Bidding quiz - message from Seamus
Bidding quiz - message from Seamus

Hi Folks, 

               for the duration that bridge clubs are closed in our region I am going to provide a bidding quiz every few days which will appear on the left hand side menu

- Beginners and Novices Quiz or Intermediate and above Quiz on the Balbriggan web page. Answers to a quiz will appear at the time of the following quiz.

I will also provide new hands in Hand of the Week.

Hopefully these quizzes will prevent you from major withdrawal symptoms while your club is closed. 

I have already put up details of the quizzes on the Balbriggan web page on bridgewebs and I would ask you to spread the word please.
The first two quizzes are on the site.
Kind regards, Seamus 
Well done Adam!
Well done Adam!

Adam represented Ireland in the Junior Home International Championships for the Peggy Bayer Trophy in Wales last weekend.

Well done Adam we're very proud of you!
