On Wed. 12th. we had our Christmas Party. 27 members had a very enjoyable time.... in some cases TOO good a time - see the results. Furthermore, Ann and Jimmy wanted to let the Novices finish the Year feeling good about their progress - they ended 2018 finishing above the Club Champions!! (Honestly, Your Honour.....) Seriously, wishing you all a Wonderful Christmas, and a secure and successful 2019. We will return on the 9th. of January. Mondays will continue as long as people arrive in the Club!! On Wed. 14th. November, there was a very colourful Scoresheet!! Have a look.... Lovely to see seven tables that night, and even nicer to see things starting - and finishing - early. Keep it up, please. While all Members will get the “Welcome Pack” on joining, I would again ask  that all Members familiarise themselves with the Rules - specifically Bidding boxes  and Etiquette. You should all re-acquaint yourselves with the responsibilities around  scoring Boards, and completing the hand - especially with the replacement of the  cards, c/f note above and recent results... Also, the new CBAI information sheet is  very important, as it clarifies the requirements for - and differences between - Alerts  and Announcements. I have been asked to explain the use of both Discarding systems, and Transfers.  There are pockets containing these pamphlets available, and they will be on the  table each Wednesday. Feel free to take one - a Sheet, not a pocket! You can also  ask for one on the Monday morning if you want. The Club meets every Wednesday evening in Shannon Golf Club, play starting at 7.15. We welcome all visitors at any skill level, and we will always arrange a partner for anybody who wishes to arrive alone. Cost to visitors is a mere €12.50pp. Contact Mary O’Connor on +353 86 239 7079 or Jimmy on +353 86 8349155 for further details on Non-Member play arrangements. Members can also contact the President (Marie) on 086-8048657 should you find yourself needing a temporary partner for a session. Note that the T’s & C’s for these arrangements are in the Minutes of the 2014/2015 AGM - c/f Committee Page. Every Monday morning at 10am, in the same venue, there are lessons for all from absolute beginners through to those who feel their game needs honing - or indeed some reawakening! We also ‘review’ interesting hands from previous Wednesdays in the “Hands of the Week” page. See the About page for further details on the Club and it’s history.  There’s a few new additions (in Red) to the Hands of the Week pages from the Summer that may wake up the old grey matter. For those too lazy to check out the Gallery, here is a selection of shots from the Gala Evening in May ‘14. (Turn on your Sound...) All the recent Weekly Results are available for download in the Results Page.   © 2012-2017 Rineanna Bridge Club & SéSuas BI Rineanna Bridge Club
