Summer Ladder 2021

The Summer Ladder finished at the end of August, and it's very well done to Sandra who has won the ladder: the average of her ten best scores was an impressive 63.59%.  Krys is very close behind in second position with 63.34%.  Howard & Isabel are joint third with 61.29%.  Congratulations all of you!

To see the full results click on 'Competitions' on the left-hand side of the Club website's homepage.

To qualify for the ladder you have to be a Club Member and to have played at least ten times during the season (March to August).

Bridge Bulletins

Mid-September already - where is the year going? At least today we've had some rain, and I don't know about you, but my garden is looking a lot happier for it. After a week away I'm trying to put in some serious time tidying it up and getting it ready for autumn, so this week's bulletin has kindly been written by Krys, rather than us doing it together as we normally would - so the garden and I are very  grateful! We both hope you enjoy reading it, even if you weren't with us on BBO playing the hands last night.

Have a good week and if you're going out and about, please do it as safely as you can ...

Sandra

Face-to-face or online

We have just held a Summertown BC committee meeting at which we discussed a possible return to face-to-face bridge.  The overwhelming view was that - reluctantly - we are not yet ready to do so.  Most of the committee and the majority of our directors and scorers are not yet prepared to take that step.  Maison Francaise is currently closed for the summer, but we will be talking to them when they return, and we will review the situation in a couple of months.

In the meantime we will continue with our online sessions on Monday evenings, but with a small change.  On the first Monday of each month, starting in October, the session will be on RealBridge, and it will be free of charge!  Further details to follow nearer the date.  From time to time we might link the session to a charity and ask you, instead of paying table money, to make a donation to our chosen charity.  We hope that playing occasional sessions on RealBridge may attract some of you whom we haven't seen for a while.

Those of you who play online will be sorry to hear that Mike Dobson, who has directed for us for over a year is leaving us at the end of August so that he can return to face-to-face directing at his local club.  Stephen Brown, a name and face familiar to some of you, will be directing for us from the start of September.

We are sorry not yet to feel in a position to take a step back into the real world, but I am sure you will appreciate the many problems involved.
