Welcome to Worcester Bridge Club
DECEMBER EVENTS! and NOVEMBER NEWS

We can now give you fuller details of our December/Christmas events, with lots to look forward to!

Wed 6th Dec is the Pairs Play-off Final, at Claines; those concerned have been notified of the slightly earlier start time, and final rankings will be decided on Wed 29th Nov.† We WILL offer bridge for those not in the final, with either a teams or pairs format and wine prize for the winners.

Tuesday 12th Dec is the Hallow Christmas Party; the Bridge format will be Multiple (Scratch) Teams, ie you need to enter as pairs, and you will be randomly assigned team-mates. There will be prizes for winning team, top pair outside the winning team, and one or two fun "spot" prizes.† †Bridge will start at 12-30pm, please be seated for 12-20pm, as there will be a buffet lunch at the interval. Pairs should book in with Roland well in advance, and notify him of any special dietary requirements.† There will a free glass of wine, and bridge and food will also be FREE!

Wednesday 13th Dec is the Claines Christmas Party; also TEAMS format, but for this event, please arrange your own teams; let us know if you need us to assign you team-mates. There will also be a Try-Teams event, again we will help to make up full teams. There will be a trophy cup for the winning team, and wine prizes for winners of both sections.† Additionally, there will be a free buffet, glass of mulled wine or similar, and a free raffle! Do let Maureen know you are coming asap, and any special dietary needs again so that we can plan catering etc.

On Tuesday 19th Dec, we will once again be "joining up" with our French partner club BC Romorantin in a "simultaneous" pairs event (they will have played these boards at their own Christmas Party).† This has no effect on what you as players need to do - book in as usual; but there will be TWO sets of results: results for our own room, and then after a bit of computer work, a COMBINED set of results, and the opportunity to see how the French do with different bidding methods!

Please note that there will be NO WBC bridge on 26th/27th December - enjoy your Christmas! and that we will resume normal service on 2nd/3rd January 2024!

WBC's 12th series of Online Pairs is now ALMOST complete: with just one match to play in Division One, congratulations to†Steve A/Mike W and Nick F†who are now safely assured of a second consecutive win, though 2nd/3rd/4th places still hinge on that last result! Champions in Division Two were David + Yvette Waide, with Roland and George runners-up.

Three WBC teams competed in the Healey Cup on November 12th, defending the trophy won last year by Simmons/Ledger/Ledger/Herbert; this year, the winners were Brian Yates, Bryan Ratcliff, John Dowbiggin and Mike Vetch, thereby retaining the cup for the Club. Opposition came from Bromsgrove, Marcle and Bewdley.

Roger Bowles Bridge Library

Members might like to know more about the Roger Bowles Bridge Library.

After Roger's tragic death in Dec 2015, his widow donated his extensive collection of Bridge books to us; it was agreed that these should be managed by the County Bridge Association, and they are stored by Martin Gill.  The full list of some 125 titles (both educational and humorous) can be found here, along with Martin Gill's contact details.

https://www.bridgewebs.com/cgi-bin/bwol/bw.cgi?club=worcestershire&pid=display_page65

We have a small "taster" selection at Claines for people to see, and books can also be booked out from there, using the notebook to record borrowing and return.
