BRIDGE GROUP

In a full year we meet towards the end of each month from September to June (10 sessions per year). All meetings will be on a Thursday, see below for the current schedule. We start playing about 7pm, stop for a drink and biscuits about 8.30pm then finish playing as soon as a natural break occurs after 10pm. To cover hire of the room we make a charge of 2 per evening per player.

We play rubber bridge if we are 4 (occasionally 8), but normally we play the Chicago 4-deal version. This allows us to cut for new partners every four deals and ensures that everyone plays as often as possible during the evening. We are serious about our bridge but not fanatical, so if you can play but feel that you could improve (don't we all!), then we would be most happy to see you. If something exciting has happened to a member, the mid-evening break can extend considerably as we rate the social element of the evening quite highly!

Due to a drop in numbers, the last three dates of this season have been cancelled. Here is a copy of Paul's email:

Hello all,

I was unable to get at least three people (plus myself) to be able to play Bridge on the evenings scheduled for February and for March. So, following discussions I have had with a couple of the regulars, I have decided to cancel all the rest of the evenings scheduled for the remainder of this academic year. During the summer, I will distribute an email giving suggested dates for the 2015/16 academic year when I would hope that we could get a quorum.
Between now and the late summer, I would be most happy to receive comments about how I could change the arrangements to get more regulars.
Hope to see a few more bridge players next year.

Enjoy your summer,
Paul.

No meetings are planned at the moment.
