I am writing to introduce myself and to let you know that I have taken over from Loraine Findlay as Chair of the North District.
We are all looking forward to the new bridge season starting at the end of August. The new calendar is up on the North District website for you to view: http://www.sbunorth.co.uk/calendar.html
For now there are three things I would like to let you know about which are coming up soon.
If your Club enters or wishes to enter a Team of 8 in the Winter League, the Captain’s Meeting is being held at the Bridge Club Rubislaw Terrace on Friday 31 August at 19:00
If this is of interest and you would like further information please let me know – contact details below. It is an event for all bridge players new and old.
I would like to encourage your club to enter teams in the District Teams of 4. This event is normally played in 5 rounds on the first Friday of every month at Aberdeen Bridge Club starting 7pm (Please see calendar and note that there is a spare date in case of adverse weather.)
If you haven’t played in this event before please give it a go – get in touch with me for more details. Again please note that this competition is for beginners and upwards and provides a great opportunity to play ‘Teams Bridge’ which many think is the better and more exciting game.
We are acutely aware as a Committee that some of the rural bridge clubs are struggling for numbers. We are looking into placing adverts, most likely in the Press and Journal, to encourage former players and those wishing to learn to join a local club. It may help and we can only try and see. We will keep you informed on this.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me for any reason – if you think there is a chance I can help just ask.
