Today 4th April is Nora's 99th birthday. Many happy returns to you Nora. Sadly we aren't able to celebrate with you because of the current restrictions. But you are very much in everybody's thoughts.
We hope you are taking the coronavirus pandemic in your stride. You are an inspiration to us all. Sorry you can't play bridge at the moment. The below picture shows Nora arriving at the Club to play on her 98th birthday. Long may you continue to play bridge at York Bridge Club.
How good are you at playing the SQUEEZE?

We start with Teaser 11, which is straight forward and easy to understand

EBU offered and York Bridge Club participated in a nationwide stratified pairs competition on Monday 9th March. There are 4 stratifications which enables members to compete against players nationally in their own stratification.
York Bridge Club congratulate members Keith Joules and David Waxman who scored 72.16% and came top in the entire country in the highest 'A' stratification (where one or both players are at, or above, Tournament Master).
This is an outstanding performance and we congratulate Keith and David on their achievement.
Supporting the Maths Curriculum at Lord Deramore’s Primary School. In our second week with Year 5, the children were introduced to High Card Points (HCPs) and made to count their own HCPs in readiness for 13 card No Trump play next week, when we will also give them the Target Trick Table. One child said “This is better than our normal class”. Long may it last. Read More.............
We had our last session today at Lord Deramore’s after 6 weeks with Year 5 of teaching Starter Bridge. Click Here for more pictures The children are now able to play both NT and Suit Contracts and are discovering the power of “ruffing” to make extra tricks. It has been very gratifying to teach these enthusiastic young kids. One child stood up and said “This is the best card game in the world”. They love the help of the wonderful buddies, without whom the project would not have happened. We will be seeing a few of them when we go back to help set up an after-school elective club on 27th February, to take them into Minibridge. Thank you all including Mr Mark Richards of Lord Deramore’s, who has been most accommodating. Our next stop is the Minster School on 25th February, introducing Starter Bridge to Years 8, 6 and 5.
