Welcome to Summertown Bridge Club!
Well done Mary-Ann!

Many congratulations to Mary-Ann who, with non-member Christopher Whitehouse, won the Surrey Green-Pointed Swiss Pairs on 24th September.   There were 84 pairs competing, and they finished 5 VPs ahead of the next pair.

Bridge Bulletin

Autumn has arrived with a vengeance, hasn't it? and those of you who managed to get away to somewhere warmer during September will no doubt be feeling the chill even more keenly. It's hard to believe that only a month ago we were still complaining about the heat and drought  -although, of course, the ground is still very dry, and we had a leaflet today from Thames Water confirming that the hosepipe ban will still be in place for a while yet.

Speaking of complaining, let's not even think about politics or economics ... but instead cheer ourselves up looking at some interesting hands in this week's Bulletin, kindly written for us this time by Steven Bliss (thank you Steven!). 

Attendance at our face-to-face evenings has been a little disappointing so far, but we hope that now people are coming back from holiday and getting new booster shots, it will pick up in October. The next F2F session at Maison Francaise will be on 10th October, and meanwhile there's another RealBridge evening next week, on 3rd October. See you there, I hope!

Junior Bridge - Autumn term starts

DO YOU KNOW ANY 8 – 19 YEAR OLDS?

Click here for further information about the Oxford Junior Bridge Club's sessions.  The autumn term starts on Sunday 18th September.

Face-to-face and Online sessions
Your committee has discussed the face-to-face trial we've had during July and August and decided to continue it for the next three months (i.e. until the end of November) on the same Mondays - the second and fourth Mondays of each month.  We hope that, as you all return from your summer holidays and get your autumn Covid boosters, you may feel encouraged to come along.  There will be a host at each face-to-face session.  As before we ask you to register and pay online no later than 4 pm on the day of the session.  If there are fewer than 3 tables registered by then, we will cancel: you should check your email before leaving for the club.  Play will start at 7.30, but please arrive in good time.
We are very grateful for the support of Maison Francaise in doing this and also, of course, to all those members who have kindly volunteered to direct, score, host, open up and lock up the room, bring refreshments, deal boards, and all the other jobs that have to be done in order to run face-to-face sessions.
On 1st, 3rd and 5th Mondays we propose to play on RealBridge (so no more BBO for the time being at least).  We hope this will find favour with those of you unable to attend F2F, who miss the social aspect of bridge.
 
Here is the link to the registration/payment page for both F2F and RealBridge:

(If registering and paying online is a problem for you, please let Erica [ericasheppard5@gmail.com] know).  

And if this all sounds a little confusing, to check what is happening on which day, look at the calendar on this page.

We ask you to use common sense with regard to Covid.  Please do not attend F2F sessions if you have any signs of a cold or Covid.  Please bring your own supply of hand gel and wear a mask if you would prefer to.  We will space the tables out and provide good ventilation.

Do please support us at all these sessions.  The future of the club depends on you.

Erica and all the SBC Committee
