Congratulations to Graham Ledger & Lindsay McDougall on winning the Mollie Simmons Cup.
We collected £310.00 which will be paid to St Michael's Hospice.
There were 11 tables for an extremely enjoyable event. Well done to Chris, Sam and Helen for running and organising the event.
Many members do not realise what goes on at the EBU and how it interreacts with Clubs and Counties.
Well, it is a membership-funded organisation committed to promoting the game of duplicate bridge. It is made up of 39 County Associations each with nominees holding shares based on the number of members within their respective Counties . At its AGM in November, the shareholders elect a Board of eight directors to run the organisation and determine policy in the government of the game and general matters.
As it happens, our club has 2 (Richard Ray & Keith Bennett) of the 3 Shareholders for Hamshire and attend the meetings.
Richard always compiles notes of the meetings as he believes that the membership needs to know what is going on and that the EBU does work on its members behalf. If you wish to read the latest November notes, click on the link on the LHS under EBU Shareholder Notes. May's notes are also there.
The EBU have now updated the videos on the new laws. They are very easy viewing and even if you are not a director, they're worth having a look.
