There is a  (seemingly) once in a lifetime chance coming up in Cheltenham, to listen to Zia Mahmood talk about the game of bridge, and to play some hands he has prepared and learn from them. It happens on Friday 8th December at Hatherley Manor Hotel and starts at 11.15; if you go visit the Cheltenham BC website ( you can find details of how to apply for tickets.   They cost £45 but that includes lunch and any profits go to a good cause.  

Dorset are holding a Multi-Teams event for the Weymouth and Hardwick Cups hosted by Dorchester Bridge Club, on Monday 4th December, commencing at 7.00pm.  This is a friendly event, with cash prizes including a ‘non-expert’ prize and teams from Somerset are welcome to enter on line at
