A new online Bridge magazine has been launched, with the name A New Bridge Magazine! Some of our top ranking players have recommended it so do add it to the list of your Bridge reading each month.
I have received a flyer for a charity Andrew Robson Day which is being held near Darlington. It is aimed at 'non expert (not beginners) but we have no information as to how many they can seat. As it is first to apply get the tickets I thought I should put up the flyer for your information.
The Andrew Robson Invitation
Our aim as a Bridge Club is to always be friendly and sociable at the bridge table as well as competitive.
We adopt the EBU Best Behaviour at Bridge code which has just been updated. There is a copy on our noticeboard. We do ask that all members read and follow the code, as we have always done.
We wish all the members and friends of Leeds Bridge Club a very Happy, Healthy and bridge filled 2018.
