Lincs Gold Trophy

   Unfortunately, only four teams have entered the Lincs Gold this season. The draw has been made, and is:-

     Ron Wall  played at home against Roy Hughes  Result :- Wall won by 63 IMPs
     Nick Hunter is at home to Mo Parsons.
     In a close match Nick had a narrow victory, winning by just 2 IMPs. This leaves the final to be played in the near future.
     It would be helpful if these matches could be played some time over the next couple of months.
     The losers of each semi-final will meet to contest the Maplethorpe Trophy.

Annual Championships

  The Annual Championships took place over the weekend of March 22/23. The Pairs event was held on Saturday. Twenty-two Pairs entered. The Qualifying heat was won by Maurice Ladlow and Mo Parsons in the N/S direction with a score of 63.18% and by Malcolm Hammond and Judith Wall in the E/W direction. They scored 62.95%. The main final was won by Brian Smith and Ron Wall who scored 58.8%. The consolation final was won by Nick Dyer and Mike Perry with a score of 60.74%.

   The Teams Championship was held on Sunday. 12 Teams took part. Roy Hughes/Dennis Mellor/Debbie Burton/John Gaunt won the Qualifier. The  main final was claimed by Maurice Lynn/John Hill/Elaine Proctor/Christine Davison with a score of 55 VPs. The consolation final was won by Mike Llewellyn/Megan Williams/Vic Llewellyn/Stuart Knox with a score of 70 VPs.

   Congratulations to all those who were successful over the weekend. Thank you to all those who participated. Without your support there cannot be a County organisation. However, it has to be said that that the level of entries is at an all time low and that very little support is coming from some areas of the County. The NGS website data base tells us that the County has about 650 members. To get about 70 of these members to enter the major County event of the season is, really, very poor indeed. Once again we will have to go back and discuss where we go from here. All suggestions, positive of course, are encouraged and wanted. On a positive note, it would appear that moving the starting to 11.00 a.m. on both days was well received. This may well be continued.

   Thank you to Helen Barr for the way that she directed the two events. Both days went very smoothly without any problems. Well done to Helen.



Annual General Meeting

Another year is quickly drawing to a close. I am coming to the end of my term as Chairman of the County Organisation. In addition to this I agreed to take on the role of Competition Secretary so that events could continue throughout the year. One of the jobs of the Competition Secretary is to collect in the various cups and trophies that are awarded every year, get them engraved with the names of the new winners and get them presented at the A.G.M.

   I would like to get any cups and trophies that you have won handed in to me by the end of this month so that I can pass them on to the engraver. So, if you have a trophy then could you get it to me in the near future. If this is not possible then get in touch with me, 01652654872, and we can sort out the collection. Please do this soon so that we are not rushing about trying to get things collected in. Glynn.

Any News or Views?
  I am always keen to know about either your views about Bridge in the County or if you have any news to publicise to the other members of the County. If you have then give me a call on 01652654872 or send me an e-mail at

   It is always nice to know what you, the member, thinks about what we are doing, or probably not doing, for you. For example, where should we be thinking of playing our County events from 2014? Should we stay at Dunholme? Should we play at Scunthorpe? Will the new facilities at the City of Loincoln Club be such that we could hold events there? Let me know your thoughts or have a chat with your Club representative. We need your views so that we can try and improve things for you. Glynn.
Club Director Training Courses 2014
  After applying to the EBU, Scunthorpe Bridge Club has been selected as a venue for Club Director Training Courses for 2014. It is our chance to show everyone the facilities that we have in the County.

   Four dates have been set aside for these Courses. The first is on Saturday, April 12th. This is on Essentials. The cost is 38 each.

 Next is Book Rulings on Saturday, May 10th. This one costs 43 each.

 Third is Judgement Rulings on Saturday, June 14th. Again the price is 43 each.

 Finally on Saturday, July 19th. is the Assessment. This is the most expensive and costs 49 each.

    As you can see, the Courses are all one-day. They start at about 10.00 a.m. and finish mid-afternoon. Light refreshments will be provided.

  I would urge all members who are interested in Directing  to get onto these Courses. See your Club Committee and get them to support you with the costs involved.

  The good news is that the EBU have a very good offer on with these Courses at the moment. Affiliated Clubs are invited to send a second Club member to a TD course FREE OF CHARGE where the Club sends a full paying member to any of the the Club TD Courses. The offer is on a "like for like" basis - so when a Club books a place (from one to four Courses) it receives the equivalent free for another member of the same Club. To take advantage of the scheme both the paying member and free member must be booked at the same time and the booking must be made by the registered Secretary of the Club.

  Hopefully some of you will take advantage of this offer with the full support of your Club. Obviously it is to the benefit of every Club to have as many players trained as Directors as we can.
