The Children in Need SIMS events on 13th & 15th November raised £350 for this very worthy cause. 

*******************************

Woburn Sands Bridge Club is supporting an after school bridge club at St. Mary’s Wavendon CofE Primary School.  The programme started in the Spring term 2017 and continued until the end of the Summer term in July 2017. The programme is based on the “Starter Bridge” format, which the children have taken to enthusiastically. All the boys enjoy the bridge sessions and there is a great deal of competition to win the league. This programme will continue into the 2017/2018 academic year.

Next Bridge Monday 22nd & Wednesday 24th January WBF Charity Pairs for UNICEF
Woburn Sands Bridge Club

Woburn Sands is a friendly Bridge Club that meets at St. Mary's Church Hall, Aspley Hill in Woburn Sands MK17 8NN. The Church Hall is a spacious venue with its own car park. There are two sessions

  •  Wednesday Evenings 6.45pm for a prompt 7.00pm start (to 10.00pm)
  • Monday Afternoons  (restarts October 2nd) 12.45pm for a prompt 1.00pm start (to 4.00pm)

The hands are randomly generated by computer and dealt using a PlayBridgeDealer4+ machine. The purchase of the machine and associated material (cards and boards) has been supported by funding from Milton Keynes Community Foundation (click here for further information and a demonstration).

Results are collated using Bridge Tab App on Lenovo tablets and reported on this website usually the following day together with details of the hands played.

We are not as yet affiliated to the EBU and cannot issue Master-points

 Members are welcome to bring a guest and other Visitors are welcome and requested to make contact in advance. Contact  Phil Armitage 01908  584473

Director's Hand of the Week 17th January

Played in NT  by 11 pairs with 4 pairs bidding and making 6NT. A 7♣ shot was undoubled with the ace of trumps missing! Not an easy slam to bid. 2NT by North can be followed by 3 by South (3♣ being Stayman) N rebids 3 and if South bids 4♣ (natural - not Gerber) then North can check aces and kings and bid 6NT.

Looking for a Regular or Occasional Partner?

If you're looking for either a regular or an occasional partner, or are perhaps willing to be contacted when someone else is looking, there are two options.

One. Just click on the Membership tab opposite left and log into the secure Members'Area with your own email address and password.

Select 'New Message' and how long you want it listed for.  It's then very easy to either compose your own message, or use any of the standard message templates from the drop-down menu, which can only be seen by other clubmembers also logged into the Members'Area.

Two. Anyone who needs a partner may also get in touch either by email or telephone

  - by Tuesday  for a partner on Wednesday 

 - by Friday for a partner on Monday.

with Phil Armitage (01908 584473), or failing that with any other of the Committee members .

B. No player shall touch any cards other than his own during or after play except by permission of an opponent or the Director.

Law 68     Claims and Concessions

After any claim or concession, play is suspended (NOT as previously ceases).
1. The claim or concession can be agreed; or

2. If it is doubted by any player (dummy included); either

(a) the Director may immediately be summoned; or

(b) upon the request of the non-claiming or non-conceding side, play may continue subject to all four players agreeing and the score subsequently obtained shall stand.

If they agree to playing on there is no redress at the end of the hand. TDs also need to be clear that playing on is not an option when they are called to sort things out.
