Please note that the Club Championship Pairs, which incorporates the Andrew Trevanion Memorial Silver Plate and Pat Townend Trophy will now be played on Sunday14th April 2019.
Congratulations to Pearl Murphy, the club chairwoman, who has won the Nelson Rose Bowl - the YCBA Ladies Teams of Four trophy - with partner Val Gibson and teammates Bev Godfrey and Nichola Cockerill-Smith. Heather Hobson was in the second placed team.
I know it's early days yet, but the Club will soon have to say how many teams we will be entering.
Assuming that most of this year's team members are willing to play in the new season, we expect to be able enter the six teams again.
However in order to be sure that we CAN raise 6 teams, we need to know that we have 24 pairs PLUS some more to cover for all eventualities.
Shortly, a notice will be put up on the YCBA League Notice Board, inviting you to put up your names... preferably as pairs, but individuals are welcome
to show their interest.
Early listing helps us to make up pairs, with those pairs having plenty of opportunity to hone their partnerships through the summer months.

The EBU has completed its decennial review of the laws
and issued a poster that can be accessed by clicking on the header.
The Club TDs are in the process of familiarising themselves
with the new rule book
but please make allowance for a 'bedding in' period.
However, the laws have been simplified where possible.
A new Health & Safety policy document has been produced, thanks to Vivien Aizlewood.
Please click on the heading to open the document.
Any comments should be passed on to a committee member.
The Committee, in consultation with the Tournament Directors, have agreed that evening sessions will continue to start promptly at 19.00 and, as far as possible, will end by 22.30. Based on the number of pairs, the TDs will choose a movement to allow this 22.30 finish and will manage the movement accordingly, including reducing the length of the break if need be.
The TD may also remove a board if a table has fallen behind. Persistently slow pairs will be warned in the first instance and may then be subject to a procedural penalty.
To help the TD to achieve this, pairs are asked to be at the table and ready to play by 18.55 at the latest. All pairs are expected to stay until the end of the session (unless sitting out the last round)
Any queries or comments please speak to a member of the Committee
A Maintenance Book has been placed on the Noticeboard in the hallway of number 4. When any work on the Bridge Club property is required please make a note of the job in the book and add your name so the Maintenance Group can come back to you with any queries.
