Bridge this week

There is only one bridge session again this week as I have to be in London on Tuesday, where I am speaking at an investment conference. The session will be face to face on Thursday morning at Wytham. The simplest way to book in is to sign up below or on the Book Here page or send me an email. It is very helpful to know in advance how many might be coming.

Bridge this week

There is only one bridge session this week as I have to be in London on Tuesday and that will be face to face on Thursday at Wytham. There is no Charlbury bridge session this week. Please ignore the recent Doodle poll which has failed to work as expected. The simplest way to book in is to sign up below or on the Book Here page or send me an email. It is very helpful to know in advance how many might be coming.

Here are the links to this week’s bridge sessions – online on Tuesday and face to face in Wytham on Thursday. There is also a link below to the next Charlbury face to face session on May 16th. My apologies to those of you who got a Doodle poll request: it does not seem to work for everyone (although a couple of you have succeeded). So please sign up in the normal way if you can.

Bridge this week

I am sorry to say that there will be no face to face bridge sessions this week, only my regular online private coaching groups (and you know who you are). I have to be in London one day and away for a few days. In order to avoid the risk of future postponements I am proposing to create a permanent schedule on Doodle which will allow you to book in well ahead of time and up to 24 hours before any face to face session.

The next session in Charlbury will be announced shortly. These are the links. If you have already paid for a session hat was deferred and your payment was rolled forward to the next one, please still let me know by email that you are planning to come so that we can be sure of the numbers attending.

Bridge this week

The Tuesday online bridge session tomorrow (April 19th 2022) is going ahead as normal. So too are the face to face sessions in Wytham Village Hall on Thursday (April 21st) and in Charlbury next Monday afternoon (April 25th). The only reason that the sessions may be postponed is if there are a lot of withdrawals because of new Covid cases. If that happens to be the case (and it has only happened twice this year), I will notify everyone who has booked in at least 24 hours in advance. These are the links to the various sessions. Fingers crossed!

Face to face again next week

As promised we are proposing to hold two face to face bridge session next week, one in Charlbury on Monday (April 11th), courtesy of Andrew and Rosie Dent, and another in Wytham Village Hall on Thursday (April 14th). The Tuesday morning online session will also continue as long as there are sufficient numbers. The current intention is to hold the Charlbury sessions once a fortnight and the Wytham ones every week but this will be reviewed as time goes by.

Here are the links to the various sessions. I will hope to see you at one or other, or all of them! Please encourage your friends and neighbours to sign up to this regular email option to be kept informed of the latest news. If for any reason you are unable to make the face to face sessions, it would be helpful to know if you would be able to play online as an alternative.

Only online bridge this week

Tuesday morning goes ahead

As I noted last week, the two face sessions we have recently reinstated, in Charlbury and Wytham, will not be taking place this week as I am in social purdah ahead of my son’s wedding on Saturday. The Tuesday morning online session will however be going ahead as normal, kicking off at 9.15am. The two face to face sessions will resume on April 11th (Charlbury, chez Dent) and April 14th (Wytham Village Hall).

This is the link for the regular Tuesday morning session. Hope to see you then!

Pausing face to face

A wedding comes first…..

The two face to face sessions we had last week, in Charlbury and Wytham, were very enjoyable and the numbers who came an encouraging sign that we will be able to bring back face to face bridge on a regular schedule. Notwithstanding that, I have decided not to hold any more such sessions this week and next. The reason is that my son is getting married on Saturday week (April 9th) and having postponed the wedding once already, he and his girlfriend are very keen to avoid it being ruined again by Covid, relatively mild though the latest variant is.

I am therefore being super-cautious and cutting back on any social gatherings that might conceivably lead to my catching and spreading the virus, or risk my having to miss this important date on the calendar. My apologies to all of you who have indicated your willingness to attend one or other of the face to face sessions in the next two weeks. The plan is to revive both sessions the following week (April 11th in Charlbury and April 14th in Wytham).

I hope you will make a note of the dates and use this Doodle poll to show if you are potentially interested in joining us.

This is the link (https://doodle.com/meeting/participate/id/Rb4NYx2e) for the next three weekly Wytham sessions.

This is the link (https://doodle.com/meeting/participate/id/nelqNB5a) to the Doodle poll for the next Charlbury date. There is only date given at the moment, as the timing of these sessions in future may change after this next definite date.

The Tuesday morning online session is going ahead tomorrow as normal (March 28th, starting at 9.15am). If any of you are interested in a second online session on Thursday morning (March 30th) please let me know and I will look to organise that as well if there are sufficient numbers.

Face to face bridge update

Next events reminder!

This is a reminder that we are planning to hold two more face to face sessions of bridge next week. The first is on Monday afternoon (March 21st), kicking off at 2.30pm in Andrew and Rosie Dent’s splendid barn a couple of miles outside the town. The second will be at Wytham Village Hall, starting at 10am, next Thursday (March 24th). You can book a place from the links below or from the Book Here page. There are separate links for each session so if you are reading this on a tablet or mobile, you will need to scroll down to find the relevant link.

If you are having difficulty paying through the website, please let me know by email and I can reserve a place and send you the bank transfer details. Although it is rarely a problem, I cannot unfortunately give a 100% guarantee to accommodate everyone unless they have either signed up or let me know they are coming. If you are rolling forward your booking from last week in Wytham I will assume you are coming this week unless you tell me otherwise, but it would still be helpful to have that confirmation so we can plan numbers.

The regular Tuesday morning online session will resume again this week at the new normal time of 10am. The same booking arrangements as above. Hope to see you all soon.
