Welcome to Ringwood Bridge Club
CLUB NEWS

At present we have 12 players interested in bridge tomorow night, Wednesday 18th, and the Club will be open from 19.00

The Marjorie Mound Trophy was won by Delphine & Haydn Anderson with a marvellous 70%. David Mann and Margaret Mason won the scratch competition. Our President Iris Teather presented the Trophy and prizes after a pleasant day's bridge and a very tasty lunch. Photographs will appear in the gallery later. It was a delight to see newer members come through the ranks and two other pairs of Improvers also performed well. A very good day all round.

The AGM will be at 12.00 on 30th April at the Grassmoor Community Centre. You are urged to attend the AGM to make important decisions regarding the future of the Club. The AGM will be followed by free Bridge with an anticipated 13.30 start. One item will be seeing how much interest there is for playing Wednesday afternoons. We will be discussing with members and others over the next few weeks.

An important message for members is posted in the Chairman's remarks.

Sessions are open to members and none members alike ,so if you know of anyone who plays socially and would like to try duplicate in a friendly atmosphere get them to come along.

Contact Chris 01623 230752 or rosieandchris@tiscali.co.uk. Chris will also try to find you a Regular Partner if you are currently unattached.

Chairman's Remarks

 

After careful consideration the Committee have come to the decision that, unfortunately, we will  discontinue Wednesday night sessions after our next AGM.  Numbers have shown no sign of improving for some time now with the exception of one or two special events. Our plan is therefore to hold occasional special sessions on Wednesdays rather than regular club sessions. There may also be an opportunity to change the session to a Wednesday afternoon if there is sufficient interest. 

Should there be a significant change in numbers before the AGM we can review the decision at that point.  

We are grateful for those members, old and new, who have continued to support Wednesday evening sessions and trust that everyone will continue to enjoy their bridge on a Monday afternoon and/or Tuesday evening.

We are looking into the possibility of playing Wednesday afternoons instead of evenings. If you are interested please let one of the committee know. 

 

PRESIDENT'S TROPHY
PRESIDENT'S TROPHY

Tuesday 3rd October saw the second annual competition for the President's Trophy. Congratulations to  Phil Thomas and Steve Mulligan who were convincing winners of the trophy. Although numbers were slightly disappointing it was good to see several pairs from other clubs which always adds interest to the competition.

Thanks to Lyndon for running the event and to Susan and  Francine for helping out with the organisation.

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.
