If ever you feel inadequate at the bridge table, be grateful you're not this guy!
A Limerick

There once was a player from Tudor,

Who really couldn't be cuter.

He overcalled 1♠ ,

Died as he played,

The post mortem - a four card suiter!

♠   ♣ 

Bridge in the modern world
Bridge in the modern world
STANDING AT THE FRONT OF THE CLASS ....

... the bridge tutor tried a new approach.  "Stand up anyone who thinks they are stupid". 

After a while a gentleman at the back stood up. 

"Do you think you are stupid?" the tutor asked. 

"No, I just hate to see you standing there on your own".

"A day without bridge wouldn't kill me, but why take the chance?"
CHRISTMAS IS COMING TO TUDOR BRIDGE CLUB!
CHRISTMAS IS COMING TO TUDOR BRIDGE CLUB!

This year's Christmas competition will be held on Tuesday 21st December, in the Town Hall, Chipping Sodbury - and all are very welcome.  There will be loads of space so everyone can come - and it's an individual competition.  That means you don't need a partner!  It's not a serious event at all, just an opportunity for us to get together and have a little fun to mark the festive season.   And there will be prizes too, of course.

To help us with the arrangements the organisers would be very grateful if you would indicate whether you plan to come along by filling in the form below.

Your Bridge Club Needs You

Responding to the feedback from the members, we have got Wednesday afternoon play up and running.  Most of the players who have come along regularly, over the two months or so we have been playing, are from the small number who didn't play with us online during Lock Down.  We are receiving fabulous feedback from them.  But don't take my word for it, come along sometime and just listen to the hubbub of conversation and laughter coming from the playing room.

But it would be even better if you could come along and play with us too.  Have a cuppa on the house and enjoy the sheer delight of holding cards in your hands.  There is hand sanitizer everywhere, we all take our bidding boxes around the room etc etc.  And now we have the new Air Purifier too!

ome along and try us out.  During November and December there is no need to arrange a partner - but feel free to arrange to play and practice with your partner if you would like to.  Please, do try it out and support your local bridge club.

Today, Lesley D took over custody of the Tudor Dealing Machine.  From now on, as we move back to playing in the face to face environments increasingly, the role of the card dealer becomes important again.  Thank you for volunteering Lesley. 

If you would like to know about how the cards are dealt and why it is so important to us to have a good computer and operator at the helm just ask Lesley for more info - I'm sure she won't mind.

Welcome to the WARM Tudor Bridge Club!
Welcome to the WARM Tudor Bridge Club!

Tudor have bought an Air Purifier.  That means we can keep the venue warm, because we can close the windows and doors, whilst continuing to ensure we are doing our very best to keep the air quality as high as possible.  Great news all round.  We hope you will agree.
