Monday Afternoon Bridge

We have introduced an extra session to the club's program - each Monday afternoon commencing at 1.30pm a Supervised Session will be held. We hope this proves a successful addition to our timetable.


The committee is seeking expressions of interest in the role of our club (technical) administrator. If any member is interested in volunteering for this role please contact either Austin Driscoll or Toni Gorman.


The CCBC Recorder is Kerry Johnman who has accepted the committee's unanimous nomination.
The Role statement of Recorder for CCBC has been revisited and altered to be more in line with NSWBA description of the position. A copy of the Roles and Responsibilities is in a white folder on the East side of the club.

I have placed a grey set of drawers near the folders - one drawer is marked "RECORDER" and your written communications can be placed there. If you need an envelope please ask for one.

Additionally I have dedicated one drawer to mail, so any mail you have can be placed there. Letters to the committee should be addressed to the Secretary.

If you have any questions please ask.


Last Saturday (our Open Pairs) Ann Gunner put her car key on a side table. She could not find it at the end of play. She thinks that someone has inadvertently picked up her key. Would all those players who played last Saturday please check their bags? Many thanks.


Saturday, September 9, saw the staging of our Open Pairs Championship. We had a total of ten tables and the event was directed by John McIlrath who performed the task with his usual degree of expertise. I am pleased to announce that our champions for 2017 are: Rhonda Innes and Kerry Murray. The runners up were Adriana Smith& Colin Shore while in third place were Garry & Sally Clarke. The top three pairs will represent the club at the State Open Pairs Championships to be held in Sydney in November.I would like to thank all those who turned up and contributed to a very enjoyable day.

Alerting Rule Changes - 1 August 2013

When you open 1C or a natural 1NT there will be no need to alert the bid. Instead, the responder must announce the meaning of the bid.

1NT Give the strength range, 12-14, 15-17 or whatever applies

1C The announcement depends on the system:

For a natural system, the responder announces the minimum length guaranteed.
For a strong club system, the point range is announced.
For a club opening with multiple meanings, it is announced ‘unusual’.
