Essex / Herts GP Weekend - July 2016

Well done to Peter & Ann Clark who ran away with the Swiss Pairs. Congratulations also to Chris Megahey & John Sutcliffe who came 7th in a field of 108. Not much Essex success in the Swiss Teams, sadly. 

The seats at both events were much more comfortable than in previous years, but nontheless fewer bums turned out to sit on them, so the message may not have got out. Bear this in mind for the September Essex/Herts Congress

Essex A Team Captain

After 5 years service, Peter Oake has decided to step down as captain of the Essex A Team. The ECBA Committee extend their thanks to Peter for all his hard work over the years.  

Summer Seniors - July 2016

In a markedly improved turnout compared to last year, 33 pairs contested the first session of this year's Seniors Cup. Well done to the winners -   Graham Foster & Dennis Johnson!

Chris Chorley & Paddy Murray were runners-up and Pat Johnson & Peter Scotting were third.

Eve Goblets - 2016-17

Now the new season has a couple of events under its belt, the Eve Goblets Victor Ludorum Competition is worth reporting on. Click this box for the latest standings.

Friendly League - 2016
Friendly League - 2016

After the final round of matches on "Party Night", Tuesday 21st June, congratulations to the Danbury team who emerged as the winners after a closely-fought season, with Chelmsford in second place and Southend & Leigh in third, of the 6 teams-of-eight that took part. 

While this is not an official ECBA inter-club competition, it is warmly supported by the County as a way of encouraging developing players into teams events. Thanks to Graham Foster for organising it!

The photo shows Graham with Barbara Osborn, the Danbury Captain, holding the trophy. 

The ECBA is hoping to run similar "friendly" leagues (but teams-of-four, and not necessarily associated with particular clubs) for developing players who want to play teams bridge. Please contact Bernie Hunt if you are interested. 

Obit: Vernon Madge

We are sorry to announce the death on Sunday 12th June of Vernon Madge. Vernon was aged 81 and had been a member of "The Good Guys" - a team that has played in the West Essex League for many years - and was also a regular at Loughton Bridge Club, though he had moved away to Bath where he also played bridge. Anyone with more information might like to let the ECBA webmaster know. 

Corwen Trophy - June 2016

A sensational result for Paul Spencer & Marc Chawner, who came 3rd out of 98 pairs in the Corwen Trophy, the inter-county pairs championship held in Birmingham over the weekend 4th/5th June. Three other Essex pairs took part amongst a very strong field and Laurie & Stephanie Burtt did well to score above 50%. Click here for the final results
