Social weekend in Paignton
Social weekend in Paignton

We had a record 54 attendees for our autumn social weekend at Paignton.  Not eveyone played bridge but it was good to see so many partners enjoying the seaside and social atmosphere.  Here are our bridge players - still smiling but looking forward to having a rest!  It was nice to see some 'first timers' and hope they will join us again.

We are booked to come again next year: dates are 28th to 30th October 2016.  Mark your calendars now.

Welcome to the Sixties
Welcome to the Sixties

Congratulations to Frank on reaching the ripe old age of 60, and for his imaginative choice of cakes.  Maybe Gina had something to do with this too?  There was a wonderful turnout for the birthday celebration.  Note Frank's style of bidding; players beware!

New Master Point Rule

From 1st January 2016, Master Points will only be awarded for pairs events in which all the competitors are scheduled to play at least 70% of the boards used in the movement.  As an example, when the intention is to play 22 boards in a session, no more than 30 boards should be in play.
