HIWCBA Members In Gold Cup Final

Last weekend saw two HIWCBA members - Peter Crouch & Jeremy Dhondy - who had both competed in the first HIWCBA event of the season (the candover teams),  shun the second (the HIWCBA Mixed and married pairs at Crosfield hall - see below)  in order to compete in the BGB Gold Cup finals - with the equivalent result to our own candover teams result. i.e. Peter's team triumphed over Jeremy's team  who were runners up. Congratulations and well done to both. Hopefully this will inspire more HIWCBA teams to enter the competition - although in practice some dont get very far!

Candover Congratulations - 2018-2019 HIWCBA Season Up And Running

The 2018-2109 HIWCBA season is now upon us and has has started with an exciting, well directed  Candover Teams (full results here), in 'Danish' teams format which worked flawlessly and resulted in the top four teams being within 5 Vps of each other with one match to go. Team Cowling (Miles Cowling & Bob McRobert, Peter Crouch & Geoff Oldfield) triumphed, beating Team Lamont by more than Team Dhondy beat Team Baker. Congratulations to all and especially the director Mike Kinsey who somehow also managed to play in the event.
The winning team were not photographed at the event but some 2017-18 trophies were presented at tea - see above.
All county league and knockout competitions have been drawn and all HIWCBA events up until the end of 2018 can be entered now (as highlighted above) The first Dave Huggett seminar takes place on the 30th September - these seminars are always enjoyed by all who attend - so dont miss out.  The next HIWCBA pairs event in Romsey - the mixed and married pairs - is coming up on the 14th October. The HIWCBA simple systems competitions in clubs also occurs at the end of october - clubs please confirm when you wish to hold a heat
