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

On September 25th we are expecting some new additions to the session so I will be starting some basic bridge until we find the standard of the newcomers. The first 3 sessions will cover the 1NT opening, Stayman and Transfers. With some basic NT play techniques. For the more experienced improvers I have prepared some more demanding NT playing techniques. Those who have been playing on Monday morning for some time and who do not need to go back to basics should try the Wednesday evening session. If any of your friends would like to start from scratch, now is the time. Please ask around. Contact Dave Ridley on nogmeg@mypostoffice.co.uk  or 01246 434789

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.
