Children in Need Sim Pairs - November

Geoff Thomas
Geoff Thomas

The late Geoff Thomas made the club a generous donation in his will.  This has been used to purchase a trophy for the winners of the 65 club competition and Adrienne has had the cup engraved with the names of the past winners.

Geoff played primarily at Wolverhampton but also at Stafford on Wednesday afternoons, with Peter Tallon, Audrey Clarke, Sylvia Hilton, Polly Green and Peggie McCombie.  Geoff also played in the SSCBA league and came occasionally to the Stafford American Suppers.

Partners for afternoon sessions

Should you require a partener for either Monday or Wednesday afternoon please seek Sam`s assistance by phone, 01785 818682, mobile 07931702776, text or email.

How can you help?

It would be much appreciated if everyone could help in small ways at the start (getting scorecards etc out) and at the end of sessions (loading the dishwasher, checking the windows are closed and the room is tidy) don't leave the director to do everything!

If you would like to try your hand at scoring or directing please contact Terry Maltby or Michael Metcalf, more volunteers for these duties are always needed.

Please Arrive 15 minutes before play

At all club sessions please arrive at least 15 minutes before play is due to start, 6:45 for 7 p.m. start, 7 for 7:15 start, 1:15 for 1:30 start. If you are running late please ring the club, 01785 246611, to let the scorer know you are on your way so that they can factor you in when setting up the movement and scoring systems.

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.

Weekend Away at Quedgeley 2015
Little Thatch Inn

Away weekend 10th – 13th April 2015 at The Little Thatch Inn, Quedgeley

A group of 28 (22 of whom were bridge players) enjoyed a bridge weekend just outside Gloucester.  The weather was kind so the day time was largely spent visiting the various local tourist attractions before sitting down to bridge in the evening.

After two very successful trips to Lytham St Annes a change of scene was suggested.  Anne Smith undertook the onerous task of finding a venue that satisfied the necessary criteria, much easier said than done, and came up with an old coaching Inn, part of which dated back to the 13th century, just outside Gloucester.  Sylvia organised the accommodation/booking.  David, having put in a great deal of preparation work, ran the very successful bridge sessions on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings.  

Where to go next year - any suggestions?! It is not easy to find somewhere that "ticks all the boxes" so going back to Quedgeley for a second year would save much research.  Have your say - talk to a committee member.
