Christmas is upon us again... and so soon!!!
The Hunters Hill Bridge Club Christmas Party will be held on Monday, December 15th, commencing with a Duplicate Bridge Game WHICH STARTS AT 12:30PM .
As in past years it will be in the format of a fun Bridge Session run by Peter, with prizes for the most frivolous reasons, followed by the party proper.
With summer nearly upon us, you can count on the air conditioning to be ON at Henley. We appreciate that the air conditioners there are less than ideal, i.e., blowing right on a few tables. The room is just too stuffy not to use them. If you don't like the air conditioning, please sit at a table that is not affected and/or bring a jumper. Amen.
As you know, our Monday and Wednesday sessions are huge. If you’re looking for a quieter game, can we suggest Thursday afternoons (1-4 pm). Directed by Brian Soutter, it has quite an intimate atmosphere, which might suit some players better than the hustle and bustle of our larger sessions. Let us know if we can help you find a partner.
Congratulations to Jan Durham and Philip Moroney who won the recent Monday Red Pairs event against 24 other eligible pairs.
Full results are attached.
There are 3 Bridge Events, an AGM and a Christmas Party left to round off our busy year:
Tuesday Night Pairs - 11th, 18th & 25th November - Bonus Green Point Event. Please note that this event has been put back one week as there is no Tuesday Night session on November 4th.
Club Pairs Championship - Wednesdays 19th & 26th November and 3rd December - Red Point Event. Please note that only a pair comprising 2 current club members can win the trophy. Masterpoints are available to all comers.
Two Tuesday Bridge sessions have been cancelled on next Tuesday 4th November - Melbourne Cup Day. They are:
The 7:30 pm Regular Duplicates Session; and
The 7:30 pm Beginners Session run by Anita Curtis.
Please note that the 5:00 pm Supervised Session WILL RUN as normal.
October 2014 Newsletter is attached. It's a good read!
Our new Tuesday night sessions have begun (7:30 - 9:30 p.m.). The cost is $12 per session.
Experienced teacher, Anita Curtis, will conduct Basic Bridge sessions for people with little experience at playing. There are no expectations and there should be no fear. It is for newer players and is not a competition. It may also be useful as a refresher for more experienced players.
Anita will help you with your bidding and play and give you tips on how to improve both. She will give you short lessons accompanied by hands to demonstrate what she's taught you.
For further information, e-mail us at email@example.com or phone Anita on 0405 449 767. Or you can just turn up - no partner required.
