From May 14th, our regular tournament on a Tuesday evening changed its format.
This new supported tournament will continue to serve to bridge the gap between classes and the main Club Tournaments on Monday and Wednesday evenings but now there will also be experienced players on hand to guide those who might require assistance during bidding and play.
The evening is open to all those attending classes in the Buchanan and to Club members who enjoy and feel comfortable playing in a more relaxed and less competitive environment.
Play will start at 7.00pm.
The competition for the 2019 Carl Dickel Trophy will be held on Tuesday 3rd September 2019 at 7.00 pm.
