New club opening Wednesday 3rd May 2017

Dear all

I have pleasure in announcing that a new club has opened for duplicate bridge on Wednesday mornings.

We have just had our first session last on Wednesday May 3rd  and we had 6 tables which was a great number for the first session!

I hope that other members of our club and new members will come along and make this day as popular as other days we run.

The atmosphere was terrific and not as frantic as Tuesday can be at times, when we can have up to 15.5 tables. The session took me back to when I introduced Fridays for the first time 8 years ago.

I just wonder will our club go on growing in the future and playing 5 days a week now that would be good won't be opening on Saturday and Sunday though!

The hope is that other members might come on this day so that numbers can be more equal through the week and we dont have a situation where 20 tables turn up on Tuesdays.

The sessions will run through the year and Gerry McAinsh will run the club on two sessions on Wednesdays in June and July when I am away again in Madeira. Graham will run the Tuesday and Friday sessions also while I am away.

I would also like to thank Graham in running the club on my recent trips to Ireland and Cornwall. Unfortunately Fionas parents are not in the best of form recently so I may miss the odd few sessions in the distant future but hopefully not for many years!

I would aslo like to thank Sue for all her efforts behind the scenes at Semington. Sue is one large cog in what makes Semington special and I am very grateful to all the helpers that help out from time to time it is gratefully appreciated!

THE ONLY DATE I MAY not run is on June 24th as the hall may be booked out already. I will let you know via email and at the club when I know Gerald is a bit vague on this at present as soon as I know I will announce via email website and at the clubs I run.

I would like to check that I have everyones correct email. If you wouldn't mind emailing me your email address for checking only if you don't receive emails or you have changed your website at some stage.

Many thanks Dave

Bournemouth Congress 2017 November 6th to 9th

Bournemouth Congress 6th to 9th November 2017               

I am organising another bridge congress at Bournemouth on the dates above. This will include 6 sessions of bridge. 

So I will need you to fill in an application for room choice together with a cheque or cash (no bank transfers) to cover full price of the hotel and the bridge congress. Bank transfers make it very difficult when it comes to keeping a track of doing my accounts and trying to keep bridge events away from my private banking account.

The total cost for dinner bed and breakfast is as follows. This includes bridge fees, tea/coffee, prizes, bucks fizz reception, wine or orange juice on the final evening at Dinner. There will be no added extras. There are supplements for sea views and for single rooms in a double room. There are more sea view rooms available this time so get in quickly if you would like one but these are still limited in number.

 A standard ‘single’ in a single room £200 only two available.

A standard ‘single’ in a double room £235.

A standard double for two people £380.

A standard twin for two people £380

A single in a double room with sea view £280. 

A double sea view room for two people £425.

 I will start taking cheques or cash for the full amount from Tuesday 21st March. I will only cash the cheques 6 weeks before we go. I have already made a large deposit to secure the rooms. All payments are due before 30th July 2017 please so I can secure the rooms.

 

     Please indicate below what room you require and the names of people interested.

Please include a cheque or cash for ………….. made payable to Semington Bridge Club by July 31st so that I can reserve the room you require.

These cheques will be paid into my account 6 weeks before we go so that I can pay with one single payment from me to the hotel.

Please send any payments with the type of room required to

Dave Latchem 1, Priddy Close Frome

 Somerset BA11 2XZ or pay me at the club.

Cheques will not be cashed until 6 weeks before we go to Bournemouth. Please take out your own insurance. No refunds can be given after the cheque for the hotel is cashed unless I can find a replacement.
