More bridge wisdom

Bridge is a great comfort in old age. It also helps you get there faster.


South: Alert!          

East:   What does that mean?

South: I am required to further misdescribe my hand.


Card sense is the ability to do the right thing at the wrong time or the wrong thing at the right time.


Regardless of what sadistic impulses we may harbour good bridge means helping partner avoid mistakes.


I'd like a review of the bidding with all the original inflections.



Things people say

It's not enough to win the tricks that belong to you. Try also for some that belong to your opponents. (Alfred Scheinwold)

If 3NT is a viable option - then bid it. (Paul Soloway)

If you have the slightest touch of Masochism you'll love this game. (Frank Perkins)

Getting old

Learn from the mistakes of others. You won't live long enough to make them all for yourself. (Alfred Steinwold)

I favour light opening bids. At my age you can never be sure the bidding will get round to you again. (Owwald Jacoby)

The two golden rules

1.  Be kind to others, partner, opponents and,especially the director.

2.  Keep the kettles filled..

General Information
Upcoming buffet eal

There seems to be little appetite for a buffet on  22nd May. Consequently we are postponing it until 14th June which is a Wednesday. We need a minimum of 20 people to be able to put this on for £5 a head. Otherwise we will have to cancel. The AGM will still take place on the 22nd of May and thestart time for the afternoon will be 1.15 PM as usual. I hope these arrangements are satisfactory.
