We are back! Welcome to 2021, the year when we all hope that face to face bridge may return, although it would be foolish to predict it happening with any confidence. I hope that you have all enjoyed as good a Christmas as circumstances allowed and are now ready to get back to the virtual card table and see those lockdown blues.
The first two-hour Monday morning seminar will not be kicking off until tomorrow week (January 11th). Continuing with the format we had before Christmas, each session will start with half a dozen hands around a common theme, followed by a series of randomly dealt hands that I have not seen before. The first few seminar themes I expect to be devoted to the play of the cards, although the bidding of each hand will also of course be reviewed. The level is intermediate. You can sign up in the usual way either from this email or with the payment button in the sidebar of the website. Suggestions for topics always welcome.

The normal Tuesday morning supervised play session will however be starting again this week (5th January), starting at 9.30am. I shall look forward to seeing you all. Please let me know as early possible that you intend to join, ideally by early Monday event as it makes it so much easier to arrange the tables and reduce the risk of having to turn one of you away.

Our popular group coaching sessions will also resume as normal this week. Please let me know if for any reason you think that your group may not wish to continue with their regular session. There is always more demand for these slots than I have capacity for, so knowing in advance whether you expect to make them is helpful. I still have some other professional commitments to fit in during the week as well, so all the more reason to confirm your regular slot if you can……
Here’s hoping again for a better 2021.
PS It looks like my grandson and his parents are going to be completing on the purchase of a house in Charlbury soon, so that opens up the possibility of resuming bridge lessons there, as well as in Wytham, as and when the ability to play face to face resumes. Fingers crossed!
