President's Message September 2022

Hello all and a big welcome back to a new year of bridge at the wonderful Confey Castle.

We are returning to live bridge on Wednesday September 7th at ConfeyG.A.A.. at 7:30 pm.

Our Monday morning club returns on Monday September12th at 10am, in our NEW VENUE “Leixlip Parish Centre” at the rear of the church.

Looking forward to seeing you all back at the table and hoping live bridge will continue without interruption for the year.

A few reminders:

  • Fill tables from Table 1 as you enter to enable a quicker set up and a punctual start.
  • Always count the card hands before and after each game and ensure each hand is replaced into the correct pocket.
  • Only the T.D. on the night should move the boards.
  • Always reshuffle cards on round one to avoid hands passing out.
  • Use the Whats App to find partners.
