Forthcoming Events - January and February 2019

RATS week
For the whole of the week commencing 21st January we have to vacate the Veryard Room in the evenings for the Theatrical Society to hold its big annual production. The daytime sessions on Monday and Tuesday will continue in the Veryard Room as normal but for the evening sessions, please note the following arrangements. 

On the Monday evening we will play at the Rhiwbina Recreation Club.  Please make your way beyond the tennis courts to the clubhouse.

On the Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings we will play at the Bethany Baptist Church, 89 Heol Llanishen Fach, Rhiwbina, CF14 6LF.  If you turn into the side road, Heol Uchaf, between the parade of shops, there is a car park on the left for users of the church.  Otherwise you can park in the neighbouring roads.  Roger will have a few copies of a street map if needed.

Teams of Four
The next teams of four competition will be on Tuesday 29 January starting as usual at 6.45 for 7 pm.  Please make up your own teams but if you are struggling please let one of the committee know.

Military Whist Drive
A military whist drive will be held in the main hall on Saturday 16th February, starting at 7pm.  This is intended for anybody interested in playing whist – not just club members – so please bring your friends and family.  The cost is £5 per person to include food and drink.  Please put your name on the list on the noticeboard.  Tickets are available from Chris Cleaver.

Happy New Year!
 

Tuesday Morning Bridge

The new regular Tuesday morning session has started.  It is duplicate bridge with pre-dealt hands.  The club is committed to running these sessions at least until the end of February 2019 when a decision will taken about continuing them, based on the levels of support the sessions receive from club members.  If you want to play on a Tuesday please arrive by 10.45 for a 11.00 start.  The sessions will be timed to finsh at around 1:30 pm. 

This session is in addition to the existing Monday afternoon session - not instead of it.
