What's happening

This Autumn term we have been told to expect long traffic queues into Oxford from the North.  As the majority of our teachers and many of our students come from this direction we have decided not to run formal courses this term.  We are aiming to put together regular drop in sessions for learners at all levels which will begin in October. We will also run taster sessions for those who wish to begin bridge with the aim of starting a new 30 week course in January.  If you are interested in joining a taster session please email me at learnbridge@aol.com to let me know.

We are also waiting to hear whether Oxford Bridge Club will close for refurbishment during the course of this year.  As soon as we know of their plans we will give you an update.

PLAY DUPLICATE WITH OBL

We run Monday evening friendly bridge jointly with the
Oxford Bridge Club 7 - 9.30pm

This is a relaxed and friendly weekly duplicate. Students of OBL members of OBC,  and visitors are welcome.  This is a practice duplicate for people wishing to improve their bridge or try out something new.
The table money is £4 (£6 for visitors).  No need to come with a partner.

There are also Beginners Tables sessions especially for our Bridge for All students
(NOTE - this is a practice session, not a lesson.)

On Thursday mornings we run supervised Learn and Play duplicate bridge at the Oxford Bridge Club, from 10 am to 12 pm. 

This weekly session is open to all improvers who know basic Acol and can play at a reasonable speed.
The event is run as a normal duplicate but the director can be called for advice at any time, particularly with hands that are difficult to bid.
Table money is £5 and there is a host system, so you don't need to come with a partner.

Hosts for Monday evenings
OBL is looking for hosts for Monday evening sessions.  We have not had hosts on Monday evenings before and we would like to be able to free up the supervisor to help you with your bridge.
 If you are interested please get in touch.  In the meantime, here is something that one of our long time hosts wrote recently.
 
 
I have been a host now for I guess about 3 years, I have never regretted doing it.
 
I remember the times when I wished I was able to go to Oxford Bridge Club and be guaranteed a game with someone I didn't know, very scary but good for your confidence. Think how grateful people are for this facility.  Oxford Bridge Learning are grateful too as it helps encourage their students.
 
O.K. if you have to get there and you're not needed you just go home and have your coffee at home instead.
 
It's also a time to repay a little of what we have gained from OBL and the hours of enjoyment we will get from bridge for rest of our lives.
I have not been asked to write this but I would like to encourage people to help as a way of saying 'thank you' and still enjoying yourself encouraging others.
