This bidding system is a mixture between Carrot Club and the Tangerine Club. This is a bridge bidding system based on a weak/strong 1 Club opening, followed by natural sequences, light opening bids of one of a suit containing 9-16 high card points and at least 4 cards in the suit.

1 No Trump is cloned from Carrot Club, showing 12-16 high card points (12-14 without a 4-card Major suit) and allowed to contain 5-card Major suit and/or a 6-card Minor suit. The natural 2 Clubs opening shows 9-16 high card points and at least an unspecified 5-card suit.

The opening bid of 2 Diamonds is a variation of Multi, based on Woodgroves Multi (without the strong variations), and 2 Hearts or 2 Spades is Weak Twos with a 6-card suit. The opening bid of 2 No Trump is a standard 20-21 high card points.
