Social life at Onneley

Although the scope for social activities is nil in these extraordinary times, the club is looking forward to the day when we can once again enjoy social activities with other members and guests.  Our Social Chairman, Bill Burns was disappointed to have to put his schedule of monthly events on hold, but these will return as soon as permissible, and to the extent allowable under whatever health and safety regime we will need to follow.  One in particular that Bill is keen to see return is the Burns Night Supper (well, hardly surprising with that surname!)

A particular initiative planned for this Autumn may just survive unscathed or a little delayed: the return of bridge for members and friends on Tuesday afternoons, including – if the demand is sufficient – some informal tuition for beginners and early intermediates who might like to take their game a little further forward.  This will be led by an experienced player; although he is not an accredited EBU teacher, he will guide those interested through the basics of Acol, the most popular system in use in Britain, and the one that most opponents will be playing.  A series of articles will be published over the coming month or two that may be of interest.
