WILL MBC RE-OPEN?
The simple answer is "definitely but not just yet".
We understand that a few clubs have taken the surprising decision to re-open.
We believe, however, that this is extremely unwise and goes against current EBU and governmental recommendations regardless of how many additional safety features are in place.
The safety of our members, guests and staff remain our absolute priority and we will not take any risks to endanger anyone.
We are, of course, constantly reviewing this situation and rest assured that we will be together again as soon as it is safe to do so.
Ollie Burgess is off to London to work as the manager of the Young Chelsea Bridge Club.
This is an exciting opportunity for him and we wish him well.
He has been a great supporter of Manchester Bridge Club and is an expert teacher .......and has said that anyone who is in London in the future will be most welcome at his club.
Signs of things to come maybe?.......or maybe not!!!
The Mutton Cup is organised by Jason Hackett. Last year some MBC players took part in this competition in Madrid and Jason is holding another on 13-15 August when quite a few of our members are hoping to play. Jason is also hosting on-line bridge games called Satellite Pairs and Peter Jones won the spot prize recently,
For all our members who have already switched or are considering moving to 5 Card Majors and 2 over 1 Game Forcing, this book by Neil Rosen is perhaps the closest to the systems taught at Manchester Bridge Club.
It is easy to read, structured and offers many quizzes and examples to test your understanding. Highly recommended!!
If you would like a copy please contact David so we might organize a bulk order from Manchester Bridge Club and perhaps a better price.
We have had to take the unwanted decision to close the Club until further notice.
Please look after yourselves and each other during this difficult time and keep in touch by phone and email even if we can't meet up for a while.
