Mega Score in President's Cup

The new President's Cup had the first session on Thursday 16th October with Steve Spence & Jon Downing posting an impressive 68.56% score closely followed by Hon. President Chris Harris & Gita Kundu on 66.40%. Everyone else was below 60%, see resuts pages for the full ranking list.

The second session will be on Thursday 20th November again with stratification and Blue Points being awarded for ranking places on the night.

The average of the percentage obtained in both sessions will determine the winners of the President's Cup. There will be prizes for the winners in A,B and C stratifications plus an ascenders prize (the best percentage increase from session 1 to session 2) [Note a pair may only win one prize].

Session 2 seating priority will be given to pairs who participated in session 1, but there may be some space for a few extra players who want a game that evening who will obviously play without standing in the President's Cup

Book Table Accepting New Items
Book Table Accepting New Items

Please remember that if you are having a Spring Clean you can donate your no longer wanted books to the Club's Book Table.  

Funds raised go towards helping to buy new equipment and Special Projects within the Club, with books eventually being recycled to local Charity Shops.


Please arrive at least 10 minutes before start time
Please arrive at least 10 minutes before start time

The TDs request that players should make every effort to arrive at the Club at least 10 minutes before the advertised start time. 

As BridgeMates are in use for nearly all sessions it is time consuming and tiresome to reset everything to ensure a prompt start if players are arriving late. This is particularly so on busy nights such as Monday and Thursday when adequate time should be allowed by players for car parking.

Complaints are received about late evening finishes and incomplete hence unfair movements which a prompt start would somewhat alleviate.

The club's mobile telephone number 07749 410 362 is always switched on about half an hour before play is due to start if you want to notify late arrival.

Players who arrive after the movement has been set up without prior notification in most cases will not get a game!!!

On Monday nights, commencing June 23rd, a self help group will take place in the training room from 7 p.m. The group will play some boards then discuss them. These sessions will not have a TD and will not be masterpointed. If there are more than 14 tables in the main session, members of the group may join the main session or play among themselves but discussion will not be possible. For details and to register interest contact Andrew Huskinson on 077901-12879 or just turn up. Partners not necessary. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE SELF HELP GROUP HAS BEEN SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

The Duplicate Sub-Committee requests that all regular partnerships should have a fully completed convention card especially if not playing an ACOL based system. This particularly includes five card major or short/better minor based variants used as a partnership agreement opening bid. An opening one level bid in a minor which can be made on 0,1 or 2 cards in the suit must now be announced under new EBU regulations.
