  Bridge in April

During the month of April all Duplicate sessions on a Wednesday afternoon will be played on RealBridge and are FREE to members. The third session is on Wednesday 21st April commencing at 2pm. We do not need hosts for these events as RealBridge copes with half tables and there are no ROBOTS. You will still require a partner. Click on the link below - Wednesday21stApril - to log in to the session with your name and EBU number and try and be seated by 1.45pm.

Another “interesting” evening for our director, with suprising entrants, no shows, but “director Bob coped”, thanks Bob, and also a thank you to our standby participating host Margaret Shadrack.

ANYWAY …. our clear winner, miles ahead of the field was GEORGE SIWEK with over 70%, in second place with over 61% was KAY DARWIN, so both get a Charlie Hall trophy to show off in due course!

WELL DONE George and Kay
