Essex Contract Bridge Assoc. Annual General Meeting

 

It is important that we have a strong committee to promote bridge in Essex. You will be fully aware that bridge is a fading pastime in Essex. We need volunteers for the committee, sadly we are losing 3 hard working members from the committee.

 

We need people willing, to spend a little time, to help if not turn the tide atl east stem it!

 

 The AGM will be held at Barleylands at 4.30pm on 4 August 2024  after the Club Pairs

Sandwiches, wine, beer and refreshments will be provided during the break between the Club Pairs and the AGM at approx. 4.00pm

Boot camps - Marc Chawner
Boot camps - Marc Chawner

 

Following the Boot Camp on 12 May  Marc Chawner has now produced a new guide Know your Percentages to add to; Defence, Play in a No Trump contract and Play in a Suit contract 

 

Most of the best players in Essex were set the task of playing the hands in each category -  not always successfully.

 

See if you can do better, if not with Marc's hands maybe the next time you play at the club.

 

 Download the PDFs Defence, No trumpSuit contracts Know, Your Percentages

 

They will give you everything you could ever want to know!

 

Once again the ECBA would like to express their sincere gratitude to Marc for this formidable work.
