Last Wednesday, Peter Finch and Jenny Kinton signed into the Bradenton Bridge Club 2pm session, not the Bradgate one. Jenny (username "sileby-poet") memorialised the experience in verse:
>> We thought we’d cracked this online bridge, and managed it with ease.
>> Last week we played at Bradgate: “Play again?” “Yes please!”
>> This week we registered our names and waited to begin:
>> We’d done quite well last time, we thought - perhaps this week a win!
>> The game began: it seemed quite strange, the bidding was bizarre.
>> There wasn’t the same ‘feel’ at all. We were not ‘up to par’.
>> Then things got worse. We struggled on, with very muddled heads;
>> When partner thought a bit too long, Opponent messaged ‘zzzzzzzs’!
>> When it was over we found out - a long way we had gone
>> And played in Florida, US - the club’s called Bradenton!
>> To try a game another week, we don’t know if we dare
>> And partner dreads a mighty bill to cover our air-fare!
