Congratulations to the 240 players and to the staff of 15 restaurants for creating such a wonderful day in Guildford.

An enormous thank you to Lynn Paynter who has tirelessly given her time over several months to create the best Cafe Bridge in the UK.

Lynn and her team of volunteer helpers, with specific mention and thanks to Jo Owens and Valerie Taylor, have raised the enormous amount of £5,300 for three wonderful charities.

£2,500 for Breast Cancer Now, £2,500 for LinkAble and £300 for Ebussi.

Victor, our Director, who is the world's expert on Directing and Scoring Cafe Bridge events was a bit scared beforehand, since there were a lot of venues for the number of players, the map area was quite large, new venues might turn out to have bad phone reception and we had a large number of new scorers.

 As it turned out, none of Victor's fears materialized.  Maybe there are now more experienced people whom the new scorers can ask for help than in past years. The lead players that Lynn chose should also take some credit for this technical and logistical achievement. A big thank you to Caroline Bottoms, Sasha Chamberlain our scorers and Trevor who briefed all the players in the use of the incredible Brian App.

Congratulations to all the players and the winners of the 2017 Cafe Bridge, Jerry Woolf and Reggie Lewis, who had volunteered to be on the reserve list and were needed on the day.

Cafe Bridge lives on thanks to Lynn, who can now sleep at night knowing it was superbly organised.
