Tuesday Standbys

A host system runs on Tuesday evenings whereby if you arrive at the club without a partner not later than 7 p.m. then the "stand by" for that evening will be called in to play with you. 

 
Printer Ink Bargain!!

Having been forced to change the Club printer we have been left with a stock of printer ink which unfortunately is not suitable for the replacement.
If anyone has an HP Printer using 364 cartridges and is interested having the stock in exchange for a donation to Club funds please contact John Whiteman.
Cartridges are mostly black XL plus a few of the three colour range, also XL. These are HP compatible supplied by 7dayshop.

If you do not have a partner Harry and Adrienne may be able to arrange one for you - if you give them a few days notice.  Visitors are very welcome.

League success for Geoff and Robin

Robin reports: Played the final game of the season on April 22nd; we needed to win 15-5 (24 Imps +), against Norman Jones' Wolverhampton team, which is not easy, to overtake Paul Hackett.  
We were 30 imps up at half time (home ground advantage, we played chez nous), but had a better second half and finished +76 Imps.  Well done Geoff & Robin.

 

EBU change to the magazine, English Bridge.

Members will have noticed the change to the EBU magazine. The new style EBU magazine, English Bridge, can be read on line if you do not receive a paper copy.  There is also an extra section for County news only available on-line.

EBU change to Announcing and Alerting

On August 1st 2013 changes were made to the EBU Announcing and Alerting rules.  There is a copy of the new rules on the club notice board.  There is also a notice on the board regarding permitted agreements (level 4 amplified) that  are now the SBC standard.

County News

Mixed/Flitch Pairs

This competition takes place at Wolverhampton on Wednesday 10th June at 7 for 7:15.  Entry fee £8 per pair. Entries to Kath Adams

No Fear Pairs - 9th July

Following the success of the No Fear Pairs last year another such event is to take place on Thursday 9th July, 10:30 for 11 a.m.  The organiser is a wonderful cook so you are assured of not only good bridge but a great lunch too!

Sim Pairs - 19th August

Would Wednesday afternoon players like to take part in the County Sim Pairs event this year.  Might take a bit of organising as the main event is in the evening so players might have to sign the "Official Secrets Act" not to disclose the hands before the evening!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ladies' and Men's Pairs

These competitions took place at Wolverhampton on Thursday 14th May.  Four Stafford players took part with varying success!  Robin and Geoff won the men's pairs
