NEARLY 1,000 RAISED IN OUR SIM PAIRS

78 pairs from five clubs - Bude, Godolphin, Liskeard, St. Austell and Wadebridge - played in the first Cornwall Charity Simultaneous Pairs on Tuesday 21 June. The leading six pairs were :                  

1.    Henry Gompertz & Jenny Cant (W'bridge)    67.93%

2.    Brian Colvin & Roger Venn (St. Austell)    67.55%

3.    Geoff Warren & Joe Bryant (Godolphin) 65.88%

4.    Mike Booth & Colin Pote  (Liskeard)   64.8%

5.    Frances & Jim Barker (Godolphin) 64.34%

6.    Alan Biggs & Rob Mabley (Bude) 62.0%

Congratulations to Henry & Jenny who just pipped Brian & Roger in a very close finish. And thank you to everyone, clubs and players, for supporting this event in aid of the Children's Hospice "Precious Lives" Appeal. Although I am still waiting for the donations from three clubs to be sent to me, the provisional amount raised is £781.00 with an additional 25% Gift Aid making the total £976.25 

THIS IS A TRULY MAGNIFICENT EFFORT BY ALL CONCERNED.

Introduction
Introduction

There are currently 13 bridge clubs in Cornwall that are affiliated to the English Bridge Union (EBU). They meet on a variety of weekday evenings. 

Most county events are held on Sundays between September and April at Ladock village hall, just east of Truro. Postcode is TR2 4PG.

The County hosts one event open to all members of the EBU. In September, the three day Cornish Congress is held in the attractive seaside town of Bude on the extreme North coast of the county. The weekend includes two one-day green-pointed events and a Championship Pairs on the Friday.

Visitor to Cornwall?

As the most popular county in England in which to holiday, all our clubs are happy to welcome visiting bridge players for some mental stimulation after a relaxing day on the beach or walking the coastline! Again, contact the appropriate club secretary via Cornish Bridge Clubs page so they know to expect you.
