​On Monday Evening ​Margaret Aitchison & Chris Longthorn led a ​three table ​Full Howell movement with ​61.00.​ The numbers may have been low, but the quality was high: average handicap was 50.95%.​

On Tuesday Afternoon ​eleven tables played a two-winner Mitchell movement. ​Terry Leary & Richard Gibson led North / South with ​62.73; East / West was topped by ​Cynthia Martin & Malcolm Fawcett with ​58.41.

​In our summer pairs handicap competition​, out of the regular partnerships, Jane Walker & Margaret Aitchison lead with 60.05, only a tiny margin ahead of Maria Smith & Patti Jarvis. Carol Broadhurst & Maxine Ross are less than 1% behind these two.​ Looking forward to fierce competition over the last few weeks of the competition.​

​Negative Doubles was the topic on Wednesday Morning. ​Four tables practised a variety of situations, talking about the outcomes on each board.

​On Thursday Morning​ the topic was ​Counting Cards and High Card Points​Players practised ​and discussed ​a variety of situations, ​finding how useful detailed observation of cards played, related to the auction, can be.​ Definitely challenging to observe, remember and reason.​

RVBC Tickets

RVBC Ticket Policy                f

Our ticket system is convenient and beneficial for our members.

One purchase of ten tickets leads to ten sessions without further purchase. Roughly 80% of players at our sessions are paid for using a ticket.

Purchase of ten tickets by cash or cheque at the club gives a discount on paying for ten sessions one at a time in cash. Purchase of ten tickets by internet transfer attracts a further discount. Roughly 55% of players at our sessions are paid for using a ticket purchased using Internet banking.

Bank details for transfers are on the back of membership cards and the back of tickets. Current prices are on the club web site, or by enquiry at the club.

Purchase of tickets

Purchase of tickets is strictly limited to current members of the club.

Ticket Validity

A single ticket can be used for admission to any pairs, teams and practice session.

Individual lessons from a course of lessons may be available for two tickets, although this may depend on the availability of spaces. Usually the best deal for lessons is to pay for the whole course in advance.

Each ticket has a date up to which they are “valid”. Tickets with any validity date will be accepted for admission to any bridge session so feel free to present the vintage ones. We will exchange a “valid” ticket for a cash refund if you don’t need it any more.

Use of tickets

We will accept tickets from lapsed members, or members’ guests at any session. We will not, however, sell them to anyone who is not a current member.
