New Duplicate Session Friday Nights

Starting on 30th October at 7.15 pm we will run a duplicate session on BBO on Friday nights.   

If you have already registered your BBO name with us you simply need to look for the tournament which will be called Friday Night Duplicate GX and log in in the normal way.   

If you have not played with us before and would like you, you need to email val@bridgeschoolgx.co.uk with your BBO name and EBU number  (if you have one).   

You do need a partner to play.   

The cost will be $4.  For the first couple of weeks we will play 16 boards, increasing to 18 thereafter.      In the event of a sitout we will use robots.   

The director will be Richard Banbury and he can be contacted by text on 07753 239830.

SUPERVISED GENTLE DUPLICATE BRIDGE SESSION WITH ANN  smiley

This session is for anyone who needs to refresh their basic bidding and card play. Lots of help available.

When:  Every Thursday afternoon 1:30pm - 4:00pm
Where  The Tony Graham Room, Chalfont St Peter Community   Centre

Ann gives a short talk before each session starts, either on a subject of your or her choice.  The sessions are scored and are duplicate - i.e. we move from table to table and we focus on learning and fun.

 

Car Parking

 

PARKING ON OUR MONDAY SESSION

To give us extra parking on a Monday, we have once again rented the Scout Car Park.  This can be reached by going into the entrance (over the little bridge) and turning right towards the Tennis Club.  The Scouts' building is the second building along and the gates to the car park will be open.  PLEASE, IF YOU ARE FIT AND ABLE, USE THIS SPACE on a Monday to allow others who visit the centre for other classes, to park their cars (some are elderley and disabled).  Your help would be greatly appreciated.

PARKING ON OUR THURSDAY SESSION

Unfortunately we are unable to rent the Scout Car Park on a Thursday.  There are a few extra spaces available if you go down the lane towards the Scout Building and through the gate.  You can then park on the right hand side opposite the green.  There is also the Pay and Display in the village, just a short walk through the play area.

THE COVID 19 VIRUS

We are following both the EBU and Government advice and have closed our face to face Bridge sessions until further notice.  We are however running very successful duplicate sessions online using Bridge Base Online on Mondays and Thursdays at 2pm.  Contact Val by email val@bridgeschoolgx.co.uk if you would like to register for either of these sessions.
