Message from our President 3rd MAY 2022

First of all, thank you very much to all of you who took part in this year’s President's Competition. It was a very good competition and I hope it was as enjoyable for you as it was for me watching from the wings! The combined results over the two nights will be announced at our dinner on the 17th May in the Springfield Hotel and subsequently you will find them on our website.

The committee have decided to postpone our Monday morning opening until September and I know some of you will be disappointed with this decision but we are going ahead with starting back in Confey GAA on Wednesday, the 4th and all Monday members are more than welcome to play then.

A few points about starting back to live Bridge:

  • Come in good time and you can go straight to the bridge room, we were told that the dancing hasn’t started yet.
  • The wearing of masks is advised.
  • We will have to open some windows so make sure you have warm clothes.
  • We will provide tea, coffee etc.
  • Hand sanitisers will be placed on each table and you are encouraged to use it after each round. Bring your own if preferred.
  • Don’t forget your bidding box.
  • All cloths, card holders etc. have been thoroughly washed and we are providing new decks of cards.
  • Lastly, there will be no online bridge while we are playing face to face.

I want to take this opportunity to thank all our committee members, our online tournament directors and those who helped out in other ways, delivering prize money etc. They were a constant help and support  to me throughout our online experience. As there are are, inevitably, some retirements from the committee at the end of this bridge year, we are appealing for members to seriously consider joining the committee, we need volunteers for both Monday and Wednesday.

Kind regards to you all and looking forward to seeing you on 4th May.

Message from our President

Welcome back to a new Bridge year, online again I’m afraid but hopefully not for too much longer, we await guidance from CBAI headquarters on same and we will keep you updated.

A few reminders before we get started:

Log in early, at least 10 minutes before start time.

Ensure you keep enough dollars in your account.

Use Whatsapp group to look for a partner, please do not choose to play with a robot, as you will not be awarded any points if you happen to win.

Please make every effort not to pass out a hand, especially if you are in the 3rd or 4th seat. Use the rule of twenty and/or open on 11 points if you must.


We have decided to leave fees at €10 for each member (in order to cover CBAI fee), regardless of whether you play or not, this may be adjusted when we return to table bridge.

To be eligible to win overall prize in the Presidents Cup, a partnership must play both nights and have at least 50% attendance.

Thank you for continuing to use WhatsApp for Bridge matters only.
