AGM Monday 28th 18.30

Welcome to Chepstow Archway Bridge Club
Men's and Ladies Pairs Competitions

Both the Men's and Ladies Pairs Competitions were held online under the auspices of BBO on the Monday the 8th February.

The Men's Pairs was convincingly won by Greg & Richard.

The Ladies Pairs was won by Marion & Liz.

Well done to both winning pairs!  

Individual Competition

The Club held its first individual competition under the auspices of BBO on 25th January.

The match comprised 12 rounds each of 2 boards with partner as well as the opposition changing each round. A basic set of ACOL based conventions was used by all players in the event. There were18 entries supplemented by 2 robots to make 5 full tables.

The competition was convincingly won by Jean Chuter. Well done Jean!

It was satisfying that the robots didn’t perform particularly well. It would have been disappointing if one of them had won.

It is not possible to load the results to the website as we would do normally for a Club night.


There is still little prospect of restarting live bridge yet, but Archway has continued to develop its online presence.

We have the Wednesday evening duplicate Club  night and regular team competitions mostly on Mondays. Ray Mardon has also organised a program for our Club competitions normally held on Mondays and Dave Smith has introduced a new fun event, an individual 12 board session to be held on Thursday afternoons (no partner needed).

We miss all our friends who are not online of course, and look forward to the day we can meet again for live bridge.

Meanwhile thanks to everyone who has been participating, and thanks in particular to Dave Smith, Ray Mardon and Pete Taylor for making it all happen. Keep safe, keep well, keep smiling.
