Welcome to Silhill Bridge Club
Derek Tilford

We are sorry to have to report that, very sadly, Derek Tilford passed away in Hearllands Hospital on Monday 8th September after a short illness.

 

We send our condolences to Barbara and daughters Karen and Gail at this difficult time.

 

Deatails of funeral arrangements will follow in due course.

SUBSCRIPTIONS AND TABLE MONEY

At the AGM held on Monday 16th May 2022 it was agreed that following the disruption and, enforced changes, brought about by the Covid Pandemic the annual subscription for 2022/23 would be reduced to £5 and Members are asked to pay, preferably by Bank Transfer, as soon as possible. Anyone without the facility to pay by BACS is asked to contact John Adams on 01564 782232.

Table money for all sessions will remain at £3.

WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON CHICAGO BRIDGE

 

It seems that most of our Members prefer the more relaxed Chicago bridge format on Wednesday afternoons so these sessions will continue unchanged..

Chicago Bridge does,of course, provide the same challenges 'hand by hand' as Duplicate, with the same scoring system, but with the board comparison element missing.  Members believe that the opportunity provided to discuss interesting hands in some depth can provide a valuable learning experience and, coupled with a greater flexibility to cater for the time constraints facing people, provides for a more convenient and enjoyable afternoon,

Players of any ability are welcome and assistance can be provided for those needing some guidance.  We play from 1.30 pm until around 5.00 pm with late arrivals, and early departures, easily catered for.

Silhill Bridge Club (Affiliated to WCBA & the EBU)

A friendly Bridge Club with both duplicate and rubber sessions held at St. Helen's Church Centre, St. Helen's Road, Solihull, B91 2DA.

The duplicate sessions are held on Monday evenings starting at 7 p.m., promptly. We aim to have people seated at tables by 6:50 p.m. in order for the Tournament Director to be able to determine the movement to be used. We can normally supply a partner for visitors, through our host system, but, club members have priority, so it is advisable to contact us in advance, if you wish to turn up without a partner.

The rubber/Chicago sessions are held on Wednesday afternoons between 13:30 & 17:00.
