Bury Swiss Pairs ends in a dead heat
After 42 boards and the best part of seven hours play, the club's flagship event on Sunday ended with two pairs sharing first place.
John Bloomfield and Andre Gray, who were a last minute entry and parterning each other for the first time, won all seven matches but they had to share the spoils with Roger & Jill Tattersfield who matched their tally of 99VPs. Chris Mallon & Martin Oates were third, ahead of Rosa & Rob Richardson, while another scratch pair, Norman Less & Tim Evans were fifth.
The annual renewal attracted an excellent turn out of 36 pairs to Elmswell and everybody appeared to have an enjoyable time. Many thanks to Jackie Chester for directing, Peter Bushby for scorng, and to all those whose hard work ensured the event ran smoothly.

The inaugural Anne Nunn Trophy competition on Thursday 22 November attracted a good entry with 11 full tables taking part.
There was a selection of cakes and nibbles, accompanied by wine and soft drinks to start followed by the serious business of the evening - the bridge.
By the end of the evening, despite some hiccoughs with the scoring, the clear winners were Jenny and David Price (right - with Anne Nunn who donated the trophy for this new event). A most excellent night.
Latest winners, 23rd May, were Norman Less & John Hancock
