TGIF

The result of the AGM ballot is in and by a landslide (in your dreams Theresa May!) the winner is Friday evening. Yes, that's a comfortable hold for the Friday party with a 69% share of the vote and Wednesday coming a poor second on 14%. Evenings were the choice of 80% of the 55 voters.

You must have been a beautiful baby

Did you know that you can put a thumbnail picture on this website which will show up on your member and results pages?

Okay, you may not be Bing Crosby but it is still nice to be able to match a name to a face for someone you don't recognise. You can either add a pic yourself or email it to me (webmaster@devabridgeclub.co.uk).

Here's mine.

Congress success

Congratulations to David Stevenson & Liz Commins and Stuart Matthews (not pictured) & Mark Weeks who won the Scarborough Trophy at the Yorkshire Congress.

 

Liz and David also won the teams event at the  Oxfordshire Congress playing with a pair from London.

Liz and David have now added the Cambria Cup (The Welsh Bridge Union's mixed pivot teams knockout event) to their haul as part of an all-Deva team with Chris Pope, Paddy Murphy and Barry Jones.

And finally (for now at least)...

Liz and David are pictured with Paddy Murphy and Tracy Capal holding the trophy for the Liverpool Open Teams competition.

Championship Pairs

Belated congratulations are due to Di Knight and Peter Nickson who, on the 17th of March, retained the title that they won in 2016.

2018 AGM - choosing date and time

The club's annual general meeting is usually held on a Friday evening with the incentive of free bridge after the meeting to encourage people to attend.

In a further bid to increase the numbers of members attending and participating in this important decision making event the club is now consulting people to see if a change in day/time would help. You will find a brief questionnaire, along with a box for completed forms, at the rear of the main club room.

Please do make your views known!
