Barry Voss Trophy 2018
Barry Voss Trophy 2018

The late Barry Voss never considered himself to be a great player but had a great affection for the game. He decided to provide a trophy for a competition involving players with fewer than 500 master points. This year some 15 pairs participated in the event and the winners, Steve Bodle and John Roper can be seen with the Trophy.

Sixty Two  members enjoyed the event which began with  pre-lunch drinks and a Quiz (won by a team captained by Linda Atkinson). This was followed with an excellent Buffet Lunch produced by Geoff Kenyon (with food contributions from various members of the club). Afterwards Two Xmas bridge competitions:  one for Experienced players (won by Maureen Jones and Janet Taylor); and one for Improvers (won by Alan Warr and Weeraman Karunaratne) occurred. Peter Dawson was thanked for completing the complex computer-based  movement and scoring. Finally as Tea and Mince pies were served, a Raffle of Prizes (organised by Janice Elliott and Ann Clark) took place. These prizes were assembled from kind donations by members. The Chairman thanked other individuals for their contributions mentioning in particular, the Cleaning staff and House Committee for creating a warm, comfortable environment to support the ambience of the day.
