The KCBA website has information about County events, news and results.

Welcome

Welcome to
Farnborough Bridge Club

We have now resumed face-to-face bridge at Farnborough Village Hall on Wednesday and Friday evenings.  We will run online sessions when the Village Hall is closed - see calendar for further details.

Just a reminder that we are holding a special general meeting on Friday 3rd December, starting at 7pm, to discuss the proposed changes to the constitution, followed by  party bridge with prizes  .  There will be no table money payable on that evening, and the results will not count towards your NGS.

Drinks will be provided (alcoholic and soft), as well as cakes and mince pies and all members are welcome.  No partner is needed, as a host will be provided.  Depending upon numbers we will either be doing an individual movement, or a 'normal' movement, with surprise prizes.

All members are welcome.  To help with planning - if you haven't already done so - can you please email FarnboroughBridge@gmail.com to let us know if you are able to come?  Christmas jumpers are optional....wink

Larsky Cup

The Larsky Cup is Kent's Premier Pairs event and the qualifier for the Corwen Cup.  Initial heats are held in clubs, from which pairs can qualify for 4 semi-finals run by the county, and a 13 table final.

All events held by Farnborough in the weeks of 15 November, 6 December and 10 January will act as heats for the Larsky Cup and any pair scoring 50% or more will qualify to play in the semi-final of their choice.  As yet no decision has been taken on the dates of these or whether they will be held face-to-face or on-line.
