BEST BEHAVIOUR AT BRIDGE
BEST BEHAVIOUR AT BRIDGE

* GREET OTHERS IN A FRIENDLY MANNER, PRIOR TO START OF PLAY ON EACH ROUND

* BE A GOOD "HOST" OR "GUEST" AT THE TABLE

* MAKE BRIDGE ENJOYABLE FOR YOURSELF WITHOUT CRITICIZING PARTNER OR OPPONENTS

* GIVE CREDIT WHEN OPPONENTS MAKE A GOOD BID OR PLAY

* TAKE CARE OF YOUR PERSONAL GROOMING

*  AVOID INQUESTS PARTICULARLY DUE TO THE NOISE LEVEL IT CREATES

* ENSURE THAT YOUR MOBILE PHONE IS ON SILENT

* ENJOY THE COMPANY AS WELL AS THE GAME

SAD NEWS
SAD NEWS

I am very sad to tell you that our good friend and Vice Chairman of the club Chris Embury died on Sunday 13th June. She will be missed by so many of us for her vitality, humour and good company and not least for her tremendous contribution to the club  directing, organising our famous Christmas buffets and hosting many parties all year round from its early days. She came on many of the bridge holidays and leaves us with many happy memories.

Pictured here with Audrey with whom she played badminton and tennis.

TABLE MONEY
TABLE MONEY

AS THE COST OF RUNNING ONLINE BRIDGE IS FAR GREATER THAN RUNNING FACE TO FACE AT LARKHILL, THE COMMITTEE HAS VOTED TO INCREASE TABLE MONEY TO £2.50 ON THURSDAYS AND FRIDAYS FROM 1ST MAY 2021. WE HAVE KEPT THE INCREASE TO A MINIMUM AND IT IS THE FIRST EVER INCREASE IN NEARLY ELEVEN YEARS. WE BELIEVE LARKHILL OFFERS EXCELLENT VALUE FOR MONEY WITH THE LOWEST MEMBERSHIP AND PLAYING FEES FOR NON MEMBERS OF ANY LOCAL CLUB.

BANK DETAILS

AS FROM 31ST JULY ALL ONLINE GAMES ARE £2 PER PERSON.  IF YOU HAVEN'T ALREADY PAID IN ADVANCE PLEASE DO SO ASAP. PAT WILL CONTACT YOU WHEN YOUR KITTY IS RUNNING LOW. WE SUGGEST £20 PER PERSON BUT IT IS UP TO YOU. OUR BANK DETAILS ARE AS FOLLOWS,

LARKHILL BRIDGE CLUB
LARKHILL BRIDGE CLUB

Started in May 2010 our intention was to encourage novice players and lapsed players to join more seasoned players in taking part in friendly, duplicate bridge. We mark our Steel Anniversary on 6th May 2021 with a special competition.

We regret there is no more face to face bridge at the Larkhill Centre and recommend you to join us via Bridgebase.com or RealBridge on Fridays to continue playing with friends from Larkhill.

Membership has been suspended and replaced with an online playing fee.

 Visitors are welcome to play on Fridays which we run on RealBridge and pay through our kitty system.

Adam Wiseberg has been incredibly helpful and has spent a lot of time setting up competitions for MCBA (Manchester County Bridge Association) and has even produced "Idiots' Guides" on YouTube to help you get going. There is still room for a few more tables playing with local people, some of whom you'll probably know.  REGISTER with Bridgebase.com, it's free or ring me if you want help, Anne 0161 283 2992     

 

 

BRIDGE LESSONS

Next session with Adam will be Saturday 26th June at 11am.

Have you wondered how you might have scored better on a hand you played at Larkhill and would you and your partner benefit from some expert hand analysis. If so, why not join our  session lasting an hour and a half on ZOOM. It will cost a fiver per person and you will receive the Zoom link. Send in a hand from either Thursday  or Friday and several  hands will be analysed in detail with bidding and play recommendations by Adam. If the takeup is good we will continue with these sessions. . Adam can also introduce some useful ways of using the results and replay the hands using double dummy on BBO and other helpful ways of using RealBridge to replay.

 

Please pay £5 for the session (payment details below) and use the Zoom details below on Saturday morning
