Eastern Counties League

After many successful years as captain of the Essex C team, Maureen Vede is standing down with effect from 1st January 2018. We would like to take this opportunity to    thank    Maureen  for her great service to the county over these years.  We will be recruiting a new C-team captain as soon as possible, if any experienced squad player thinks they might be interested in taking on the role, please speak to Chris Taylor, Robert Elliott or Bernie Hunt in the first instance. The time commitment is not very great, you would need to attend meetings of the Selection Committee once  a year (next one 13th January), then make C team selections (initially with assistance from the other selectors) for the seven Eastern Counties league fixtures for the coming year (and possibly one or two other inter-county competitions such as the Metropolitan Cup).

Eastern Counties League

Essex played Hertfordshire away as follows:

A Team lost 15-5        B Team won 16-4        C Team lost 18-2

Well done B Team (B Hunt & P Mollison; W Coldham & P O'Gara; P Scotting & P Johnson; V Mollison & B Davies) and better luck to the A and C team for their next match in January.

Chelmsford City Pairs - Charity Event

Back in 2012, when Chelmsford won city status, bridge player David Wing undertook a sponsored cycle tour of 51 cities in England presenting a cup to each City’s EBU affiliated club to raise money for charity. Chelmsford Bridge Club honours David’s considerable achievement by running an open charity event each year.

This year the Chelmsford City Charity Swiss Pairs raised £200 for the Columbus Special School and Lennox Children's Cancer Fund Charities.  A big Thank You to everyone who supported the event.

Change of Webmaster

After 10 years of bridge, and 3 years as ECBA Webmaster, Theo Todman is retiring from both activities to focus on his philosophical studies. Petra Bromfield has volunteered to take over. She thereby joins the ECBA Committee. Petra will receive emails sent to the Webmaster, and Theo will forward on anything sent to him personally.

A big   THANK YOU ♥  to Theo for all the time, knowhow and dedication you gave to the ECBA.  We wish you every success and enjoyment for your studies and hope to see you back at the bridge table now and again.
