Upcoming Junior Events
Upcoming Junior Events

We, in Oxfordshire, are running an increasing number of exciting junior events over the coming year. There are the regular Sunday afternoon sessions at OJBC during term time, as well as the lunchtime school clubs, and the 'one off's' are listed here.

1. January 2nd 2019. A full day of learning and competition in Henleys only Grade 1 listed building. Most importantly, it has square tables, 100 chairs and a pizza cafe 100 yds away £10 inc. pizza from 10-4.30p.m.

2. February 3rd. The annual OJBC competition in Oxford £5 from 2.00-5.00.p.m.

3. February 10th. A further day in Henley at Cornerstones from either 1.30-4.30 or 10.30-4.30, bringing your own packed lunch. The timing is TBC

4. March 3rd. The annual OBA competition at Roke, which again we hope to run as teaching in the morning followed by the EBED minibridge Sims/Bridge competition in the afternoon. In 2018, this doubled up as an Oxford Times Cup heat.

5. April 6th/7th The Wessex weekend at Cheltenham. The amazing cooperation from both Cheltenham BC and the Ladies College, enables us to offer this at very affordable rates, and is an amazing experience for the youngsters. £65 residential from 9.00.a.m. on Saturday, until 5.00.p.m. on Sunday. It is also a training weekend for both the England U21and U16 squads, so there are some very good and adventurous young players. The late night speedball is always fun.

For OJBC events contact Holly Kilpatrick, and for the others contact Joan Bennett 01491 579795 (or 07548 782 538 if you are lucky!) joanmbennett@hotmail.co.uk

Bring your children/grandchildren. Both you and they will enjoy it, and you will find it VERY DIFFERENT from a normal club session. Alternatively, abandon them and enjoy the free time in Henley.

Christmas Youth Events December 2018
Christmas Youth Events December 2018

On 9th December OJBC held its Xmas competition, where the children played for almost 2 hours, mostly some old sims boards which they love. There were 4 tables (3 bridge and 1 minibridge) of keen youngsters who are pictured here. First prize was won by twins Ana and Maia. It was organised, as usual, by Holly Kilpatrick. This was followed by excellent food, apparently devoured by locusts, and prizegiving.

On 4th December, Nettlebed School held its Xmas competition over 2 hours. 4 tables of children were rewarded by excellent cake made by Gillian Lonsdale, a lady of many talents, where a bridge club has run continuously for 10 years..

Abingdon Cafe Bridge Results October 2018
Abingdon Cafe Bridge Results October 2018

This event took place in wonderful autumn weather, with 60 pairs taking part, and bridge played at five venues. The base for start and finish was Cosener's House (pictured), which provided a lovely lunch to those who 'landed there', although report suggested that everyone enjoyed their lunches. The overall winners were Howard Arnes and Bridget Watson. Additional NS winners were Joe Eskinaz & Alexis Cochrane, with EW won by Peter & Suzanne Litchfield. Over £1,300 was raised for Flexicare which provides help for the whole family where there is a member with a disability. It was run, as usual, by Kevin and Ruth Carter, although this year, Ruth retired her bicyle.
