October- November Bridge Letter 2014




It seems ages since I sat at this computer trying to compose a bridge letter.  I can not complain I suppose as I am between holidays.

Yes we are off again to Tenerife on Tuesday hopefully to lie in the sun and play bridge.

  We went to the ends of the earth in September, well to Llanmadoc on the Gower peninsula.

The schools had just gone back and the caravan site was almost empty and the beaches were deserted.  I don’t think Tel appreciated the isolation and the absolute silence.   We were at a family van where I had taken my children years ago and I suppose the trip down memory lane was good for me but the newness of it discombobulated himself.

 Nevertheless we managed to escape and play bridge at Mumbles,  Swansea and Llanelli bridge clubs.


We were welcomed as usual with welsh warmth and enjoyed our games immensely.


Before we disappear again I should like to congratulate Margaret Crangle on achieving the rank of Premier Life Master.  I remember Margaret when she first started coming to Arden Bridge Club many years ago.






As that time of year is hurtling straight for us once again I have started to look at sites which might produce a few ideas for presents for our bridge playing friends.
