Friday Evening Partner Matching

Liz Greaves has offered to organise a partner matching service for Friday evening.
Any member wishing to play but without a partner can telephone or email Liz during the week and she will try to arrange pairings.

David Hurter

We regret to announce the death of David Hurter.  Though David hadn't played in recent times, longstanding members will remember him.

New Master Point Rule

The EBU had intended to introduce a new rule from 1st August 2015, whereby Master Points would only be awarded for pairs events in which all competitors are scheduled to play at least 75% of the boards, which can include sit-outs.  For more details, see http://www.ebu.co.uk/newsletters/?id=29   There have, however, been difficulties in implementation, and the change has been deferred to January 2016. 

Interesting Hands

May the force be with you.

'Bridge with Angela' 5th edition

Angela Tompson has updated her popular bridge guide for students and improvers;  this is the fifth edition following upon the success of the earlier versions. The basics are unchanged but Angela has taken the opportunity to include further conventions currently and commonly played, including Benjaminised Acol.

This book commences with the very basics of bridge and goes on to describe the essential elements of bidding. Guidance on play of the cards and defence is included followed by explanations of conventions commonly played.

 

The Price is £7.95 and can be purchased at the club bar or phone Angela on 01892 526716.
