17th November

On Monday nine full tables played a single winner Mitchell movement.   After quite a tussle, Brian Mawby & David Reed came first with 62.80. Maintaining their consistent form, Adrian Williams & Don Prowse came second with 61.90. Malcolm Melrose & Maxwell Kynoch were third with 57.74; Chris Cooper & Wendy Crees were fourth with 56.55; Peter & Vera Iredale were fifth with 55.65; and Helen Foster & Geoff Bennett came sixth with 54.76. The hands were capricious causing wide varieties of contract and success. Out of 27 boards, each played eight times, eight produced eight different results, and nine produced seven different results. No one, however, would play any contract on Board 17, which was passed out eight times, a very rare event!

On Tuesday Afternoon of last week the unusual pairing of Brian Mawby & Edwige Quick won by a clear 3% with 66.67. Frank Grace & Isobel Ross followed with 63.49. Alan Page & John Chard were third with 58.33; Don Prowse & Brenda Berger were fourth with 53.70; Cynthia Martin & Malcolm Fawcett were fifth with 52.38; and Barrie & Lynne Bemand were sixth with 51.98.

On Thursday evening five full tables played a Howell movement.  Richard & Rhona Holland just kept ahead of Janet O'Connor & Don Prowse with 57.81 and 57.29 respectively. Brian Mawby & David Reed were third with 55.21 and Janet Stuchbury & Zena Hutchinson were fourth with 54.69. Zena and Janet retain their lead in the Champagne Handicap, but we’re not half way through the series yet!

On Wednesday morning twenty one players practiced opening and bidding on a mixture of weak and strong unbalanced hands. This week it's competing with a 1NT opening.

On Monday morning nine players practiced using transfers for weak take out, next week it's the strong stuff!

Monday Evening
Monday Evening

Monday Evening is a duplicate pairs evening. We aim to start play at 19.00, so please arrive a few minutes before so that the TD can count the tables, choose and initiate a suitable movement. We don't start a new round after 22.00, so the evening generally finishes around 22.15. The event takes place on all Mondays EXCEPT BANK HOLIDAYS, and for a generally two week break around Christmas and the New Year.

The evening takes place in the Club Room at the Dunchurch Village Hall. The Club Room was newly refurbished in October 2011, contains a kitchenette, and has its own adjacent toilet facilities. The entrance to the Club Room is at the far end of the complex. It is a porch like door with carriage lights on either side. There is well lit off street parking for over 70 cars.

There is a short break for coffee, tea and biscuits during the evening.

Boards are prepared using a duplimate machine. Scoring is done at the table using BridgeTabs, a popular and easy to use colour touch screen device. There is a rolling display of the position throughout the session. Results are distributed with integrated hand records by e-mail to the players. Results are also loaded to the web site, available to members, together with some statistical analysis in the "competitions" section.

There is a host available to play with single players. Visitors are welcome.The bridge is managed by a qualified TD. There is an arrangement in place with an external referee to handle any appeals.

The club is affiliated to the English Bridge Union. Players are permitted to use agreements defined as Level 3 in the EBU Regulations (the "Orange" Book). EBU Master Points are awarded to qualifying players.

We are proud of the pleasant atmosphere at the session. All players are expected to support their partner, and to treat their opponents with courtesy. That's what makes an enjoyable evening for everyone.

Please see the Fees section for table money.
