Alan Lamb Benefit

84 people played at the Alan Lamb Benefit bridge afternoon on 3 November at Broadwell (76 played duplicate and 8 played Chicago). A huge thank-you needs to be given to all who helped out, to the players who took part the event and to those who gave such generous donations of cakes, scones and raffle prizes. It was a great afternoon and achieved a tremendous result for a very worthwhile cause!
        And here's where I can try to express my profound gratitude to all the organisers, players, and donors, for the magnificent sum of £1,505 - it will certainly mean a more comfortable convalesence, and likely a much-needed break for David (I had no shortage of rest myself!).
        I was just sorry not to have been strong enough to attend the event ( I'm not sure I've been such a 'good cause' before ... ! )
        
Hoping to be fully back into the swing of the Club quite soon, i.e. by the New Year ...                                        ...

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. Until his health drama of 2017, the host / teacher / proprietor (Alan Lamb) still felt relatively active, despite those dates (half my entire life!). The Club went 'full-time' in 1990, (Tuesdays-Fridays), 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 !
Note (Spring '18): 2018 is my year for convalesence and recovery. There are now just five regular sessions weekly, plenty for my stamina level, and that situation may remain so for a long time ..
