May '17 : There are various developments in the pipeline, such as dates for Teams, improvers classes, etc .. but most of the planning (and announcement) of these are by necessity 'on hold', whilst we achieve the small matter of (unexpectedly) moving house
 frown!
.. and then taking our (pre-booked) holiday cool


* New landline number, now installed = 01386 700583 *

         ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

        17 Teams, 19th August '16 - 8 for the Snowdon Salver, and 9 for the Novice Plate .. congratulations to all who did well, comiserations to the less lucky, but it was mainly about gaining experience !
The Novice Plate involved the normal tie-break method, i.e. the match between the two teams involved.
2017 : these events are liable to be on another summer date this year as well.

Origins and Policy ..... !
Origins and Policy ..... !

The North Cotswolds Bridge Club started in 1985, primarily to provide local learning and practice sessions - but always aspiring to keep its friendly, relaxed and sociable environment. The host / teacher / proprietor (Alan Lamb) still feels relatively young and active, despite those dates (half my entire life now!). The Club has been 'full-time' since 1990, with 1, 2 or 3 sessions per day (Tuesdays-Fridays, except for holidays), most with an 'open' policy (no need to book in advance). 'Mixed ability' is a key description, and improvers are encouraged to any session that they can 'keep up' with, enjoy, benefit from, and feel comfortable at. More experienced players are welcome, provided that they themselves welcome - and encourage - improvers !
Please note (May 2013) : after prolonged difficulties with the new EBU universal membership scheme, this Club has now disaffiliated. This does not affect the duplicate games at all, there's just no master points awarded for them !
