Club BBQ

This will be held late afternoon on Sunday March 4th at Crockfords.

Our club has worked hard to get new members, to decrease expenses and increase income.

In 2017 this has worked well and to celebrate our successes (which are due to a lot of our members’ efforts) the committee decided to have a BBQ, to say “thank you” as we look towards the future progress of our club.  The bar will be open.

Please come with your folding chair and with a bowl of salad or a plate of sweet treats (one dish between two people).  Crockfords will provide the meat, the bread and people to cook.  We will also use the club crockery/cutlery etc; and we will have free bridge afterwards for those who wish to stay.  There will be about 2 minutes of speeches!  Please make up a group of your fellow bridge enthusiasts and please tell the club office or your grade chairperson, or Ann Ferrari, so that we can sort out the catering etc;

Pianola

As you are hopefully aware we are trialling the use of Pianola for 2 months.  It is a system where by you get more comprehensive analysis of the bidding and play as declarer and on defence.  It also has some advantages in the administration of the club.  But it comes at a cost and we need you trial it and the to give us feed back so we can decide if we should pay and go beyond the trial.

Note that the system is in trial mode and it may take a little longer to get your results up on the web.

Fundraiser:

Please support your club and buy your Entertainment Book from us.  If you go out for a meal twice chances are you have started saving.  Check the directors desk for the display.
