CYMBELINE WAY

We had previously announced that our club was going to move its bridge activities on a Friday and Saturday to BEC Cymbeline Way, Bilton.  The announcement was made following detailed discussions with a representative of the BEC Office.

Since then the leadership of the church have expressed a view that they wished to review our request in more detail because they had not fully appreciated the size of the commitment at the time our request was made because their representative had not made it clear in his communication with them of the frequency and how long the booking was for. He had given them the impression it was a one off arrangement.  As a result and because he was not sure how long it would take to resolve the issue he had suggested we look for alternative locations to guard against the possibility of our application being rejected.

This decision came as a great shock and disappointment to those involved in the discussions. 

Our Saturday training sessions and Friday afternoon session will therefore continue to be held at Townsend Memorial Hall.

CHILDREN IN NEED SIM PAIRS

We will be playing in the Children in Need SIM Pairs, on the following TWO dates:

 

Friday 10th November, 2017  and

Tuesday 14th November 2017

 

On both occasions, previous weeks winners will NOT have a free week, nor will the TD or any Host as this is a Charity Event.  The winners at these two events will ALSO not be eligible to claim a free week the next time.

CHARITY BRIDGE DRIVE - EATHORPE

A charity bridge drive in aid of Costa Rica and Nicaragua local communities is being held at Eathorpe Village Hall, Eathorpe on Wednesday 25th October from 10.30am to 4pm.  Cost is £14.50pp to include refreshments and lunch.  If you would like to secure a table or enter as a couple please send a cheque to Miss P Lazenby, Bridlington Grange, Main Street, Thurlaston, CV23 9JS.

RUGBY PAIRS LEAGUE 2017/2018

Click on heading to view results of the 2nd session held on Monday 9th October at 19:00 hrs in the Concert Room, Ex-Servicemen's Club, Hillmorton.  Further dates as follows:  13th November, 11th December and 8th January 2018.

HOSTING

We are trialling a new system whereby all members who attend a session on a regular basis have been included in a 'host rota list' which will be effective from the beginning of September.  The onus will be on each member to note their hosting dates and to make every effort to arrange a swap if they are unable to fulfil their host duty.  If you are unable to arrange a swap please advise Maria Smyth who will update the website calendar to display 'volunteer host required'. 

Members who do not wish to host, and their name appears on the rota list, please contact Liz Edwards or Maria and your name will be removed. 

Please click on heading to view the Rota.

 

SEARCH FOR PREMISES - UPDATE

The club is pleased to announce that following on from an approach made to Newbold Rugby Union Football Club, their Committee have met and in principle have agreed to discussions commencing to consider the possibility of their club premise being the permanent home of Rugby Bridge Club.

 

You will be kept  informed of how the talks progress.
