THE ENGINEERS HAVE STILL NOT ARRIVED AT THE HALL SO I HAVE NO OPTION BUT TO CANCEL TONIGHT'S BRIDGE. I'M VERY SORRY.
I have just been informed that there is a problem with the heating at the Turpington Lane Community Centre.
The management are hoping to have this resolved some time this afternoon, but if engineers are unable to fix the problem I have no choice but to cancel our bridge session.
I will keep you informed, and will make a decision by 5pm at the latest.
CHRISTMAS DATES FOR YOUR DIARY
Our last day of bridge will be on Friday 21st December when we will also hold our Christmas party.
This will be in the usual format: you supply the nibbes and I'll bring along something for us all to drink.
There will also be bridge of course.
We reopen on THURSDAY 3rd January at Gravel Road at the usual time of 1:15, before returning to our regular Wednesday/Friday schedule.
Slams Bridge Club has been running in Bromley since 1994. It was set up with the aim of helping players new to the game, but over the years many regular players have gained experience and are well beyond novice level.
Players are expected to know the game of bridge but we don't expect, nor do we want, "Grand Masters". There are many local clubs that cater for these more experienced players. At the other end of the spectrum we don't have the resources to cater for absolute beginners. But if you know the game and can play at normal club speed (24 boards in 3 hours) you will be most welcome.
Walking into a bridge club for the first time can be intimidating - everybody else seems to know what they're doing (oh no they don't!). The atmosphere at Slams Bridge Club is friendly and welcoming, and you will soon start to feel at home.
Our membership is loyal with many players from the early years still attending on a regular basis.
Come and give us a try. If you don't have a partner our friendly host will be happy to play with you.
