  Charlie Bucknell Training Weekend

A training weekend has been organised to assist current and potential Lincs team members to improve their bridge. It will happen at the venue used by Louth Bridge Club (the Indoor Bowls club in Louth, ample parking and a bar for drinks and food) on 1st/2nd October (10:00 to 15:30 on Saturday, 11:00 to 16:00 on Sunday). Charlie Bucknell (bridge professional and England under 26 international player) will be running the course. Charlie is a nice guy and a good teacher. The course will cost £40:00 for the weekend. If you have played in a Lincolnshire team or just feel you would like to know more about bridge beyond the basics, I’m sure you will find much in the course that is helpful. Numbers are limited to 20. If we get more than that, selection will be based mostly on a first come, first served basis. To book a place, contact me by email County Captain or any other method. Rodney Mitchell.
