FRIDAY AFTERNOONS

Keith Healey is now running Friday afternoons as a handicapped duplicate. We are encouraging beginners and improvers to join in. We would also like more experienced players to volunteer their services and, if possible, pair up with an improver - perhaps once or twice a month. 1.30pm START.  Please contact Keith on 01782 460639

A folder outlining club members' privacy rights under the Data Protection Act has been placed alongside the photocopier in the bar.

Welcome to Newcastle-under-Lyme & District B.C.
Paul Leese

I am saddened to report that Paul Leese passed away on Wednesday 3rd August, surrounded by his family.

Paul was one of the longest running members of the club, had many long-term partners and will be sorely missed.

Details of the funeral will follow however, in the meantime the family have asked to not be contacted at the moment, while they work through this difficult time.

RIP Paul

Bridge Lessons

Lessons for beginners and improvers will start on Tuesday 6th September 2022

For more information, please contact martin.aherne@gmail.com.

BBO Online Bridge

We are running a combined session with Halifax BC (https://www.bridgewebs.com/halifax/) on Tuesday evenings, starting at 7pm.

Any members that have played with Newcastle BC on BBO previously have been added into Halifax's system, so you can just register to play.

we now start at 7pm on Tuesday evenings.

The price per session is £3 per person and is paid monthly in arrears, by bank transfer (contact Martin for details)

They do not allow undos - so be extra careful with bidding and card play.

You can register anytime from 5pm onwards, just search for 'HX' in BBo- please be registered in plenty of time for the movement to be set and online ready to play a couple of minutes early so that they can start promptly.
Halifax do not use robots for 1/2 tables, so they use human stand ins if needed, so being registered 15 minutes before the start time helps them out.

There will be Bridge available on Sunday, 14 August 2022 at 6.30pm subject to sufficient numbers.  Please arrive and sit opposite your partner in good time. Thank you. 

The cost is £2.50 per person, per session - paid via a transfer to the club's bank account - for details, please contact Martin at martin.aherne@gmail.com 

The Club is running regular weekly sessions each Sunday, starting at 6.30pm - for members and guests.  Results are posted on the Club website as soon as possible after the event (usually within minutes).  However, there are links below to previous session scores on RealBridge,
