Ipswich & Kesgrave Bridge Club
Online Thursday and Monday at 7:00pm
For present times at least, we are a Virtual Club, meeting Thursdays (club game) and Mondays (relaxed) on Bridge Base Online (BBO) at 7:00pm.
Joining instructions for online games are in the top-right-hand panel but please note, prior registering is essential. If you know of those who aren't playing, don't have partners, worried about trying to play online, please let us know. We're here to help.
While we wait for the vaccines to restore our face-to-face games take a look at our new initiative to help you solve these bridge problems that may be keeping you awake at night.
"Ask a Chris" is a new problem corner where you can pose your bridge questions to our resident gurus who will do their best to help you out.
Click on the icon to tell us all about it, or find the link on the menu on the left.
Coffee with Chris & Chris meets again on #updated automatically# and the mentoring scheme is still available to all members (contact Chris Green). Jacks and Chris are well into this term's learning groups and the Relaxed Bridge continues to attract ever more players on Mondays. Participation in the Thursday club also grows with registrations now running at around 188.

Trevor's Chairman's Charity Update
In these gloomy days of lockdown we were all heartened yesterday to hear that the end of the pandemic measures are in sight. For one Indian family there is also good news and some of that is down to IKBC bridge players. Before he retired last year, Trevor ran a Chairman's Charity event which raised around £400, enough to build a house for this most deserving family. Read more about the family and see the pictures that illustrate how the money many of you helped raise improved their lives. It's a beautiful story: Update on Chairman's Charity 2019.
