Welcome to Lincolnshire Contract Bridge Association
Bainton Qualifiers

Time moves on and the qualifiers for the Bainton Trophy have started. Please remember that your Club is now allowed to hold as many heats for the Bainton as it wishes. The only restriction is that a pair may not try to qualify twice.

Qualifiers from the Heighington heat are:- Roy Hughes and Keith Stewart, Dave and Sally Williams, Roger and Margaret Shelley, Andy Milner and John Luckraft

Random Seeded Pairs

The next event on the County calendar is the Random Seeded Pairs. This will be held on Sunday December 17th at the Dunholme Village Hall starting at 12.00. The cost will be £5 per player. Light refreshments will be available at very reasonable prices. We hope to finish at about 4.00 p.m.

  We need to have entries to me in advance so that we know that we have an even number of pairs and so that we can sort out the seeded pairs from the entrants. This is the last chance you will have to play in an event before Christmas. Please come and support us.

Latest entries :- Brian Smith and Ron Wall

Change of Rules for the Bainton Trophy

The County Committee has decided to change, slightly, the qualification rules for the Bainton Trophy. For this season any affiliated Club may hold as many heats for the competition as it wants to. Players may only play with the same partner in one of those heats. However, a player may play in more than one heat but always with a different partner. If a player attains the qualification standard with more than one partner then that player will have to decide which player to play with in the semi-final.

We will use these new rules for this season, and review at a later date to judge if any further change is needed. We hope that this leads to an even stronger competition at the semi-final stage.

Can all clubs please ensure the have at least one qualifying heat arranged. If any help is needed with these changes then get in touch.
