David's next lesson is on Wednesday 12 October at 10.00am.
The topic is doubles - when to double & what does it mean? This is a difficult area & one on which we expect David to shed much light. It is appropriate for all levels of player (except perhaps the very experienced congress players).
The cost is $15. Advance registrations would be appreciated so that we can give David some idea of numbers. Registration can be made via the Club noticeboard or to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Congratulations to all the Winners. Hunters Hill players starring in all events!!
Thanks you to all the helpers & those who donated for the catering. It was a great day.
Congratulations to Di Connors as the convenor.
We're excited to be able to offer our less experienced players the opportunity to earn red points. Usually, these can only be earned by playing in Club red point events & Congresses. In the case of the former, less experienced players are pitched against those who have been playing much longer. In the latter case, even where novice & restricted competitions are offered, there is still the inconvenience of having to travel to another venue.
The State Under 100 Masterpoints (the UHMP) Championships is an initiative of the Australian Bridge Federation to offer players with less than 100 MPs the chance to compete against those who are similarly experienced.
The good news is that members don't have to do anything except pay an extra $2 (payable to the NSWBA) & register to play. The event will be held on Monday October 10 as part of our usual Monday duplicate.
If you do well, there will also be a chance to compete & earn even more red points in the finals, which will be held at the North Shore Bridge Club at Willoughby. There is, however, no obligation to do so.
If you would like to register, please email Keith at email@example.com or enter your name on the sign-up sheet on the noticeboard.
