Publicity poster with "More about Ben Norton"

Newsflash 1

Are the seminars the same? Both seminars follow the same format: play, score and discuss, but they feature different sets of 8 deals - 16 in total over both sessions. Specially selected by Ben, they highlight challenges, triumphs and disasters faced by our England Team in the Bermuda Bowl. Bring you partner and see if you can beat the scores from the competition. Better still bring a full table to represent your Club and see how you all do.

Newsflash 2

Do you need to be an expert to enjoy Benís seminars? No way - youíll play an 8 board match (16 in total over both seminars), with hands selected from the Bermuda Bowl, against your fellow Leicestershire players. Then youíll score up with your England Team mates! See if you can spot the boards that were the outstanding successes or the disasters for the England Team. Remember £5 on the night. Bring your friends.

Newsflash 3

Have you signed up for one or both of Benís seminars yet? Weíve never had a World Championship player in Leicestershire before so donít miss this unique opportunity to play the same hands dealt to Ben and his England team mates in the Bermuda Bowl. Donít delay! See the article in English Bridge Magazine about Benís 6Heart contract and come along to talk to him about playing at the very top of our game.

Newsflash 4

Who will be assisting Ben? Weíre pleased to announce that Simon Stokes and Lucy Pathan will be there for both seminars. Simon will add his unique slant to Benís commentary and Lucy will be chief scorer. And, of course, Ian, our Chairman, will prepare the boards. We would like to challenge our attendees with a question. Who also represented Leicester as a World Class Bridge Player who was twice a European Teams winner, twice Olympic Champion, twice Venice Cup silver medalist and one of only a handful of British World Grand Masters. Please let Ian know your answer and we will put your name in a hat for a prize draw at the first lecture.

Membership Renewal and Gift Aid

THIS IS FOR EXISTING MEMBERS ONLY.  Visitors and online players will be contacted later

As you are aware County Bridge Club suspended collection of an annual membership fee for the last two years due to the forced closure of the Club premises. It is intended to reintroduce the annual membership fee at a figure of £20 with effect from 1st April 2022.  If you do not want to renew your membership, please contact Charles Gurr the Membership Secretary at mrcfg10@yahoo.co.uk

The club has been forced into becoming cashless through changes in banking and use the attendance module for Members to have personal accounts for all charges.  We also need to report that cheques are expensive to bank at 40p per item. So, if possible, the best payment options are by contactless card transaction or internet bank transfer to the Club account.

Gift Aid Declaration

As a registered charity we can claim back 25p for every £1 you pay in membership and on other donations to the club if you are a UK taxpayer and complete the gift aid declaration below.

Do you consent to County Bridge Club claiming Gift Aid on your subscription?     See the form below.

If YES I understand that County Bridge Club can treat my subscriptions as a donation and the following applies:

Please treat all donations that I made from 1st April 2019 and may make in the future as Gift Aid donations. I confirm that I have paid, or will pay an amount of Income Tax or Capital Gains Tax that is at least equal to the amount of tax that all charities or Community Amateur Sports Clubs (CASCs) that I donate to will reclaim on my gifts for that tax year. I understand that other taxes such as VAT and Council Tax do not qualify. I understand that the charity will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

Please notify County Bridge Club if you want to change the gift aid declaration, change your name or address or no longer pay sufficient tax on your income and/or capital gains.
