Nice to see that the experience of playing with more experienced partners in the Buckley-Joyce was worthwhile for at least two of our less-experienced Members... (c/f Results from 20/2/19!)..... Well done, Christina & Marion. The Buckley-Joyce was deferred to 30th January. There was a fine attendance, which was very pleasing since Mick & Tom were two stalwarts of the ‘original’ club - one that was very focused on drawing for partners (we didn’t have such a selection of established pairings then). Thanks to all who took part - and apologies to those who couldn’t! For those of you expecting to see the result posted here - all of the Majors’ results are only announced on the night of the President’s Dinner. 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.   © 2012-2019 Rineanna Bridge Club & SéSuas BI Rineanna Bridge Club Don’t forget, the Club Pairs Championship is on Wednesday, 20th. March - next week! Please be early, as it’s a Major, and we should play as “full” a movement as possible.
