Just a note to let you know of the future plans for CBT this year.
Term ends on Monday 28 June (that’s the last lesson for the Blue Group – the Red Group have already broken up for their summer holidays 😊).
We hope you have all enjoyed having your brains stretched a little!
We will be having duplicate sessions on RealBridge through the summer, starting on Monday 5 July. These sessions will run until classes resume in the Autumn (see below).
We are increasing the number of boards from 14 to 16; we hope to get these done in the same time as our current sessions, now that you are all more experienced.
The log-in code for each session will be put on the Home Page of the CBT website https://www.bridgewebs.com/charnwoodteachers/
each weekend. It makes sense for you to bookmark this page so you can find it easily. There will be a different log-in code each week.
If you don’t have a partner but want to play, please log in to the session, wait in the lobby and make a comment ‘partner wanted’ in the chat box. It is easiest for us if you pair up with each other beforehand though. There will be one Bridge Buddy available to partner any singleton left alone after everyone has paired up.
Some of you have friends who are registered as students, but have taken the summer off and haven’t been attending the spring term. In case we miss them in this circular, can you let them know that they will be very welcome to join these duplicate sessions.
There will be no charge for these sessions, for all registered CBT students.
The provisional plan (all being well) is to return to Face-to-Face lessons for all of you on-line students from early October, at 10am at the Rothley Centre on a Monday morning.
We will be teaching you in two groups –
- Year 2, which will comprise the Blue Group who have spent last term on consolidation, and
- Year 3, which will comprise the Red Group who have already learnt new topics.
Please let Richard know if you think you are in the wrong group at the moment.
We also plan to run lessons for Beginners (including those who know some of the basics but have no coherent system) from early October on a Friday morning at 10am at the Rothley Centre. If you know anyone who may benefit from this, please let Richard know.
This is a provisional plan, dependent on two major variables:
a) government guidance and
b) the availability of the Rothley Centre, which is undergoing a major refurbishment between July and September – returning to F2F teaching will depend on the Rothley Centre’s reopening date.
With best wishes to you all for a happy summer break,
Brian, Gail, Jim, Richard, Ruth and Stuart
