This page shows old "News Items" published in, or relating to, the calendar year 2013. It includes hyperlinks to the detailed Results, where available.
Items are in reverse-date sequence: the most recent first.
Your Web Master may in the near future initiate a project to sort these annual pages into a more meaningful Archive, but so far all that has been done is to tidy them up and make the context apparent. In the interim, suggestions from the membership are welcome!

Further congratulations to the team, who along with their Club teammates - Richard Register, Graham Foster, Yvonne Dias and Allan Greenstein - are the first recipients of the new Ray Cornell Prize and will represent Essex at the 2013 Garden Cities Qualifier.
Thanks to the kind generosity of Mrs Barbara Cornell, the ECBA is able to establish the “Ray Cornell Prize” which will be presented annually to the club whose teams achieve the best combined results and are going forward to represent Essex in the Garden Cities. The award is aimed at helping to offset the expenses of the eight team members involved. Any remainder will be used by the club to help their club players to enter ECBA events.
