Our Congress is nearly here!

It's time to sign up for our annual congress to be held on Sunday, 11 September at 10 a.m. It's already more than half full. We're particularly anxious to sign up players for the restricted and novice sections; these won't go ahead without enough teams registered. If you win, your prize money will cover the cost of your entry! If you're having trouble getting a team together, please contact Di Connors or ask the directors who may know of other incomplete teams. You can enter online by clicking on this link: http://www.nswba.com.au/tourn/enter.asp?eid=3877&T=X
If you're unable to play in the congress, we're still looking for some volunteers to help with catering on the day. Please e-mail huntershillbridgeclub@bigpond.com
All details are outlined on the attached flier. Please remember that no lunch will be available on the day.

A different kind of lesson with Anita Curtis - August 9th

Hand Analysis – the best way to improve ALL your skills. Bid and play eight hands throughout the session and after each hand, learn the best bidding, declarer play and defence techniques with detailed analysis. The hands deal with common situations - ideal for helping players with all aspects of their game. Try it and see the difference! This class is designed for people who have been playing for at least two years and who know how to use Stayman, Blackwood and transfers. It is not appropriate for beginners. Sign up at Henley or e-mail us (click on 'Contact' above). $15. Registration essential. These lessons have been very popular at other clubs. If there is enough interest, they will become a regular feature at our club.

We rely on the goodwill of our members to assist in the smooth running of the club by tidying up your table at the end of the day & occasionally taking responsibility for cleaning the kitchen.

Australia-wide Open Pairs Competition - 29 August

Hunters Hill Bridge Club will be participating in the Australia-wide Open Pairs Competition on Monday, 29 August. On that day, there will NOT be a ‘no-fear’ section. Instead, the room will be divided into those who wish to enter the competition and those who do not. No prior registration is required; there is a $5 surcharge. It’s not often we get to compete on such a grand scale! Read more below.
