Welcome to Ringwood Bridge Club
CLUB NEWS

The Club will be open as usual on Bank Holiday Monday. Lesson at 1000 and Duplicate at 1.30. However we will review bank holiday opening next month and if we continue with low numbers we may not open on future bank holidays.

We are repeating Cafe Bridge this year. This event is both fun and publicises the club.  Hoping for better weather we are arranging it for July 8th by which time the sun will surely be shining. If you would like to attend but are likely to have difficulty moving between cafes please let Dave or Clive know and we will make the necessary arrangements. 

CLUB SESSION TIMES

Club Telephone Number 07504 749948. Call TD on the night to advise late delays etc..

 

.No Fear friendly duplicate Sessions

No Fear sessions  now take place  every Tuesday evening. Sessions are open to members and none members alike ,so if you know of anyone who who plays socially and would like to try duplicate in a friendly atmosphere get them to come along. A partner is always available. Just turn up. Also an ideal opportunity to test out ideas from lessons, changes to bidding systems and other ways of playing contracts.

On May 16th there will be an intermediate discussion for 45 minutes(starting at 18:05) about various ways to improve and expand your bidding and hopefully your play as an addition to Dave's Monday morning bridge lessons.This week we will look at signals and discards.

 

Ringwood Bridge Club is an EBU affiliated club operating in Grassmoor, Chesterfield. We are complemented by Chesterfield Bridge Club and the U3A. Together we seek to provide and promote bridge in Chesterfield.

Session times and links to other clubs in the area may be found in the left panels on this page.

Members are requested to be in their places AT LEAST 10 minutes before the scheduled start of play.

Membership is £5 per year. Table Money is £3.50 for Members and £4.50 for Visitors.

 

Partner Finding

We have changed the Host system. If you know your Regular Partner is unavailable; please call or email Chris Challinor who will arrange a partner for you. A Host will be allocated to every Monday  session by prior booking. Please do not turn up "on spec" as the Host may not be available. Contact Chris 01623 230752 or rosieandchris@tiscali.co.uk. Chris will also try to find you a Regular Partner if you are currently unattached.

Learn Bridge

Our next session will be on May 15th.  How often do you hear "I just made an impossible contract thanks to the defence?" We will spend the next session trying to avoid  mistakes. why did I  make that bid and how it affects the resultant bids and then the play. 

 All club members might enjoy trying the new website http://www.nofearbridge.co.uk   15 minutes per day will improve your game

Chairman's Remarks

Our AGM is provisionally scheduled for May 8th. If   becoming a committee member has flitted through your mind at any point then now is the time to give the matter serious attention. Don't worry about the idea of standing for election at the AGM. We are always looking for new blood and new ideas on the Committee and it is unlikely that you would face a formal vote. Any member of the current committee would be pleased to discuss what it entails.

We are currently trying to make our website clearer and at the same time more informative. If anyone has any thoughts please let me know. I would also be grateful  if you let me know of  helpful bridge websites you have found. I will then provide a link for all members to access.

PRESIDENT'S TROPHY
PRESIDENT'S TROPHY

Tuesday 4th October saw the competition for the President's Trophy for the first time at Walton Golf Club. An event much publicised and anticipated within the club.

MARJORIE MOUND TROPHY
MARJORIE MOUND TROPHY

THE inaugural competition for the Marjorie Mound Trophy was played on Tuesday 3rd May at Walton Golf Club. This competition, both greatly anticipated and attended, saw 15 1/2 tables competing throughout the day in a friendly and enjoyable atmosphere. The eventual winners were Lyndon & Susan Davies who were presented with the trophy together with a pair of cut glass wine glasses. A reward which Marjorie would heartily have approved of.

North Derbyshire Teams of Eight

The final week of the league season saw a great finale with all three teams at home...and all acheiving success in their different ways. North Derbyshire A lost 8-12 in a closely fought match against Ripley B but managed sufficient points to win Division 2 - by a solitary point! The B team had an excellent result beating Derby C 19-1, only Derby's second defeat of the season. Unfortunately inconsistent results during the season meant that the win was not enough to avoid relegation. The C team finished the season with another win; 13-7 against British Rail to finish top of their division. This was a particularly notable success as several players werre experiencing their first taste of competitive teams.

Thank you to all those who have played and others who have helped behing the scenes. Special thanks should go to the team captains; Graham, Liz, Andy and those who deputised when they were away.

Putting out 3 teams has not always been easy this season but we have had great support and many pairs  contributed to the teams promotional positions.Now is the time to let us know if you want to play in next seasons competitions.

If you are in any doubt, speak to any of the members who have played this year to discover how enjoyable team play can be.

 

 

 

Future Events
