18th December - Club Christmas Party

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.

The parties were:

Thursday 14th December Robin's lesson group got the SBC Christmas party season started. Five tables with a fun movement of 18 hands specially prepared by Robin on topics covered in the recent lessons. Pupils came away with commentaries on the hands.  A very big thank you to Robin for a great deal of hard work.  
Friday 15th December Friday night players party was a fun teams event organised by David. It all worked so well, after a message going adrift Phil and Helena saved the day to allow David's planned table movement to work perfectly! Due to the icy conditions sadly the last few boards had to be abandoned so that players could get home safely.
Tuesday 19th December The main event to which all were invited. 43 attended and so David ran a pivot teams 10 tables and that allowed both Janet and John Andrews to sit in on some of the hands.
Prizes were awarded by Michael for the winning team and the team coming second, on a point-a-boards scoring (as for the Friday party). Prizes for Benji & Digger and other miscellaneous.  Janet and her team provided a very good meal, enjoyed by all.
Wednesday 20th December The final SBC Christmas party, the Wednesday afternoon player's self catering party. Some very good food enjoyed by the 30 players, Mary Berry had had quite an influence.  A normal movement for this party but with a longer interval than usual to enjoy the spread along with a glass of wine.  Pat took pictures that will be added to the website shortly.
