Online bridge update 70

Back from two sunny weeks in France and despite a blizzard of form filling and test booking fighting fit and ready to restart a new autumn programme of bridge play and learning sessions. Because of the short notice, I do not know how many of you will be ready for a supervised play session on Tuesday 14th September, but if there are enough it will be going ahead, starting at 9.15am. Group coaching will also start again from Tuesday this week. I will also be posting details of additional seminars and investigating further the potential for face to face bridge at Wytham and in Charlbury, as promised.

As noted last week I am going to be on holiday for the next two weeks, so there will be no supervised play or challenge matches in that time, and no coaching sessions either – sorry! The next supervised play session will be on Tuesday 14th September starting at 9.15am. Group coaching will also start again from Tuesday that week, and I will be posting details of additional seminars and investigating further the potential for face to face bridge at Wytham and in Charlbury. Looking forward to those.

Our normal weekly supervised play session will be held on Tuesday morning (August 24th), but starting at the new time of 9.15am. Reminder that I am going to be on holiday from August 29th for two weeks, so there will be a break in all bridge sessions for those two weeks, but there will be a mixture of play sessions, seminars and lessons in the autumn when I get back on September 14th. A number of you have also 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). More details on this shortly.

Our normal weekly supervised play session will be back on Tuesday morning (August 17th). I have added a payment button for that.

For the first time in over a year, there is going to be no supervised play on Tuesday morning (August 10th). I am out of commission and so too are many of you. Some group coaching sessions are going ahead however and you may be able to organise your own private game instead. It will be back to business as normal next week however and I have added a payment button for that (August 17th).

Looking further ahead, I am going 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 mixture of play sessions, seminars and lessons in the autumn when I get back. I will be sounding out how many of you are interested in face to face play again in the next few days. A number of you have also 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).

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!
