Festive fun

The Deva Christmas Party was held on Sunday 3rd December. Canapes, punch, games, competitions and (of course) bridge, all finished off with the Deva's traditional delicious food and drink - what more could anyone want?

Well, prizes given by Santa and his elf of course!

Waterworth Cup
Waterworth Cup

The Waterworth Cup is the Merseyside & Cheshire Bridge Association's pairs championship. Its origins are lost in the mists of time but it also acts as our county's qualifier for the EBU's Corwen Trophy which is contested by the leading pairs from each county. In this year's Waterworth Cup it was very pleasing to see Deva players dominating the top four places:

  1. Tracy Capal and Paddy Murphy (pictured below receiving the trophy from John Hampson)
  2. Mark Weeks and Stuart Matthews
  3. Julian Merrill and Paul Roberts and
  4. Chris Pope and Peter Kaufmann.

Belated congratulations also go to Liz Commins and David Stevenson who made up one half of the second placed team (out of 75!) in the Worcester Congress.

Enhancement project update

An update on the enhancement project is now available in the members only section of the website.

Paper copies of the update are also available in the club and copies are also being sent by email to all those members who have an email address listed on the club website.
