Eddie notes that players are still not providing opponents with the opportunity to look at their system card. We would reiterate that it really is a useful exercise to sit down with you regular partner(s) & write one out. Then, of course, you need to remember to bring it to each game!
Eddie also provides another hand which is worth a look.
In case you haven't heard, Elizabeth Morgan died last week after a short illness. Her memorial service was last Friday. She was certainly a lovely woman. We'll miss her.
Cue Bidding to Slam and Bidding Minor Suit Slams
Wednesday, May 25th at 10am. $15.
When is it right to cue bid instead of using Roman Key Card Blackwood? David will go through the options to successfully bid to slam.
Please register on the noticeboard at Henley or by return e-mail so that David will have enough boards for everyone.
The Tuesday supervised session is back!
If you're looking for an opportunity to play in a non competitive environment & one in which help is available with those tricky situations which arise all too frequently in this frustrating game of ours, please come. The session will run from 4.30-6.30 in the big room & will be supervised by Di Connors, ably assisted by Keith Van Klink.
Congratulations (albeit somewhat belatedly) to the winning team of Parveen & Jamal Rayani, Faye Morris & David Mahadavan.
Runners up were:
2nd - Margaret Driscoll, Philip Moroney, Mike Bush & Kathie De Palo
3rd - Betty Priestley, Peter Shea, Tim Cregan & Richard Sheldrake
Thank you to all participants, particularly those who made the event viable by making themselves available on a day on which they would not normally play.

Charles Klassen has written a Forum article about the laws concerning Hesitation (or Break In Tempo) in the bidding. More importantly, he addresses the player's right to appeal. The Club has an Appeals Committee & where players feel that a decision made against them is incorrect, the opportunity exists to have the decision considered by that Committee.
