Premises Manager

The Club are looking for members to fill the above position.  If you don't feel you want to do it on your own, the Committee are very happy for members to job share.

Please do think about it and maybe ask your bridge partner if they would share the position with you.

 

Wednesday Evening Bridge

In sharp contrast with Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings, Wednesdays have become very poorly attended at the club.  This is disappointing for the (relatively few) regular Wednesday players.  It would seem that many members are under the impression that Wednesdays are the province of only the better players and that consequently they would not be welcome nor would they enjoy their bridge. We would like to dispel this misconception.

 In practice, the average NGS grading for Wednesday evenings is only marginally higher than on Mondays and Tuesdays. Wednesday evening players all play on other evenings. Wednesday evening sessions are as warm and as friendly as any of the other evenings.

If you have felt apprehensive about playing on a Wednesday evening, we would urge you to give it a try. Should anyone be playing a system with which you may be unfamiliar, (and this will be rare) they will be only too happy to explain their bids to you. Furthermore, there are a number of the club’s stronger players who would be happy to play with less experienced partners on a Wednesday.

We look forward to having more tables on a Wednesday evening. Please support us if you can.
