Installation of New Windows and Club Closures from 20th March 2017 - Update

Work on installing the new windows at the club is going well.  However, due to the contractors being on site again the week commencing 27 March, there will be no day time bridge next week.  Further interruptions to day time bridge will be unavoidable over the following two weeks.  Please keep an eye on the website for further updates.

The evening and weekend sessions will continue to take place as normal.

Committee Meetings Minutes 10th Feb 2017

The latest minutes (Feb  2017) are posted in the members' area of the web. Select and click Members Only Area from the left hand column menu, log in then select Members Only Notices again from the left hand column menu. The date of the next committee meeting has yet to be arranged.

 

HANDICAP INDIVIDUAL

This competition should interest all those improving players. A bit like a golf handicap, your combined bridge handicaps (with that of your partner) should level the playing field. So if you have a good evening, after applying your combined handicap you should finish high in the field. Obviously, if you play with a pro you may get a better score, but your handicap will be less helpful.So you may choose someone of your own level, to benefit from their lower handicap.

To be in contention to win you need to play with at least 6 different partners and your best 6 scores (all with different partners), will count towards your final score. So, why not organise your diary to play with a few different people and compete in 2017?
