DATES FOR YOUR DIARIES
We will be holding two sets of Monday events EVERY FORTNIGHT when the Rothley Centre reopens. We have been given no official reopening date yet but we are hoping for (and planning on) a start on MONDAY 23 MAY and fortnightly thereafter until (and including) MONDAY 29 AUGUST. If the Centre has not reopened by 23 May, we will start on Monday 6 June.
GROUP A. CURRENT YEARS TWO AND THREE STUDENTS AND OTHERS
Brian, Jim and Stuart will be running a mixture of supervised play and duplicate bridge sessions, helped by Bridge Buddies. You don’t need a partner to turn up.
These sessions will be open to all the existing students and also to members of the CBT group who have been unable to attend the past term’s lessons but simply want some bridge practice.
The Group A session will be in Lounge Room at the Rothley Centre, starting at 10am and finishing around 12.15. The cost will be £2 per head per session, payable on the day, and there is no need to pre-book. Just turn up, and if we have an odd number of people, a Buddy will partner the ‘loose singleton’.
GROUP B. CURRENT YEAR ONE STUDENTS
Gail, Richard and Ruth will be running supervised play sessions for the current Year One students covering the topics they have been learning during the past term. These sessions – the group B sessions - will be in the Committee Room at the Rothley Centre from 10.00 to 12.15 and will be restricted to the current Year 1 student group.
As above, these will cost £2 per session and you won’t need a partner – a Bridge Buddy will be on hand to partner the ‘loose singleton’.
There will then be new terms for brand new beginners, and the current Year 1 and Year 2 groups, starting at 10am on Monday mornings at the Rothley Centre in late September.
If any of you know of any brand new beginners who want to learn bridge from scratch, ask them to get in touch with Richard (email address below) and he can give them details of the course starting in September.
This will give the teachers and Buddies a well-earned break over the Easter period. However, this is no excuse for you not to make up your own groups for some friendly practice – if you want advice about how to do this online we can provide it, but bridge is far better played face-to-face over a glass of vino!
Members’ contact details are all on the members’ area of the database – if you struggle to access this, drop Richard an email – firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are playing socially and come across any hands where you think ‘How should I have bid/made that contract’ just drop an email, with the hand, to any one of the teaching group.
Best wishes and a Happy Easter to you all,
Brian, Gail, Jim, Richard, Ruth and Stuart – Charnwood Bridge Teachers.
