Honorary Membership Conveyed upon Helen Niven

Dear Members,

Sheila Brunton proposed the idea that we make Helen Niven an honorary member of our club. This was put to the committee and agreed.

I would love to present the award face to face to Helen, but due to Covid-19, this is not possible.

Helen has been a member for 62 years, was president 3 times as well as taking on the combined role of secretary and treasurer for an extended period. For a further 15 years she served as an ordinary committee member.

Helen has now retired from committee work, but remains a very active member of the club. When setting up the hall she is always early and willing to get wholeheartedly involved in the regular functioning of the club.

 I bought a glass award from Tannadice Trophy shop in Forfar and an image of the inscribed memento is shown below.

On behalf of Arbroath Bridge Club, we would like to say a huge thank you, Helen. All the members wish you many more years playing with us at Colliston Hall.

Your President

Ann

An Update from the President
An Update from the President

It has now been 7 weeks since we started our virtual club, the first 2 weeks providing practice and familiarity with BBO, then the following 4 providing some competitive bridge with the Soutar Cup. Last Wednesday we held the Ken Ward Individual, which I believe makes us the first club locally to run an Individual on BBO - I am sure you will all agree that the support has been great.

Alan and Matthew are doing great jobs: Matthew running our tournaments and training new BBO TDs; Alan, keeping our website up to date not to mention all the other jobs that we do not think about that are vital for our effective running.

I know BBO will never replace face-to-face bridge, and it does not look as if we will get back to our lovely hall in the near future, however I do feel we are all getting used to BBO and hopefully having fun with it along the way!

See you all on Wednesday for round five of the Soutar Cup. Meanwhile stay safe and stay healthy.

Your President

Ann
