By Rory Egan
Chairperson of the Dublin Summer Bridge Congress
Friday the 28th to Sunday the 30th of July
Westmanstown Sports and Conference Centre,
Westmanstown, Co Dublin
We are delighted to announce a long term sponsorship and partnership with Home Instead Senior Care. Many of you will be familiar with Home Instead Senior Care as they have been great supporters of Bridge around the country. They have, not only agreed to become our main sponsors for the years ahead, but have an exciting project to help Bridge clubs around the country with cards and other supports where they can.
Our new venue, Westmanstown Sport & Conference Centre, Westmanstown, Co Dublin, have a first class venue, experience in holding large Bridge competitions and have agreed to provide excellent Buffet Meals for our breaks and Coffee, Tea and a Full Bar are also available.
Once again, we hope to encourage players at every level to participate in the fun that congresses usually generate on so many levels.
To this end, we are hosting separate Novice and Mixed Pairs on the Friday, Intermediate A, Intermediate B, Area Master and Congress Pairs on the Saturday and separate Novice, Intermediate A, Intermediate B, Area Master and Congress Teams on the Sunday.
The committee are delighted that our Tournament Director - Fearghal O'Boyle will, once again, be putting together the best TD team in the country.
We kick off the event on the Friday evening with a Mixed Pairs competition. We are also moving our Novice Pairs competition to Friday night this year to make it more welcoming to less experienced players.
For those of you who would prefer not to play in the formal competition, there will be an Open Pairs competition on the Friday night and on the Sunday also, where pre-booking is not necessary.

We are still accepting sponsors for individual competitions from €250 to €500. If you know a company, friend or family member who would be generous enough to sponsor one of our competitions, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Any person who is successful in getting us sponsorship for any of the competitions we are holding will receive a free entry for themselves and their partner for that competition.
The Dublin Summer Bridge Congress has been a fantastic addition to the Irish Bridge Calendar and we hope to continue to provide fun and competitive Bridge around this time for many years to come. However, we do require sponsors and patrons to help us in our task.
If you feel that Bridge has given you something extra in your life and you are in a position to support us, we would be thrilled if you became a Patron of the Dublin Summer Bridge Congress.
The cost of being a patron is just €100 and all our patrons will be acknowledged in our literature and will be given free entry to all their competitions over the weekend as a thank you for their participation.
Many thanks for your support. We really appreciate the help and hope that you enjoy this next congress as much as the last two.
