Ed’s seminars give an insight into the expert's way of thinking at the bridge table and guidance on how to develop this skill.
Reading Your Opponent's Cards is an essential part of any bridge expert's armoury, and any improvement which a club player can make in this area (regardless of their level of skill or experience) will certainly improve their results.
Ed will provide comprehensive notes for everyone

Please call the Director!
We would like to remind everyone that the Director must be called whenever there is any irregularity or any doubt about the correct procedure. Players must not make any decision themselves even if they think that they know the rules, but must consult the Director.
Common examples of situations where players must not make decisions include leads and bids out of turn.
A few of our members have a disability which makes it difficult or impossible for them to move around, or to climb the stairs to a balcony. Our Bridge Director will, of course, help them to find suitable seats. If notified in advance a convenient place will be reserved for them if possible.
In future we will not reserve places for anyone who does not have such a medical problem. The best way to find the position you want is to arrive early, but even then we cannot always guarantee that you will be able to sit in the direction you prefer or that you will not move; it might depend upon the movement.
When a session is about to start, the Director may require that some players must move to a different position so that an appropriate movement can be played.
We encourage players to have Convention Cards, but do not insist on it if playing a simple system. If playing an unusual system it should be announced briefly when arriving at a table and both players should have a completed convention card available for opponents to examine.
The present series of competitions started on 16th September
and runs until 13th December.

and to see current positions
Please try to arrive about 10 minutes
before the starting time of any session
If you might be late phone 01628 668700 to notify the Director,
or contact your partner.
It is very unhelpful and impolite to the Director, your partner and the other players to be late.
If you are late, without having notified the Club, you might not be allowed to play. This is especially important for the larger sessions where table numbering and movement may need changing according to the number of tables in play.
Our programme of Lessons and Supervised Bridge
Beginnners and more Advanced learners
is now in full swing for the autumn
More new classes will start in January
Please display your Blue Badge permit if you park in one of our Disabled Parking spaces.
Otherwise please use the car park behind the building, or on a very busy day it is acceptable to park carefully on the drive.
Thank you for your cooperation.
