These holidays are not for complete beginners, but will be suitable for anyone who has completed a bridge course. They are aimed at the non tournament bridge player but more experienced players are welcome too. There will be no master points awarded.

 

So, what am I offering? I will be giving seminars on bidding or play based on my 20 years experience of teaching bridge.   The supervised bridge sessions will be run exactly as you would expect from a retired EBU “B” Flight Tournament Director with duplimated boards, electronic scoring using Bridgemate II’s and copies of the hands available for more study.

 

The pace will be slow (much slower than the standard 8 boards an hour for my competitive holidays) and very relaxed.

 

Advice will be available during play if there is a difficult decision to be made. This will take the form of guidance rather than simply being told what to do!

 

 

Programme:

 

Day 1 : Arrive at the hotel from 3:00 p.m.  Meet Helen in the bar for drinks at 5:30p.m. Dinner at 6:00 p.m.

Supervised Bridge Session (Pairs) at 7:30 p.m.

 

Day 2 : Morning seminar at 10:00 a.m. with prepared hands to illustrate the topic discussed. Afternoon free to explore

the area or relax in the hotel & grounds. Meet Helen in the bar for drinks at 5:30p.m. Dinner at 6:00 p.m. Supervised Bridge Session (Pairs) at 7:30 p.m.

 

Day 3 : Morning seminar at 10:00 a.m. with prepared hands to illustrate the topic discussed. Afternoon free to explore     the area or relax in the hotel & grounds. Meet Helen in the bar for drinks at 5:30p.m. Dinner at 6:00 p.m. Supervised Bridge Session (Mystery Teams — no need to find team-mates, just play with your usual partner; one of the guests will select the initial move and you’ll find out at the end of the evening who the rest of your team are) at 7:30 p.m.

Prizes awarded at each bridge session
