Thorpe Bay Bridge Club has had a very exciting year !
Our wonderful Social Team headed up by Wendy Waterman deserve much kudos for the work they have done and continue to do, putting together the socials takes some doing - Wendy, together with Chris Parmenter, also did all of the organising for the Play with an Expert which was a great success and if you haven't already noticed, the back room has been completely spruced up cleared of items dating as far back as 1966 and generally given a whole new lease of life, although we're all still wondering about the dead pheasant !
Some excellent baking by our almost now semi-professional Sarah Street whose gorgeous cakes were so tasty and complimented by the delightful biscuits from Riva - well done ladies
We've had some terrific team wins coupled with the odd humiliation, but hey ho, we carry on regardless !
Danny has obviously been the Superman of the club overseeing all aspects but most of all, calming the waters
A shout out about the wonders of bridge from Jeremy Clarkson, strange but true
Obviously it wouldn't be bridge if we didn't have a few tears and tantrums along the way coupled with a smidgen of self-doubt and confusion
GDPR came along to torment us but we met the challenge head on and thanks in no small part to Dennis Wilson the club can now boast to having an absolute State of the Art system which, we believe, you could run a small country with but we'll stick to running the club
There have been a couple of times when losing was so bad we've all just wanted to run away and hide, but we came back we've celebrated several holidays throughout the course of the yearand look forward to celebrating them again next year, we have to also give a very special mention to Audrey Quinton, whose drawings featured on this website have elevated our club website to a 'must see' and those same drawings are now hanging in the club room to encourage a more positive and relaxed vibe
Our competitions have been well attended and we're hoping that some of the changes we've made for 2019 will see an even bigger turnout
The club has raised a considerable amount for charity this year which we're all very proud of
All in all - 2018 has been an excellent year for the club - although we have to of course send our thoughts and best
wishes to those of you who have suffered the loss of friends and loved ones - you are in our thoughts.
Winners, losers, players, friends, experts, learners and even arch enemies, our support staff and our committee members
We wish you all
