Andrew Robson Event Photos
Andrew Robson Event Photos

On 26 October HBC hosted an evening with Andrew Robson.  The evening hugely enjoyable and a great success.

Photos by Francis Kelly and Alan Setchell can be found on the left hand side of the website.

Overheard, "problem is, if you bid it like Andrew Robson you've then got to play it like him as well!"

Swiss Pairs Winners
Swiss Pairs Winners

Very well done Keith and Maureen Norman, winners of the recent Swiss Pairs, winning five out of their six matches to finish with an excellent 85/120. 

David and Edwina Mills were 2nd, only three points behind and also winning five out of six matches. The ascenders prize went to Peter Bellord and George Wilbourn, who, after a slow start, picked up 38 VPs in two rounds in the second half.

There were some good results from the married couples, four out of seven finished in the top ten.
