 November 2016

Wishing Jill many happy years around the bridge tables and golf courses of Suffolk.

These are a few pictures from our club night:

     

  Chairman

Our Chairman, Jill Innes will shortly be moving to their new home in Snape, in Suffolk. Realistically this is too far away for her to play at the NNBC and, for that reason, will not be able to continue as Club Chairman.

Stuart Langridge has been appointed by the committee as the interim Chairman, until the next AGM.

  Chief Tournament Director and Responsibilities

Peter Cotes has kindly agreed to be our Chief Tournament Director (07494 597772).

The Chief Tournament Director is responsible for organising the TD rota and for arranging suitable appeals committees as and when needed.

  Start time

This is a polite reminder for the benefit of ALL players that the start time is 7pm. This means that you should be seated by 6:55 to allow for the appropriate movement be planned. If you're caught in traffic, then a phone call before 6:55 would be advisable. Please do not assume that you will be permitted to play if you arrive later than 6:55!
