It all started one day down the pub when my friend Darran asked "Does anyone know how to play bridge?". Well, I did and thus the monster was created. At first there were only four of us. Now it's out of control. Everybody wants to play. And it's addictive - as soon as we have a foursome together the cards come out.
The scheduled meeting is at 3.00 o'clock every Saturday afternoon at the pub. We generally play for 1 penny for 10 points - hey, on a good day I can win as much as £1.50! The whole thing is very unstructured, without permanent partnerships. Fancy a game? Just turn up and we'll try to fit you in.
Here's some snapshots of the guys.

|Dave The Ledger - Accountant. Our best player|
|Andy - radioligist and his girlfriend Rebecca - student nurse. Beccy and I like to play together !!|
|Darran - Europe's largest manufacturer of fortune cookies (really!)|
|Steve Austin, the six million (Australian) dollar man - all spent on his mouth !!|
|Yours truly, the man who created the monster!!|
