Welcome to Annandale Bridge Club
Tournament Thursday 18th

Unfortunately Thursday evening's tournament on BBO had to be scrapped. Our TD Chris is extremely sorry and disappointed that this happened. Basically, the "show tables" screen was frozen, and was therefore unusable. Chris needs to see this screen when he wants to join a table, to request subs, to answer queries and to check if players are likely to overrun the time. He has no idea why the system wouldn't work and has now contacted a more experienced TD to find out if it has happened to him. Hopefully all problems will be ironed out by next week.

Welcome to Annandale Bridge Club

In more normal times, Annandale Bridge Club meets every Thursday evening in the small Blyth Hall in Newport-on-Tay.

Coronavirus Update - September 2021

Like most other bridge clubs, Annandale Bridge Club has been closed for face-to-face bridge since March 2020. In the summer of 2021 we were optimistic that for the new season in September we would once again be able to play face-to-face. However the committee has decided that the Covid situation has not yet improved sufficiently for that to happen.

Our new season will start as planned on Thursday 2nd September, but with online tournaments on the BBO platform, as we did last season. We are very grateful to Chris Goode who hosted all our online tournaments last season, and who has indicated that he is willing to continue doing so for the time being. Our online tournaments start at 6.45 pm and cost 2 BBO dollars. Chris asks that we please register before 6.30 as it makes life much easier for him. Registration is therefore from 4.45 until 6.30 pm. Any new players wishing to play will have to contact Chris beforehand with log-in details.

Pairs competitions coming up:

Laura Cunningham (1988) Pairs competition held over seven nights September-January. Best four scores count.

Education on line

Beginners course online

How many of us have friends who have said "one day I'll learn how to play bridge”? There are many opportunities for you to learn bridge online; some teachers are offering the SBU branded course materials, others are using different resources - but all  are being taught online  in Scotland . Please go to SBU/Education for more information. We are encouraging all our members to pass on the message. 

What better time than 2021 to learn new skills?
