Bridge Clubs of Thanet KO Competition - Saturday 6th May

Congratulations to Paul Gibbons for successfully organising, running, and directing the Bridge Clubs of Thanet KO Competition, ably assisted by Sharon Bayne.

A fun day of Bridge, and good to see over 50% of players from Bridge Clubs of Thanet, up on last year’s poor 20%. A special mention for Madeleine Cooke and Jill Lamerton, who came 6th overall by %, against a field including 2 Premier Grand Masters, 3 Grand Masters, 2 Life Masters, and a Premier National Master. Full results will be published when available.

Thank you to all who played, and a special thanks to Sharon Bayne and her delicious cup cakes.

Chicago Pairs 2017

Round 1 Pairs should contact the first named other Pair with the same letter and agree a date, time and venue to play each other in a relaxed atmosphere. Pairs with (H) next to their names are the Host Pair, but this can be revised to allow for player mobility or travel needs. Hosts are only required to have a suitable table and seating for play, and offer tea and biscuits during a comfort break.

The only play needs are 2 packs of cards and 2 score cards. Bidding boxes are not essential, but can be used if available. Any needs can be borrowed from the Club, by arrangement.

Play is as normal during club play, Vulnerability as per Scorecard, Dealer rotates Hand 1 North, Hand 2 East etc, and Scoring per Hand as normal allowing for vulnerability. Cards are shuffled and cut before each Deal. 24 hands are played, so play takes 3 hours or less

The club has been established over 25 years and over that time we have moved from The Royal Temple Yacht Club in Ramsgate to Northdown House in Cliftonville, then to Margate Football Club and we have now returned to Northdown House. The venue is large enough for all of our tables in the Red and Gold rooms, both of which are on the ground floor.  Ample car parking is also available.

The club, which is EBU registered, meets at 6.45pm on Mondays and Thursdays every week for regular pairs competitions. Our Wednesday and Friday afternoon sessions start at 1.45pm.  We hold social events including two dinners each year.
