David Beauchamp is back for 2015 – He will be running classes the last Wednesday of the month until November ! They are each of approximately 2 hours duration.
The topics for the first two classes are:
Wednesday April 29 -10am Defence over Multi Two Bids - How to play multi-two bids and how to defend against them
Wednesday May 27 - 10am When to play in a Moysian Fit - Moysian fit is when we have only a 7 card (4/3) trump split. Therefore often the defenders have more trumps than we do. - How do we play this?
COST - $15 per person/lesson – book through email@example.com or on the list on the noticeboard at the Club.
The Wednesday 8th March Side Game Results are now correctly posted under Results/Duplicates in this site and in Pianola.
Attached are the 2015 Clare Trophy Results.
The event was run in 3 sections. The individual Section winners were Lakshmi Sunderasan (Section A), Brian Hocknell (Section B) and Archie Fraser (Section C). The overall Trophy Winner was Archie.
Well done to each of you, and a special thank you to all 60 participants who made the day such a success.
Please be advised that the results published here under "Results/Duplicates" for the Wednesday 8 April 2015 Side Game are incorrect. The correct results will be published in the next day or so.
Also, the results publication software we use for both this site and for Pianola will not publish results for Individual Winner events, like the Clare Trophy. I will separately post the Clare Trophy results here in the next day or so.
If however you want to analyse your own Clare Trophy results against the hand record, you will find the same hand record attached to the 8 Apr Side Game results under "Results/Duplicates" on this site.
Also I will get the Monday 6th Restricted Section results posted in the next day or so.
Apologies for the delays.
The April 2015 Quarterly Club Newsletter is now available under Active forum topics/Club Newsletters.

If you're looking to get back into bridge, we have the perfect course for you. (See below.) Following on from beginners' lessons, it requires just a rudimentary knowledge of the game. Anita Curtis has proved to be a popular and motivating teacher. Details of the program are attached. Hurry!
After many years in the same time slot, we are changing the time of our Tuesday night session. Commencing 24 March, our regular duplicate session on Tuesday nights will run from 7pm to 10pm due to popular demand. Also on Tuesdays, from 7pm to 9pm, there will be a separate supervised section. This session is open to all.
If you or someone you know is interested in basics, Anita Curtis will be running a course for those with limited knowledge of bridge. It's not for people who have never had lessons before, but aimed at those who wish to continue from beginners' lessons. It starts on Thursday, 19 March, 10:15am to 12:15pm. If you're interested, please contact us ASAP; it will not go ahead if there aren't enough players. This is a great opportunity for newer players.
