We would like to recruit more people so that their ideas and suggestions can be heard and used to benefit the club.

New club members and more long-standing members will be very welcome.  Being a Committee member need not be onerous.  The amount of time you are able to commit will be entirely up to you.  No-one will be expected to do more than they wish.

If you are interested or have any questions, please contact Susan Hoyle, our Secretary, who will always be very willing to answer your queries.

North Eastern Bridge Association Success

Congratulations to Stuart Davies who, playing with a partner from Manchester, came second out of 68 pairs in the NEBA Swiss pairs event held on 2 November.  On the following day Stuart's team was first - with 33 teams competing.  Both were great results!


Evening League Pro-Am

This year's competition is now under way. A lower entry this year will mean only five rounds will be played.

 

The second round was played on bonfire night and at this juncture the trailblazers are team Andrews M. who have a 3VP lead.

 

The league table and results to date can be found via the link in the Results page.


The Northern Bridge League

Several of our members have been playing for Yorkshire in the Northern Bridge League.  The NBL is a teams-of-eight competition between the County Bridge Associations of Northerm England and North Wales.  There are three divisions:  A and B for the former County A and County B teams, and C for teams of good club standard.

 Alan Jarvis, Stuart Davies and George Bak all played for either the A1 or the A2 teams.   Steve Blackburn, George Bak, Sue Pell, Carole Kelly, Gill Copeland, Stephen Berson and Pete Franks have all played in the Yorkshire B team.   This did extremely well and won the B division.


ARE YOU FREE ON A THURSDAY AFTERNOON?

We are very short of players in the Thursday afternoon drives and it would be much appreciated if you could come along and support Ray and his group.

The afternoons are attended by players of varying standards and everyone will be very welcome.

You won't need a partner, because, not only does Ray run the drive, he always acts as host too.

Please come!

Are You Studying in Bradford?


How about an evening away from the textbooks while still exercising your intellect with a game of Bridge?

 

You don't play? We could teach you.
