Fewster Rosebowl
Fewster Rosebowl

Fewster Rosebowl Report.

On the 23rd August an impressive number of 58 members took part in the Fewster Rosebowl.  Players in this competition were seeded according to their NGS grading and a draw made such that the higher seeded were paired with the lower seeded.  Inevitably this meant that players will not have played with their partners before so it was a great way to meet and get to know other members.

It was clearly evident throughout the evening that everyone was having a good time regardless of how their scores were going.  All of the senior and experienced players were encouraging and supportive of their partners who in turn gained in their bridge knowledge and confidence.  At the end of the session the well-deserved winners were our club secretary Stephanie Sutcliffe and one of our premier players David Briggs.  Many congratulations to Stephanie and David.

Several participants have since said how much they enjoyed the evening, the friendly atmosphere and the event in general.  So well done to all those involved and particularly to our newest members who took part.
