Welcome to Manchester Bridge Club

Manchester Bridge Club’s next Seminar Workshop is on

SUNDAY 24th NOVEMBER

(This Sunday coming)

2.30pm to 5pm

The topic for this session is

BASIC DECEPTION!”

…Learn how to be a tougher opponent by knowing which winner to play when you have several to choose from…and find out which small card to play when at first glance it doesn’t seem to matter.

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.

“Have you had your lightbulb moment yet?!”

RAY'S "JOG" FOR CYSTIC FIBROSIS

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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)."
