Unfortunately we recently lost the Mollie Simmons Cup to Newbury for the second year running. This is for teams of 16 mixed or married pairs.
Our team was Claire & Martin Bevan, Helen & Chris Kinloch, Fil & Manny Navarro, Tracey Adams & Steve Tearle, Ann Goss & Iain Climie, Marian Rudd & Keith Williams, Sandra Ruffell & George Collins and Jane Rutherford & John Fairhurst.
However, once again it was played in a friendly spirit and we were provided with an excellent tea.
Well Done to Newbury.
The AGM was held recently.
Helen's report along with the final year end accounts are now available to view by logging into your membership.

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.

Chris Kinloch, a grand master and former chairman of the club, runs beginners’ classes on Tuesday evenings from 7.15pm to about 10.15pm from September to July. These are open to members and non-members alike. There is usually about half an hour of teaching,with the rest of the evening devoted to playing and discussing hands based on the topics covered.
Students always receive a hand-out of notes on the session and solutions to problems from the previous week, plus some new problems to tackle for the next session.They also receive copies of the hands they have played, together with commentaries.

People can then move onto Thursday evening which is a gentle introduction to Duplicate.Help and advice is always on hand from one or two other experienced players. People can always come without a partner as the organisers will play if necessary. There are often nine or ten tables. Thursday members are encouraged to try Monday and Friday evenings.
