Welcome to Ashley Green Bridge Club
AGBC Annual General Meeting

It has been three years since we have been able to gather and hold our Club AGM due to COVID-19; it is therefore with great pleasure that your Committee wishes to announce that the Club AGM will be held at Ashley Green Memorial Hall on Thursday 13 October starting at 19:00.

The agenda for the evening will be:

  1. Minutes of the last AGM (click here to open the 2019 AGM Minutes)
  2. Matters Arising
  3. Election of Officers and Committee Members
  4. Statement of Accounts
  5. Membership
  6. RealBridge
  7. Any Other Business

This is your opportunity to let other members and your Committee know about any club issues that you wish to raise or to hear any comments you may wish to make on the running of YOUR bridge club. If you wish an issue to be raised on your behalf through the chair, please let me have its details.

We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible on 13 October.

Ian (on behalf of the committee)

Brief Encounters

The AGBC Committee wish to thank all those that attended Thursday evening’s event and their patience as we got to grips with the “interesting” movement that had been devised so that you played with different people in most rounds. It was good to feel that buzz around the room as everybody mingled whilst enjoying the alcohol, nibbles and later the superb cakes!

As a progressive Bridge Club Committee, we are always on the lookout for new ideas for a one-off social event, so if you have been to any interesting ones please let us know; we do not have a monopoly on good ideas!

If it was your first time to an AGBC face-to-face event, we hope that you will come back again and if you need a partner please get in touch as you are not alone!

It was great to see our online director, Ivan, in the flesh after three years of him being only seen online.

The Club

AGBC is a Duplicate Bridge Club based at the Memorial Hall in Ashley Green, Buckinghamshire and has 120 members, plus another 200 registered to play at AGBC facilitated events.

Our ethos is that the first rule of Bridge is to enjoy it and the second rule is to ensure everyone at your table enjoys the game too! We welcome Bridge players who value Bridge as a fun and sociable game - either online or face-to-face. Friends and guests are more than welcome to join any of the advertised events.

AGBC facilitate on-line events each Tuesday and Thursday evening from 19:15 to 21:30 pm.

We also play face-to-face at the Memorial Hall each Thursday evening from 19:15 to around 22:00’ish. Please arrive and be seated by 19:05 pm to give the Scorer time to complete the setup of the ArcScorer scoring system, which allows for the electronic capture of the individual board scores, the hands played and provides an instant display of the event's result on each tablet.

There is ample parking at the Memorial Hall with good access for all and we can accommodate a maximum of 20 tables.

If you know you are coming but are struggling time wise, but will be there to start at 19:15 pm, just call the Club on 07856 367236. Play will commence at 19:15 pm promptly after any announcements.
