2015-2016 Calendar

The 2015-2016 season is on the horizon. After the disappointments of last season let's try and make this one a good one! The events for the forthcoming season have been streamlined. Those that did not attract support have been culled. This means that there are fewer events to enter and should draw bigger attendances.

   We start off this year with the Random Seeded Pairs on Sunday September 20th at Dunholme Village Hall at 1.30 p.m. This event will be Directed by Helen Barr. Light refreshments will be available during the afternoon and the entry cost will be £5 per player. We have amended the rules for next season. You must enter each event at least 7 days prior to the event. After this date you must get in contact with me to find out if you can play. This is because we had no idea, last season, how many people wanted to play and we had to cancel some events at the very last moment, when we were at Dunholme. It is more than likely that you will be able to play but, please, do not leave it until the last moment.

   My telephone number is 01652654872 or e-mail gloria@prescott78.orangehome.co.uk.

   As an experiment we are holding our second event at the City of Lincoln Bridge Club. That will be the Allcomers Duplicate Pairs on Sunday October 11th  at 1.30 p.m. cost £5 each. Remember, stronger players are expected to pair up with weaker players to encourage them to have a go at County events.

   I will try to get the events on the County website asap and then Club Reps can take a copy and put them on the Club noticeboards. Please try and make this season more popular than last season. Once again the motto must be use it or lose it. Glynn

County League and Lincs Gold

   As well as the normal events which are always held at the weekend we still hace the other two important County Competitions. These are the County League and the Lincs Gold competition.

 

    The County League consists of a match against every other team in the League. The matches are arranged by agreement between team Captains and take place between October and May. We had 5 teams in the League last year and the League winners were not known until the very last match. Each match consists of 24 boards, 12 boards against each pair and is short enough to be played in the evening.

  The Lincs Gold competition is the premier County teams event. It is played for Green Points and is a knock-out competition. Again, we had 5 teams enter last season but it would be nice if we could attract a few more teams. This competition is played in players homes between October and May. The winners of the competition are entitled to play in the national Pachabo competition. Also, the more teams that enter the more Green Points can be awarded. If you have not entered these then give it a go. The cost is £16 per team for the County League and £20 per team for the Lincs Gold.

2015-2016 Season

It hardly seems possible but we are about to start the 2015-2016 bridge season. I will be organising the calendar for the new season in the near future and presenting it, for approval, to the Management Committee at the next meeting. We have decided that entries need to be in 7 days in advance of the event for the new season. This is to avoid having to cancel events at the very last moment and meaning less inconvenience to players that turn up at the venue and have to be turned away. Late entries will be accepted at the Competition Secretary's discretion!

     Please keep looking at the website. The fixture list should appear in a few weeks time.

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 gloria@prescott78.orangehome.co.uk.

   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.
