Welcome to Biggar Bridge Club
Children in Need 2023

Biggar Bridge Club participated last week in 3 sessions in aid of Children in Need and are delighted to have raised £230 for this cause. Each day, we played the same hands as clubs from all around the country (simultaneous pairs). Congratulations go to Steve Davies and Yvette Johnson who came 11th out of 1588 pairs who played on Wednesday night.

Christmas Meal

It is not too late to sign up for the club's Christmas lunch at the Elphinstone hotel in Biggar on Sunday 3rd December, but hurry, as we need you to confirm (and pay) before Thursday 30th Nov.! Cost will be £22 for 2 courses and £28 for 3 courses to include welcome drink and tip for staff.  You can pay by bank transfer or to a committee member/money collector at the 3 sessions next week. Menu choices and sign up sheet are on the noticeboard, but, if you can't come to the club to add your name and menu choices, then please contact Cathy who can do this for you. The format will be as in previous years: welcome drink from 12.30, lunch at 13.00 followed by a short quiz then some hands of bridge (how many will depend on numbers). Our newcomers would like this to be a random choice of partners ie pinky and perky etc, so names will be drawn out of a hat. Hopefully this will add a fun element to the afternoon! Please come and support your club!


Return of Workshops
The first resurrected workshop went really well and was attended by 18 people! Meanwhile, a picture of the club room with some of the attendees at the first workshop.


Continuing Lessons Restart

Thursday Bridge restarted on 6th September at 2pm and will run each week at this time. It has been great that some members have come along to support the learners who have really appreciated their advice. Particular thanks go to David Kerr and May Cameron who have been regular helpers. Thursday sessions have been informal with instruction and discussion of bidding and play and great fun! We would love to see more members joining us – just turn up on the day.
