To avoid confusion and to maintain good relations with neighbouring clubs, it has been decided to change the name of the new club to the second choice in the ballot.
The new club will be called BRIDGE CENTRE SK.
The new Bridge Club's inaugural bridge holiday next year will be at the delightful Wild Pheasant hotel in Llangollen. Click here for the leaflet.
Bramhall Village Bridge Club runs friendly duplicate bridge sessions on Wednesday at 7.30 pm as well as Monday afternoon at 1.30pm at the Community Centre, Lumb Lane.
This is an easy friendly bridge session on Tuesday mornings starting at 10:00 am and ending at 12:30. It is in the downstairs room. The session is run by volunteers including Doris Kirwan, Julia Bannister, Steve Mattinson, Mel Pelham, Howard Stubbings, June Somekh and Anne Whitehead. Table money is £2.50. All are welcome and the session is hosted so there is no need to bring a partner.
The Monday Afternoon session runs from 1.30 PM to 4.30 PM. It is open to both members and visitors (£2.50 & £5.00 respectively), Master points awarded, no partner necessary.
Following today’s successful steering group meeting, I wanted to keep you informed of the progress we’re making and, hopefully, enlist your help.
From now on, both CHBC and BVBC are offering reciprocal bridge at normal members’ rates at all their sessions. This means BVBC members can play at Mellor Road on Monday, Tuesday and Friday (hosted) evenings for £3. CHBC members can play at Lumb Lane on Monday (hosted) afternoons and Wednesday evenings for £2.50.
Are you experienced by profession or otherwise with regard to planning publicity and events, designing promotions, website content and such like? If you can help, we need your imagination and contributions as we join with CHBC in our new bridge centre. We will deliver a full range of bridge activities - duplicates, teaching, supervised play, special events, matches etc. Please let me know if you can bring your skill to bear in our new exciting venture.
Volunteers are always required to help both now, and in the future at Lumb Lane. Particularly we are looking for host/directors on a Monday afternoon. This session always has been hosted and that is one of the reasons why it has been so successful. Two host/directors recently have retired and I am now in charge of organising the rota. From June 24th onwards, the hosting of Monday afternoons is in jeopardy. Please help if you can. Contact me at email@example.com or 07788 577535.
INAUGURAL GENERAL MEETING
We shall be organising a General Meeting of the new club to appoint the new committee or board. If you wish to stand, please contact myself or Alec Smalley. Posts to fill include Publicity Officer (see above) and Welfare Officer.
If you need a partner for Wednesday evening, please write your name on the partnership desk poster at the club, or contact Ross Worthington (0161 439 8359) or email Ross.firstname.lastname@example.org who will try to find you a partner. The Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning sessions are hosted so no need to bring a partner.
If any member wishes to represent the club in an inter-club tournament, such as the Nicko or Gazette Trophy, please contact one of the committee or write your name on the list on the noticeboard.
