We will be running two heats of the SBU SIMS. on Tuesday 18th October online and Thursday Afternoon 20th October face to face.  They will have different hands so you can play in both.  There will be a booklet available written by an expert describing how the bidding and play should go in each of the hands.  These are Simultaneous Pairs run in lots of clubs all over Scotland.  The results are re-scored over the whole field.  If you do well you could win lots of Masterpoints and the pair with the best score over the four days will win the Lord Thomson Trophy.   There will be an additional cost for these events  £1.60 for face to face and 2 BBO$ for online.

August Newsletter

This is a brief newsletter to update you.

The Carlton Bridge Club Board

Following on from the AGM on 22nd July we now have a new Chair, Jim Wilkinson.  The other members of the Board are Fiona Davis, Eman Clayburn, Judith Smeaton and Alan Perkins.

I would suggest that this membership is not enough for the Board to run efficiently. If there are any members who would be willing to assist the Board it would be much appreciated.   Linda Delworth and Bill Cowe have already volunteered to assist but we do need more.

Thank you to the outgoing Board members John Pottinger, Marilyn McDonagh and Duncan Cursiter (ex Chairman). 

We would also like to thank Mike Baron and Hazel Brown for their hard work on our IT systems and website.

New Evening Tournament Proposed

Other clubs in the rest of Scotland are enjoying rising funds due to online bridge, however they do not own their own properties, but rent space to play. We have bills to pay and therefore I would urge you all to return to face to face bridge in the club. To this end I propose setting up a new evening session in September probably a Thursday. I would appreciate some feedback on this proposal please.

Carlton Congress

The Board agreed to have the Carlton Congress on the 23rd October,  again please sign up for this when the forms are produced. It will have the usual form of pairs followed by teams with a break for supper.

I hope you are enjoying your summer and playing as much bridge as possible.

Kind regards

Jim Wilkinson
