Scarborough break in November

It’s about now I ask if there are any members of the Bassingham bridge club if they would like to join Jayne and myself as well as many of our regulars to play bridge in Scarborough in November.

The dates are from Sunday 3rd November to Thursday 7th for four nights.

I can supply more details if you are interested and please note there are limited places.

Annual dinner

As I’ve mentioned before we have the Bassingham Bridge Club annual dinner on the 4th May at the Bentley hotel.
We have a number of guests already going but would like a few more to support this event.

The cost of the dinner is £30 per person for three courses and has been subsidised by the club to make it good value.

If you would like to come please pay me and also give me your menu choices.

Starters are carrot and coriander soup or a smoked salmon roulade.

Mains are blade of beef with mash and seasonal vegetables, chicken in a Dijon cream with fondant potatoes and seasonal vegetables or tomato and basil gnocchi.

Puddings are sticky toffee pudding or a lemon and white chocolate roulade.

Please support us if you can!

Knock Out Final

My teammates, Andy, Derrick and Jayne, played brilliantly to win the final of the knockout against a formidable team made up of the Coles and Haslams.

It was a wonderful day made special not only by Sue Milner’s delicious cooking but we also celebrated Derrick and Judith’s 60th wedding anniversary: what an achievement!

Thanks to all,

Curry bridge roundup!

Congratulations to Peter and Alan who won on the evening, even with all their shenanigans. Well done!

Generally I believe it was a great success.
Thanks to Jackie and her team which included two of her sons. They went to a lot of effort to make sure everything worked well.

Curry….. what can I say….. Superb! Thanks Cash.

Also thanks to everyone who came to make the evening so much fun and others like Barry and Leslie who do a lot to help behind the scenes.

Happy Easter,

Curry Bridge

We are looking forward to seeing all of you who have put their names down to play and eat on Wednesday evening. 6.30pm.

For those of you who may need advice on where we are playing it is Oscar’s Inn, 105 Balderton Gate in Newark.
If you turn off London Road onto Sherwood Avenue, Balderton Gate is the first road on the right and the pub is on the left.

Curry Bridge Update

Me being vague!
I didn’t put my contact details in, The more intelligent of you will have worked it out (that wouldn’t include me!).

Curry bridge evening Wednesday 27th March 6.30 for 7pm

You will be pleased to know that we are organising another Curry Bridge Evening, this time it is at Oscar’s Inn, in Newark by kind invitation of Jackie Jackson.
(Not to be confused with Oscar’s Restaurant)

This doesn’t mean it is free! It will cost you £12 per head. You will be pleased to know that I believe she has a very good chef.

There are only 36 places (as the room is not as large as Newark) and the places will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

You will need to pay me, in the same way as the Annual Dinner, and my details are Frederick Myers, sort code 30-97-95, account number 00232850.
