Congratulations to Denis Talbot, Kathy Talbot, Charles Bucknell & Ewa Wieczorek who won the club's Swiss Teams competition, held over two Wednesday evenings, 6th November and 4th December. They win the Eve Stockwell bowl. 

The team of Frederico Lombardi, Chun Ting Lau, Robert Gasser & Alison Withers Green came second, and there were three teams tied in third place - the Nettleton team (Diana Nettleton, Jonnie Richards, Matthew Covill, Emily Middleton and Nigel Birks), the Nicholson team (Sandra Nicholson, Krys Kazmierczak, Andy King, Chris Earl and John Deech) and the Kim team (Ruth Kim, Howard Arnes, Judy Wesselbaum & Isabel Pack), so well done to them too.

Come and meet like-minded players from a variety of clubs throughout Oxfordshire.

ARRANGEMENTS FOR THE CLUB CHRISTMAS PARTY

The club Christmas festivities will be on Wednesday 11th December. Everyone is invited to play in the afternoon or the evening (or both!)

Afternoon duplicate bridge will start at 2.30pm and finish around 5.45pm. There won’t be a separate Gentle duplicate session in the afternoon - All are welcome to play in the Christmas afternoon session. There won't be any restrictions on partnerships for this session. During the break there will be a quiz while everyone can have tea and cakes. Table money is £4.

If you plan to play in the afternoon session, please add your name to the list on the noticeboard in the hallway, so that we know numbers for the catering. 

At 6.00pm we will have mulled wine (or juice) with party snacks at a charge of £2 each.  The evening session will follow starting at the normal time of 7.15pm.

CHILDREN IN NEED

The club ran several fund-raising events for Children in Need during the week of Monday 11th to Friday 15th November. The raffle and cake sale have raised approximately £950, which means that together with the table money from the two simultaneous pairs events we have raised £1,124.59 for Children in Need this year. 

We would like to thank all those who supported us, by making cakes, bringing raffle prizes, buying raffle tickets and donating money.
