59

August 2018 English Bridge

www.ebu.co.uk

Over 80

bright-eyed

and

determined

players came

together for

the tenth

Nottingham

Café Bridge

event in April. Armed with individual route cards

and a map, participants strolled between venues

where they played six hands of bridge in a group

of 12. It worked seamlessly, with 84 players

moving between five different venues to a tight

timetable without bumping into one another.

Players recorded the scores using their smart

phones and the BriAn app. Results were instantly

updated throughout the day. Mike Nailard & Ian

Nicholson came first, with Kathryn Growchoska

& Ann Adkin in second place. The event raised

£1,500 for Rainbows Children's Hospice.

CAFÉ BRIDGE IN NOTTINGHAM

Bury Athenaeum

Bridge Club

boasts an age

range of 75

years. Beattie

Levene is 99,

while Max

Sampson is 24.

A 75 YEAR AGE GAP

Norfolk's Bawburgh Bridge Club found itself

with surplus funds after increasing membership

to 235 and enjoying an average 15 tables per

session. Together with the county bridge

association, it has put some of the funds towards

an EBED course training new bridge teachers in

Norfolk.

The club offers many varied sessions, including

supervised play and beginner courses. It has an

excellent reputation for friendly and sociable

bridge, run by dedicated, hard working and

much-valued volunteers who are willing to give

something back to the club. The club has also

invested heavily in IT equipment and

management software.

BAWBURGH BUILDS ON SUCCESS

Bradgate Bridge Club celebrated its 50th

anniversary at the end of March. Over 100

members attended, including Sue Tyler, daughter

of the founder member Howard Tyler. Also

present was the Club's oldest member, Monica

Lucas (93), who still turns out for the league

teams on occasion - proof indeed that bridge

keeps the mind sharp!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRADGATE!
