Manchester Bridge Club’s next Seminar Workshop is on

SUNDAY 19th JANUARY

2.30pm to 5pm

The topic for this session is

PLACING THE CARDS”

…Bridge would be much easier if we knew where the unseen cards were! A lot can be worked out about this as the play progresses and there are sometimes steps a player can take to discover the things they want to know”.

Tutor Nick Greer

The seminar starts with a comprehensive topic discussion followed by specific practice hands demonstrating the correct bidding, lead and play.

The cost is £10.00 for members, £12 for visitors & £5 for students.  This includes light refreshments during the brief break.

Everyone is very welcome to attend – with or without a partner.

RAY ASHLEIGH'S AMAZING RETIREMENT  "JOG"

https://exrayraylejog.home.blog

 

"I wanted to do some walking after I retired and, in what may turn out to be a mad moment, I thought it would be a good idea to walk from Lands End to John O’Groats (LeJog).  This is a well known charity walk, often done on roads (e.g. by Ian Botham).  There are a number of books and blogs that describe the walk cross country which increases the distance from 874 miles to 1100 or more depending on the route. The route can be done, of course, from South to North or North to South (becoming JogLe!).  The advantages of LeJog include walking with the prevailing wind and (rain!) coming from behind the walker, hopefully I will be fitter by the time I get to the Pennine Way and the Highlands and a new walking route between Inverness and John O’Groats should be complete in 2020 (currently most walkers use the A9)."
