The Oxford Bridge Festival - 4-7 September 2017

From 4th to 7th September 2017, Oxfordshire Bridge Association (OBA) will be running a BRIDGE FESTIVAL at St Hugh’s College in Oxford.  It will be a very sociable event with a mixture of play, teaching and social fun. 

On two of the days we will go to locations in the centre of Oxford for our session reviews and on Wednesday the cafe bridge will be up and down The High. OBA is keen to attract non-members as well to the events so please spread the word to other organisations and display the publicity poster. Please click here for the poster.

Car Parking -Update 17th June 2017

We have received complaints from the village about parking, especially on the playing field, which some members have been using regularly in recent weeks. A reminder that the bridge club is only entitled to use the main or overflow car park, please avoid parking on the village playing field.

To use the available space most effectively, please park in as orderly way as possible and as requested previously for Wednesdays, we ask that Section B and No Fear players double-park on the right  (viewed from the gate end/entrance) of the main car park. It almost goes without saying that ride-sharing would help on any evening, especially Wednesdays.

Abingdon Cafe Bridge 19th October 2017

This event is held at 5 venues in Abingdon starting at 10am. Please see the poster for further information and registration.

These short lessons are held each Tuesday (1.30-2.00) repeated on Thursday (1.15-1.45) to allow attendees to play in the pairs session that starts at 2.00.

If there is a topic you would like a lesson on, please contact Francis Glassborow.

No OBA teams on the 5th Fridays (which are listed in the printed calendar).

To confirm a previous message on the Web News, there are no more OBA teams on the 5th Fridays of the month (June, September and December). There will be the usual pairs and all are welcome.
