The Galway Tournament will take place on May 6th-7th at the Galway Bridge Club, St Mary’s Road.
Since the new year, meetings in Cobh have been running on thursday nights in Whitepoint. Start time is around 20:00. Player strength ranges from 9k down into the 20’s.
We aim to continue the irregular tues/weds nights in Ballyvoloon as well. Details will be updated here when the schedule settles down.
This is the twelfth “issue”, which means I’ve been at this experiment for about a year now. Comments, feedback, and suggestions for change in 2017 are welcome!
Looking forward… January
