Newsletters

On the first weekend of the month we publish a newsletter aimed at players in our area. It just got a new name: "Heart of England Bridge".

The RVBC members only newsletter is planned for the second and fourth weekends of the month with maybe a bonus in five weekend months.

New Normal News (planned to appear during the third weekend) was launched very successfully last weekend and some of you have signed up for it. I am happy to add anyone else to the list so please contact us throught this site. Do pass it on to people belonging to/playing in/running other clubs.

Our Heart of England Bridge and New Normal newsletters are freely available, with no obligation, to members and non-members alike.

Win at Stratford Shakespeare Swiss Teams

RVBC is lucky enough to be invited to put two teams of four into this delightful event. While the event is always played in a really friendly and pleasant atmosphere, the field is always strong with some of the best players in the region turning out. So Malcolm and Max with Nicky and Jim are thrilled to have won it this year. Ed and Ishar White with Peter and Vera Iredale also played but clearly concentrated on enjoying the excellent lunch, wine, gorgeous day and excellent company!
