The Annual Christmas Party

A morning of fun and laughter was had by all at our Christmas Party.† Our director, John Rowe had lined up some silly hands for us to play which confused nearly all of us!† I don't know how they did it, but Paul and Julie came up trumps and won the tournament.† They each went home with a bottle of wine and very well desrved it was! There were no prizes for the Christmas hats but if there were then it would had to have been awarded to Judy (she made her own hat) and Andrea who spent the morning with a reindeer on her head.† The director got into the swing of it all and was Christmas from head to toe as you can see above where he is standing with some lucky winners of a random prize.

The memorial crystal bowl was presented to Maggie and Mo jointly.† They work tirelessly in the background sending out emails to invite people to our Tuesday morning game and then each week make the coffees,† and teas as well as monitoring the supplies to check we don't run out of anything.† We really don't know how we could mangae without them.† A big thank you to you both from all of us at Central Yarnton† ††

Didn't they do well!!
†Congratulations to our members who did so well in the ECATS simultaneous pairs† raising money for Children in Need on November 5th 2023.† They were competing against over 1,300 pairs across the country, Bharat and Rita managed to come 11th and Nieell and Stevie came 48th.† Well done to them and thanks to all of you who took part and helped to raise money for such a good cause.

Happy Birthday
Happy Birthday

It was a big birthday for our director John.  He spent the morning directing our face to face game where all the club members joined in singing him a Happy Birthday.  A quieter celebration followed when he was taken out for a Birthday lunch with the club chair and secretary.  We all appreciate everything that John does for the club, he is an excellent director and offers lots of support to our club members playing on the 12 board table.

Arthur gets the Crystal Bowl 2023
                                                                                

Every year we at CYBC award the Crystal Bowl to one of our members.  This year we decided to award it to Arthur Harold.                 

This year he has not only organised our first charity Bridge Drive, he has also made significant strides towards setting up a Junior Bridge Club in a local school.  We all wish him every success with this new venture.                                                                                                          

 

CYBC's First Bridge Drive

Charity Bridge Drive March 18th 2023

We all enjoyed a fun day at our first charity Bridge Drive. We raised money for ROSY which is a small local charity that provides respite care for parents of sick children. A cheque for £700 was handed over to a representative from ROSY. The food was great, and we welcomed players in from clubs around Oxfordshire.

The only person who didnít have such a good day was the director John Rowe as all the software crashed and he ended up having to input all the scores manually.

Wessex League Success

At CYBC, Nigel  advises on those tricky bidding problems and helps the people playing 12 boards with both their bidding and play.

Learning Bridge

The Club is committed to enabling as many people as possible to learn and enjoy playing bridge.  However, due to numbers now attending the Club on a Tuesday morning we are unable to offer a programme for absolute beginners. There are a small number of local tutors who organise courses.  Several members of the Club have attended courses led by Francis Pike, in Cassington, and we would recommend them to anyone interesting in learning bridge in the Oxford area.
