Online bridge update 65

Because of other commitments I am proposing that the Tuesday morning supervised play session starts at 9.15am this week (July 27th 2021). I have included a payment option in this email, as normal, and there will also be one on the website.

Looking further ahead, now that restrictions are about to be lifted, the prospect of face to face bridge is coming nearer and nearer. The last hurdle to overcome is the risk that, even if we all assemble as double-vaccinated covid-free bridge players, we may still get caught by the “go isolate” rules from some third party app-detected contact until those restrictions are also lifted. For the moment therefore it looks like September rather than July for our first face to face session.

I am planning to be on holiday from August 29th for two weeks, so there will be a break in most bridge sessions for those two weeks, but there will be a proper programme of play sessions and lessons in the autumn when I get back. A number of you have expressed interest in either taking or redoing some of the basic Robson courses while there is also a backlog of single topic seminars to be held (for example two-suited overcalls, throw-ins and so on).

The Tuesday morning supervised play session is scheduled for a 9.30am start again this week (July 20th 2021). I have included a payment option in this email, but if you want to email me to let me know your availability I will confirm that we are going ahead before asking you to pay. Some of you have already been in email contact and don’t need to do so again.

Thanks for everyone who turned out last Tuesday to make sure that the normal Tuesday morning supervised play session was able to go ahead. The situation is similar this week, but we will be reverting to the normal 9.30am start time assuming we have sufficient numbers to go ahead. I have included a payment option in this email, but if you want to email me to let me know your availability I will confirm that we are going ahead before asking you to pay.

For what I think may be the first time since the pandemic struck, the normal Tuesday morning supervised play session will not be running this week, unless that is there are enough takers willing to make a 9am start (I have to finish at a few minutes before noon). I have included a payment option in this email, but if you are free to start earlier, you may still prefer to let me know by email and wait to hear from me whether or not the session is going ahead. I hope that it will of course.

This week (29th June) the Tuesday morning supervised play session will be running as normal, starting at 9.30am. Please sign up by late Monday evening if you wish to take part. Look out for news of a first face to face bridge session in Wytham at the end of the month, depending of course on the state of restrictions at that time. I will send out a Doodle poll in due course to test the level of demand – or whether you have all become so hooked on online bridge that you prefer to stick with playing that way instead!

The next seminar will be on the subject of bidding the opponent’s suit and the various meanings this can have. I will be scheduling a date for it shortly, but if any of you are interested in this topic, please feel free to let me know so I can assess likely numbers. If the coronavirus restrictions are eased further next month, we are planning to hold a bridge get together at the end of June.
