CROCKFORDS CUP & PLATE

Ed Scerri, Steve Eginton, Sally Brock & Barry Myers have won through to the last 8 teams in the prestigious Crockfords Cup, and Dee & Peter Lindon and Derek & Celia Oram are in the last 8 of the Crockfords Plate.  The finals will be held over the weekend of 6th/7th September.   Well done so far - and good luck in September.

BRIGHTON SUCCESSES

Ed Scerri and our new chairman Dick Davey had a very good last day at Swiss Pairs and ended up as 6th out of 287 pairs in a high standard field. Andrew Murphy and partner came 8th.  Within the Swiss Pairs competition, Dave Mullen & John Bowen won the Brighton Plate - awarded to the highest placed "C" stratified pair (below Regional Master).  Andrew Murphy and partner came 3rd and Richard Bowdery and partner were 7th in the Wednesday Open Pairs; Andrew Murphy (again!) and partner came 5th in the Thursday Open Pairs; and Richard Bowdery and partner came 6th in the Friday Open Pairs.  
And to round off the Congress, B&B performed brilliantly in the Swiss Teams.   Bob Holder & Phil Thornton were half of the team who came 5th in the Brighton Four Stars A Final (the top 8 teams from the Qualifier).   Extremely well done!    In the Brighton Bowl, seven B&B Members were in the top 8 teams of 104 .  Tim Rees played in the winning team and Sally Brook & Barry Myers came third.  Joint 7th were Dee & Peter Lindon and Ed Scerri & Gary Jones (both pairs playing with non-BBCBA members).    Very well done all.

WELCOME TO THE NEW CHAIRMAN - DICK DAVEY
WELCOME TO THE NEW CHAIRMAN - DICK DAVEY

Following his election at the recent AGM, we are delighted to welcome Dick Davey as the new Chairman of BBCBA.     Dick is a long time member of BBCBA.    For many years he represented B&B in the Tollemache before his regular partner (Richard Palmer) died, and in the last two years his (non-playing) captaincy has led B&B to victory in the Tolle.    Since moving to Bucks he has clocked up no less than 15 wins in various B&B events - many of them with Richard.   He has also won several national events, including the Corwen, the NICKO and the National Swiss Teams.   We are sure that BBCBA will continue to thrive under Dick's leadership - just as it has over the past 2 years under Anders Wallen chairmanship.    Thank you Anders.    Welcome Dick.

KEITH JARRETT

Members will be saddened to learn of Keith’s death on Saturday 28th June. Our thoughts are with his family and particularly his Wife, Merle.

He has been associated with Berks and Bucks CBA for more than 50 years since he first joined the committee. He held various positions before being invited to become Chairman from 1979 to 1983. More recently he was honoured to be appointed a “Life Member”.

As an EBU tournament Director he worked under Harold Franklin at Congresses in London and other prestigious events. He directed numerous Berks & Bucks county events often meaning that he could not take part himself.

He worked with Lyn Stancer in establishing Lyncroft Bridge Club, which later became the original Gerrards Cross Bridge Club. With Merle he taught hundreds to play bridge and founded Cookham Bridge Club where some of their pupils still play. In addition to representing both clubs in the league of 8, he also played for the ‘A’ teams of New Amersham and Austenwood.
