MESSAGE MARCH 16th - FARNHAM BRIDGE CLUB HAS CANCELLED ALL BRIDGE SESSIONS WITH IMMEDIATE EFFECT UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

ONLINE BRIDGE with BRIDGE CLUB LIVE

An invitation to play bridge online at @bridge Club Live,  and potentially join a Farnham "virtual " bridge club

Gabriel Hearst and Mike O'Donnell have put together the attached invitation and guidance to enable all club members who wish (and their friends, even if not members of our club) to play bridge on-line and, if numbers allow,  to initiate a Farnham "virtual" bridge club that plays on Monday  and Wednesday afternoons.   Gabriel has very kindly offered to help members set up and learn to play, if needed.

We have built on the work and documents of Tony Philpott and Douglas Wright, who have launched similar initiatives for the Bourne Bridge club and 3Counties Bridge respectively.

We have chosen Bridge Club Live as our base, as several of our members already play there, it is a UK based organisation, and has strong ethics and standards of behaviour. 

Click on the following documents for more information: 
 Farnham bridge Club Members.pdf,   Bridge Club Live Club Login Instructions.pdf,    Bridge Club Live HOW TO.pdf

You may join on a 30 day trial special offer for the minimal sum of £1.00 plus VAT.    Alternatively, you could ask an existing member (such as Gabriel or John Spiers) to "invite you as a friend" on the BCL website, then you get 50 days free followed by standard membership charges.

SYLVIA ROSE LAST SESSION MARCH 18th POSTPONED

FARNHAM BRIDGE CLUB SYLVIA ROSE 2019/20 - Final Round to be arranged between pairs

Entering the final round we have had to make the decision to POSTPONE the last session on Wednesday 18th March.   Small gatherings in peoples houses are lower risk, so those wishing to complete their Sylvia Rose matches by agreement of both teams can play in someones house and send the result to Mike O'Donnell.  For all who do not wish to play their final SR match at present, we will have a catch-up evening as & when the club re-opens.

Amazingly, after 10 evenings and 240 boards played, first (Varda & team)  and second (Nick Browne and team) are only separated by one VP, i.e. maybe just the odd overtrick.   Mike Kinsey and team in third place are also just within touching distance, so there is all to play for on Wednesday.Thanks to all teams and reserves for making this another close fought and enjoyable season.  Click here for Standings - Sylvia Rose Before Final Round 2020.pdf

WEYDON SCHOOL WIN THE SURREY SCHOOLS BRIDGE SALVER (again). 

This year saw the largest ever participation in the Surrey Schools Cup, organised by the Surrey County bridge association.  Our own Weydon School yet again performed brilliantly, against many of the very top public and state schools in Surrey..   Six young players from Weydon participated with credit in the mini-bridge competition.  A combined team of three Weydon  year 10 and one Rhyde school (IOW) won the Bridge Salver.     (Epsom College won the mini-bridge with Kings College Wimbledon winning the senior bridge cup competition).     George Abbott and Tormead schools in Guildford also now have thriving bridge groups and participated with credit;  junior bridge really is growing  and successful in our area.

Full results and photos of the Surrey School competition can be viewed on https://www.bridgewebs.com/cgi-bin/bwon/bw.cgi?club=surrey&pid=display_page79
