TEACHERS TRAINING WEEKEND – The Teaching Committee has organised a teachers training weekend for 21-22 April 2012. If anyone is interested in training as a bridge teacher, please contact CBAI Headquarters (01-4929666 and talk to Fionuala. If you are to believe all the publicity about early mass retirements in prospect, all our teachers and clubs are going to be under so much pressure with people anxious to learn and play bridge with us. Grab them.

JUNIORS: We have a schools programme which covers a lot of schools but we must be alert to encourage any youngsters with an interest in bridge, whose schools are not in the programme. Contact CBAI HQ directly (01-4929666 and they will take it from there; so much can be achieved these days without leaving the computer!! The Junior Committee successfully piloted “On-line” trials this year; with so many of our young players studying or working at a distance from their partners, it is the sensible way forward.

FIXTURES: 2-4 March. Torc Congress. Entries – Marjorie Barton 066-9764726.

3-11 March. Bankers Congress, Entries – Bettina Stefanini 087-2180048

Bridge results and news from city and county affiliated bridge clubs to Kay Molloy by Friday each week for inclusion. Call 056-7721639, 086-1638643 or email:menahouse@ eircom.net.
