Return of Wednesday evening sessions

posted 18 May 2022, 02:32 by Rosemary Tate   [ updated 18 May 2022, 02:53 ]

By popular demand we are reinstating our Wednesday night sessions on RealBridge. We're going to try to help match up any singletons - please come along and sit at the higher number tables to find a partner!  The event isn't hosted, although we'd welcome volunteers to host!

Free membership offer

posted 18 May 2022, 02:26 by Rosemary Tate   [ updated 18 May 2022, 02:54 ]

As life returns to normal, the committee has been thinking about how best to ensure the survival of CBC as a vibrant organisation dedicated to the playing and teaching of bridge in the Cambridge area.  As part of this, we have decided to offer a free trial membership which will expire on September 1st 2022 in order to give people an opportunity to try out our club games until the beginning of September without incurring a visitor fee.

In order to make sure that our existing members are not disadvantaged by this we are extending existing membership subscriptions by three months as well. 

Return to face to face bridge on Tuesday evening

posted 13 Apr 2022, 03:13 by Rosemary Tate

We shall be returning to face to face bridge at Trumpington Village Hall from Tuesday April 19th.  Play will commence at 7.30.

The hosting system has been working very well on Monday mornings so we plan to extend the system to Tuesday evening.  Please let Vic  know if you can volunteer as a host one Tuesday - maybe because you dont have a partner or because your regular partner cannot play.  We will also need directors and scorers for Tuesday evening - see news item below.

Directors and scorers needed

In order to keep our face to face games running smoothly, we need more  volunteers to score or direct.  We need people for both Monday mornings and Tuesday evenings. Please contact Vic Morris to volunteer.  Alternatively, please contact Rosemary if you would like training in either of these roles.

With the relaxing of Covid restrictions, we returned to Face to Face bridge at Trumpington Village Hall on Monday January 31st.

The hosting system has been working very well and many of you  found new partners after lockdown this way.  Please let Rosemary know if you can volunteer as a host one Monday- maybe because you dont have a partner or because your regular partner cannot play.
