43 hardy Bridge players made their way to the not so sunny South Coast on Good Friday to take part in our 6th Regis in Bournemouth event. The Bridge was entertaining and I thank the BBA for providing pre dealt hands for the three evening sessions. The weather relented enough to allow us to escape the hotel during the day to explore the sights and sounds of Bournemouth and see how the other half lives at Sandbanks!
The results for the 5 sessions can be viewed on the Regis in Bournemouth website which can be accessed by clicking on this news item
Overall winners for the prize events were Peter and Judi Malpass closely followed by Stephen and Penny Bligh. An entertaining weekend was rounded off by a challenging quiz set by Paul Kilduff. We're looking to book next year for 26th April 2019 by which time Britain will have exited the European Union. See you all there.
These events took place on 12th December. Congratulations to all the hardy souls who braved a snowy night to support the events. Although numbers were down, the competition was hard fought in both events. Congratulations to Brian Abbot and John Naylor who won the main event and Stephen and Penny Bligh who went one better this year to win the plate.
This article is designed to let members know of a service provided by our former chairman Peter Pratt, ably assisted by Lesley Howard. Peter currently runs a morning Bridge Group two days a week, Monday for beginners and Wednesday for improvers. Both groups meet at Dunstable Town Bowling Club, Bullpond Lane, Dunstable, LU6 3BL. Parking is limited but you can park on Hawthorne Close if the car park is full. The groups provide less experienced players with a safe opportunity to develop their skills with the objective of readying players for the more competitive Club atmosphere. Anyone interested in going along themselves or introducing a relative or close friend to the game can speak to either Peter (Telephone 01582 664485), Lesley or myself for further information
