Spring courses timetable

Spring courses

The schedule for the spring courses has now been published. We have two courses scheduled for Monday mornings (Beginners and Improver) and two for Thursdays mornings (Essential and Next Step). The list of courses can be found by following this link (https://arb-oxf.uk/schedule/). Please note that only those who have booked in advance can be admitted. If anyone is interested in other courses (including advanced play and bidding, or conventions) please contact me directly. Meanwhile, if you are a beginner, or not sure what might be best for you, why not book a place at one of our free taster sessions?

Play and learn events

The good news is that there are now nearly 150 followers of Andrew Robson Bridge in Oxford. The experimental Chicago evening on September proved to be popular and I am proposing to hold a regular weekly play and learn sessions from January. In order to reach as many of you as possible, we are initially offering three different options. Whether we can fulfil all of them will depend on how many of you have an interest in this kind of event, so do please email me with those in which you would have an interest, and let me know your preferences.

The options will be:

Wednesday afternoons (2pm to 5pm) at North Oxford Golf Club.

Thursday evenings (6.45pm to 9.45pm) at the St Hugh’s Centre in Woodstock.

Friday mornings (10pm to 1pm) at the St Hugh’s Centre in Woodstock, or possibly at The Perch in Binsey.

My strong belief is that playing bridge in the right company and the right spirit is not only enjoyable in its own right, but also the best way to make new friends and learn and improve. You can come along either with a favourite partner or on your own; with some notice we should be able to make up enough tables to accommodate you.

Email contact

It has also been brought to my attention that some of you who I thought were on the email list may not have been receiving notifications from the website. In some cases that may be because the emails have been misdirected into your spam or junk folder. It may be worth checking to make sure that you are not missing out.  I shall also be checking the reliability of the website’s distribution system and sending out a separate email to all those on our database, inviting them to sign up if they have not already done so. You may therefore see this message twice.

Happy bridging to you all.
