We have asked Sandy Smith, a well-known local Bridge tutor, to provide a short series of improver classes for the benefit of our members. These classes will take place on Wednesday afternoons from 3 - 5.30 pm at Fyfield Village Hall on 17th July, 21st August and 18th September. The first session will cover Slam Bidding, including Cue Bidding, whilst the subsequent classes will include Declarer and Defender play, and possibly Conventions.
The cost to members will be £5 per session.
If you are interested in the first class, please sign the sheet on the front desk or email Marion as soon as possible.
On Monday 20th May we held a very successful charity event in aid of St Clare Hospice, Hastingwood. We are pleased to report that, through the generosity of our members, visiting players and an impressive array of sponsors, we have donated the sum of £700 to our chosen charity. A big 'thank you' goes to the team of Rita and Peter, Barbara, Anne and Stan for all their efforts in setting up and managing this new event in our calendar. Our congratulations go to the overall winners, Brenda and John - the only pair to bid and make a slam, and commiserations to Ray and Lyn who went home with the booby prize.
