Alerts & Announcements

A query was raised over what should be Announced and what should be Alerted.

The EBU have published a 2 page document on this subject. This can be accessed at:

Partner Required?

If you need a partner please contact Dee Harrington on 01525 220625 or email 'harrington.bridge.dee@gmail.com'. Guest players in need of a partner should also contact Dee to see if there is a partner available as we do not operate a "host system".

Kitchen Steward

The Kitchen Steward for the day sets up for refreshments, turns on the immersion heater and checks stocks of tea, coffee, biscuits etc. At the end of Bridge, the Steward ensures the immersion heater is switched off, everything is stored away in the back cupboard and the kitchen is left clean and tidy. The next event's Kitchen Steward is always shown to the right and in the main Calendar available off the Main Menu to the left. Please add your name to the list which is available in the kitchen. Thank you.

Friday Improvers

Tring Bowls Bridge Club operate a "Friday Improvers" section. These duplicate bridge sessions run each Friday morning from 09:30 to 12:15.

The sessions are aimed at players who have undertaken basic Bridge training and wish to improve their skills through assisted play with some instruction in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Partners are not necessary as a host system exists.

Refreshments are provided plus help / advice from more experienced players.

For more information please contact Pete Rowling (07970 301233) p_rowling@sky.com or Derek Connelly by email at derekconnelly@btinternet.com or phone (01442 890322).
