Improvers Duplicate Sessions
Improvers duplicate sessions now take place every Tuesday evening. Sessions are open to members and none members alike ,so if you know of anyone who plays socially and would like to try duplicate in a friendly atmosphere get them to come along. A partner is always available. Just turn up. Also an ideal opportunity to test out ideas from lessons, changes to bidding systems and other ways of playing contracts.
Each Tuesday there will be a discussion/seminar on a topic of interest at 6.10 with a break before the duplicate session. Our next lesson will be on April 30th when we will look at opening leads. The first two Tuesdays in May will cover playing suit combinations to the best advantage.
Ringwood Bridge Club is an EBU affiliated club operating in Grassmoor, Chesterfield. We are complemented by Chesterfield Bridge Club and the U3A. Together we seek to provide and promote bridge in Chesterfield.

We Have decided, inspite of last years difficulties to run 2 teams of 8 in the Derbyshire Leagues this Winter. The A team will be the stronest we can field,the B team will give everyone who would like to play the opportunity. If you would like to try teams of 8 bridge this winter plaese let us know. It is a much easier game than Duplicate. We normally play 5 home matches amd 5 away matches between October and March. Shared transport can usually be arranged for the away fixtures.
Seventeen pairs competed this 3rd running of the President's Trophy competition. Won handsomely by Phil Green and Chris Challinor with 63.4%. The Handicap was won by the scratch runners up Baz Davies & David Emerson. A very enjoyable days bridge with good food in a pleasant setting.
The fourth running of the Marjore Mound Competition will be held on 13th May at Chesterfield Golf Club Walton. Defending Champions Haydn & Delphine Anderson are hoping for a large field to challenge them in retaining the trophy. A well attended event will also generate a healthy donation to the Ashgate Hospice.

Thanks to all those who played, especially those who stepped in at the last minute in the depths of winter.
