Welcome to Worcester Bridge Club
CHRISTMAS PARTIES!

Yes, we have TWO parties this year, and tickets are now on sale for both.

1) Wednesday 13th December: Traditional WBC Christmas Party: 7.10pm start, at Claines RBL; tickets (£7 each) include plated buffet supper, free raffle, free first drink and free Bridge!

Tickets are limited to 18 tables; please contact Tim (timmytastic@aol.com) or Maureen (mjhannah@sky.com) for tickets.

Winners will win the Worcester City Cup! (plus some wine prizes); We will run separate Inter or Try section if numbers justify.

2) Tuesday 19th December: Daytime/Café Bridge Party. This will take place at Elgar's Café & Restaurant in Reindeer Court, meeting at 11am for an 11.15am start.

Tickets will be in the form of a voucher to spend £8 at Elgar's across the day; you settle any balance due yourselves. We will be limited to just EIGHT tables.

We are offering priority booking until Saturday 4th November to Daytime Regulars and Café Bridgers from September's event; thereafter we will open it up to all WBC members.

Tickets from Mike (mike1958v@mail.com)

Still a few sums to do, but we raised approximately £150 for Acorns too.

Lots of good publicity for the event and the game of Bridge, as Mike was grilled by his former pupil Elliott Webb on BBC H&W; 

1) An early morning call, before the event, listen here at approx 1hr 55m20: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p05ds9m5

2) A neat bit of video editing on FaceBook: (1400 views and counting - will we go viral??) https://www.facebook.com/bbcherefordandworcester/videos/vb.111193162286434/1705644462841288/?type=2&theater

3) More on Friday morning's show, http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p05dsb4k  - scroll to 51 mins; including a nice interview with Sharon at the table.

MANY thanks from Mike to all the helpers, Tim, Andy, George, Peter, Dick, Mike W, and to Sue and Denn for coming along as back-up pair.

Next week, same time same place: HALLOW Parish Hall, starting at 1pm; please be there for 12-45pm, but bring table money! (£2-50 members, £3-50 guests - but you can join on the spot for £3-00!)  Do bring friends and guests - we will always have a host! 

To ensure that we can be as welcoming as possible, we still need offers of HOSTING; and if you cannot help in any other way, why not offer to bring along a home-made cake or tray bake?

Welcome to Worcester Bridge Club
Try-Duplicate and Intermediate Bridge
Try-Duplicate and Intermediate Bridge

Our Intermediate Bridge sessions were to some extent a victim of their own success: after three highly productive years, almost all the "Inters" moved up into the Main Room and/or at our Tuesday sessions, or  started playing at other clubs; we are fully committed to the idea of providing Bridge to suit all levels, and will be happy to run/resume Inter sessions if a viable number of newcomers come through; or as an extension of the Try-Duplicate section.

Try-Duplicate sessions continue to take place on the first Wednesday of each month: here we have fewer boards (15-18) and a host to help players throughout the session.  Visitors are welcome, and there is no extra charge for these sessions: all players pay £2-50 table money.  It is most helpful if you are able to let Mike know beforehand if you are coming, so that we can make up full tables easily.

Some of our old Inters/Try-Dup players have found that the "next step" for them is Tuesday afternoon Bridge (see Daytime tab for details): these are held at Hallow Parish Hall at 1pm; the pace is a little gentler, and of course these sessions are becoming famous for the cakes which people bring along!
