PARKING ON OUR MONDAY SESSIONS

Unfortunately parking has become a problem at our Monday afternoon session at Chalfont Community Centre.  We have therefore, again, rented the Scout Car Park which gives us plenty of extra space.  This can be reached by going into the entrance (over the little bridge) and turning right towards the Tennis Club.  The Scouts' building is the second building along and the gates to the car park will be open.  PLEASE, IF YOU ARE FIT AND ABLE, USE THIS SPACE to allow others who visit the centre for other classes, to park their cars.  Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Marilyn Halton writes about her Team Winning Division 3 of the League of Four

Just to let you know that a team of your regular bridge players from the Monday and Thursday duplicate sessions have won Division 3 of the County League of 4.

Carol Simpson, Michael Simpson, Kathy Brisbourne and myself were promoted from Division 4 last year.  We finished top of this league at our first attempt. We were worried that the standard of the players in Division 3 looked significantly higher than the bottom league and our plan was to try and finish in the middle and survive a drop back to the bottom league this season!

We, in fact, won all 6 matches and scored 91 out of 120 points.  We even managed a win against Anders' team – I felt very intimidated playing a respected past teacher.  We now have to tackle an even higher mountain next year in Division 2. 

We enjoyed playing in players' houses rather than in Bridge Clubs and mostly in the afternoons, it is definitely more relaxing and less stressful.  The refreshments offered were very often home baked and cooked and were a delicious feast!

Marilyn

This is just a terrific win and we are so delighted   -  Tessa and the Team

Susanne Thomson

It is with great sadness that I have to report that Susanne Thomson passed away yesterday. Susanne played on a Monday afternoon regularly partnering Liz White and I have known her for 20 years. A fun loving, kind and caring person who will be greatly missed by all who knew her. 

New Courses starting in 2018
