USING THE UPDATED MINIBRIDGE LOUNGE DURING THE SUMMER
USING THE UPDATED MINIBRIDGE LOUNGE DURING THE SUMMER

Anyone who can count to 13 and do simple additons, and subtractions, might be ready for an introduction to our great game. So let's be ambassadors and use summer months to introduce our friends and family.  We've set up a Minibridge lounge with open access where you can get 4 sitting round the table and play some minibrige hands - it's as simple as that.

On our website beside the link to MB Lounge there is an Info button for 'Grandparents/Mentors' which you can read in advance or download, to give you confidence that you will know what to do when you get everyone round a table. Keep it really simple. it's a great chance to get everyone sitting quietly and concentrating for however long the attention holds. Each player can access a brief information sheet by clicking on the info button above the Scores bar alongside their name.

See what you think, do they want to do more? Then Part 2 of the Notes for mentors might help you give some guidance on how to progress.

If you're going to give it a try let me know and I will send you copy of the hands that are to be played so you can see all the hands and so guide and supervise your 'trainees'.

SUMMER BRIDGE SESSIONS MAY - AUGUST

We're now into our Summer Season of Bridge which covers May, June, July and August.

We have Gentle Duplicate sessions on Monday Evenings, Tuesday Evenings and Assisted Play Sessions on Thursday evening each week, together with 24/7 access to our Purple Page Club Lounge where you can arrange social bridge sessions with your friends at any time.

Last year we opened this up to other Scottish players from the many smaller clubs that are closed over the summer period, and this year we are happy to do the same. Our players pay £65 for the 4 month period enabling them to take part in any or all of the sessions during these 4 months, and the same arrangement is available to any other player who wishes to keep their hand in and have some fun over the summer. If you are interested please complete the form below and I will send you more information about taking part.
