The Stratford Manor Hotel is a 4 Star luxury Hotel with swimming pool and spa set in 22 acres of glorious Cotswolds countryside with a Par 70 golf course for your use just down the road.    It is ideally placed for visiting the historic sites of Stratford and Warwick and enjoying the charms of the Cotswold villages. Also there is a regular bus service is available from outside the hotel into Stratford. We have had a fantastic response to the weekend and have increased our allocation with the hotel and secured a number of additional rooms

PARKING ON OUR MONDAY SESSIONS

Unfortunately parking has become a problem, especially at our Monday afternoon session at Chalfont Community Centre.  We have therefore, again, rented the Scout Car Park which gives us plenty of extra space.  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.

NEW SEMINAR FROM CHRIS WHITBY

Seminar - Thursday 29th August  10.00 – 12.00

Understanding the Scoring at Duplicate Bridge

When you enter your score into the Bridgemate, have you ever wondered why you didn’t get a better percentage after a seemingly successful contract?  This seminar will help you understand how the scoring system works in duplicate bridge.  More importantly it will also consider how different factors affect the scoring system.  To what level should we bid?  What’s the effect of vulnerability?  When should we double?  Should we sacrifice?

Why not bring some lunch with you and stay on to play bridge in the afternoon?

Cost £10 per person

Contact Chris to reserve a place:  chris@tessabridge.co.uk
