26th August

 

There was no bridge on Monday because of the Bank Holiday. On Tuesday of last week nine and a half tables were led by Nicky and Jim Bainbridge. David Reed and Brian Mawby came second with 64.93, and a great result for Pauline Batchelor & Laura Von Tucher, third with 63.54. Alan Page & John Chard were fourth with 59.38 and fifth place was tied between Zena Hutchinson & Val Richards and Don Prowse & Brenda Berger, both pairs scoring 56.56.

 

Congratulations to Janet O’Connor and Sue Robards winners of Division 1 in the Pairs Ladder. Don Prowse and Roy Blackmore won Division 2 of this, the 4th round, of the pairs ladder. Next round starts Sept 17th.

 

On Wednesday Morning eighteen players practised the finer points of transfers.

Capacity on Monday Evenings and Tuesday Afternoons

The number of players on Tuesday afternoons has been growing steadily for some time and is generally higher than the turn out on Monday evenings. We were close to having to turn people away.

We have been using the Sports Lounge, accessible through the changing rooms. Players are getting used to this arrangement, and some even enjoy the peace and quiet! We had some problems with the signal to the tablets to begin with, but we seem to have solved those now.

This means our capacity on Tuesday afternoons is now around fifteen tables, so you don’t have to worry about getting a space.

Mondays are also getting busier with new members, and people returning from those early summer holidays and the local and Warwickshire based leagues having finished for the summer. On the Monday before last we had to turn people away.

The Sports Lounge is used during the school term, but is available over the summer. This means that in August we will be able to expand into it. We could be able to use it until September when numbers will probably fall off slightly as the Leagues restart.

However, we recommend, especially if you are coming some distance, that you arrive at least fifteen minutes early, preferable twenty, on a Monday if you want to be sure of a game.

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.
