Annual General Meeting

The Club AGM for 2023 will take place at 6.30pm on Friday 3rd March before starting the usual Friday Pairs event.

Our Secretary, Lynne Emmett resigned during 2022 as did committee member, Ron Davis. Whilst their contributions are sadly missed, we will need to elect replacements at the forthcoming AGM. The current committee members - Nicky Adamson, Malcolm Lewis, Louise Preston and I are offering ourselves for re-election at the AGM. Nominations for committee membership should be proposed and seconded by club members and can be done by simply informing one of the committee, preferably in advance of the meeting but, if necessary at the meeting.

I must stress that it is absolutely critical that we replace the two members who resigned so please think seriously about coming forward to join us and put something back into the club we all enjoy. We do not meet very often, as a committee, so it is not an onerous time commitment.

Steve Bispham, Chairman, Canterbury Bridge Club - 5th February 2023

Larsky Qualification heats

Dear all 

There was a change to the qualification process for the Larsky Cup Semi-Finals that was overlooked at the Club. Rather than a single specific Club  session heat, the County Association designated that the Club session scores for in Kent Clubs associated to Kent County, in the weeks begining the 19th November 2023, 3rd December 2023 and the forthcoming 7th January 2024 would count for qualification. This meant that the scores on Friday 24th November and Friday 8th December were eligible, and the evening of the 12th January 2024, will be a night wher the scores is eligible to qualify for the semi-Finals of the Larsky Cup. Provided you meet/met score over 50% in the Club pairs on that night.

Some Club member therefore will have already received their invitation e-mails that since they scored the 50% plus required on the 24/11/2023 and 8/12/2023. The evening of the 12th January is a third opportunity to qualify from Canterbury (or at another club on another day/evening of the week of the 7th to 13th January). Naturally some players will have to chose which partner to play the semi final with as they may have qualified with other partners on different evenings.

Club Relocation

Canterbury Bridge Club has reviewed the Club's situation in context of potential membership and the changes locally in parking access, with input from some members. An option arose that was put forward was to relocate to St Dunstan's Church Hall that has been investigated, and has better car parking, for which a decision was required before end of November 2023.

After a Committee meeting, it was put to the membership on the 24th November prior to the night's play, and the membership (18 members present), agreed to relocate to St Dunstan's Church Hall  for a initial 6 months. The club is very sad to take this step as we have had a very good relationship with St Pauls church management.

The first evening at St Dunstan's will be on Friday 5th January 2024. There will still be kitchen faculities for tea and Coffee during play. There is on site car parking for 12-14 cars and nearby street parking. Details of the Hall can be found here.

The new address is St Dunstan's Church Hall, 80 London Road, Canterbury, Kent. CT2 8LS. There is no change in Club start time.
