Leslie Everett Cup 2017-18

This event takes place on Sunday November 5th 2017.  It is a teams competition (scoring by imps) but you will enter as a pair and there is a draw for team-mates.  It's not quite an open draw - we put our guess of the top half of the field in one bucket, and the other half in another bucket - and a pair is drawn from each to make a team.  This gives everyone a chance.  As well as a trophy for the top team to win, there will be some other prizes (awarded on the day).

The event starts at 1330 and will run for about 4 hours (playing something between 24 and 32 boards) and will include a sandwich tea.  The cost is £15 per pair.

There is a sign-up sheet in Cheltenham Bridge Club, but you are also welcome to email your intentions to come to our CTD via
