Welcome to Lincolnshire Contract Bridge Association
Ghost Pairs

The first event of the season, the All Comers Duplicate Pairs, was a relaxed and enjoyable event. The results are now on this website.

Please note that a Poster Set for all County competitions this season is now on this website under Calendar. All County representatives are asked to save and print a copy for their club websitea and notice boards.

Now the new season is up and running we can prepare for the next event, back to the Dunholme Village Hall. The event is the Ghost Pairs and it takes place on Sunday, October 22nd. The start time will be 12.00 and the cost will be £5 per player. Helen Barr will be the Director and light refreshments will be available at very reasonable prices. Please get your entries into me as soon as you can. Either telephone or email me. Glynn.

Change of Rules for the Bainton Trophy

After clarification from the EBU the County Committee has decided to change, slightly, the rules for qualification for the Bainton Trophy. For this season, 2017-2018, 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, 2017-2018, and review them at a later date to judge if any further change is needed.We all hope that this will lead to an increase in attendance at the semi-final stage. Before each heat is played a player may tell the organiser that he/she is not intending to attempt qualification at that heat, so preserving the chance of qualifying for the semi-final at a different heat.

If any help is needed with these changes then get in touch. Glynn

 

 

Lincs League Fixtures 2017-2018

Once again, we have 5 teams in the League. The fixture list will comprise of ten matches in total and we have about eight months to complete these fixtures. This would seem to be a very easy task to complete. Last season the final match was played about a month after the end of the season! Would team captains please make an effort to play the matches in reasonable time.

The fixtures are:- 

Parsons v Elwick, Parsons v Wardell, Millington v Parsons, Marshall v Parsons, Wardell v Elwick, Elwick v Millington, Elwick v Marshall, Wardell v Millington, Marshall v Wardell, Millington v Marshall

The first named team in each fixture is deemed to be the Home team. The Away team captain in each match is responsible for getting in contact with the Home team captain and they will agree and organise the match. The Home captain is responsible for refreshment during the match, A grand buffet is not expected! Results should be passed on to me as soon as it is possible after the fixture is played.

If the Competition is as close this season, as it was last, then the result of the League will be in doubt until the very end. Any problems then get in contact with me. Glynn.

Lincs Gold Draw

Our Chairman, Adrian Underwood, has made the draw for the Lincs Gold Cup as follows:-

Marshall v Parsons, Smith v Wardell, Wokes v Harland, Millington v Elwick

The first named team will be the Home team for each match. The Home team is expected to provide refreshments for the Away side.

Hopefully we can get these matches played over the next few weeks. I will get the semi-finals drawn after that. The competition needs to be finished in reasonable time because the County entry for the Pachabo Cup comes from the finalists. The contact details of the captains are:-

Tollemache November 2017

The County Committee have agreed that there needs to be a process in place to try and help improve the results for the Tollemache team. It also asks potential players to show loyalty to the County by playing in County events over the season.  Tollemache Trophy practice sessions will be arranged and should also be of interest to experienced players who, even if not interested in playing in the Tollemache, want to enjoy a strong session of bridge. Their participation can help the team develop further.

More information of 2017 team and practice sessions will appear on this website in due course.

2017 AGM

The minutes from the 2017 AGM have been added to this website for all members to view.
