Congratulations

WOW!  On the day after they won the Phoenix Trophy at the County AGM Competition on Sunday, 4 September 2016, Jane Stirton and Celia Day scored a massive 80.56% at the Monday afternoon bridge session. This is one of the highest scores recorded at a full session in the club. Congratulations on both results.

Some Gentle Reminders......

NEW

1. To help the ‘duplimates’, who generate the sets of boards each week, it would be much appreciated if all players would note the following:

  • Please don’t eat at the table
  • Try not to bend the cards as you play them
  • Handle the cards and boards sympathetically to avoid damaging the card edges

2.​Will all members please ensure that the door is locked before the start of each session and that  no valuables are left in  coats hung in the hallway?

3.We are keen to ensure that we remain a friendly club. Please click here to find the EBU code for best behaviour at the bridge table.
