Annual Calendar

Over the weekend I have had a couple of enquiries about the 2014-2015 County Calendar and whether it is ready , or not.

As you will be aware, the attendance at the 2014 AGM did not reach 30 people. This meant that the meeting was not quorate. It had to be held over three weeks later, as an EGM. As a result of this my proposed Calendar for 2014-2015 was ratified nearly a month late. Furthermore, my computer knowledge is extremely limited. I have tried to update the 2013-2014 poster set but have failed dismally. I am told that I need to know about something called PDFs, which is foreign to me. However, I know a man that can. I am going to see him this week. If everything goes well I hope that the Poster set for 2014-2015 will be updated some time this week.

The man who can, could, and the posters are now available for download from the menu bar on the left (under Calendar . . .Calendar and Poster Set 2014-2015) or by clicking here. smiley

  I can tell you that the first event of the season will be the Random Seeded Pairs. It will be held at Dunholme Village Hall on Sunday, September 14th at 1.30 p.m. This event pairs stronger players with weaker players and is run as a Teams event. The pairing is done by random draw. As a result, pre-entry is essential so let me have your entry asap and try to bring another pair with you. It is an ideal event for those wanting to be introduced to County events. Thanks, 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 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.
Competition Entries

A new season is about to begin. I am hoping that the County will get more entries for our Competitions this year. The Calendar of events will be available in the near future and then you can start to make your plans for the next twelve months.

  Other Competitions are still going ahead. The County League is still in operation. This competition involves playing each other Team in the League once over the whole season. Each match is played over 24 board, 12 boards against each of the two pairs. The matches are usually played in the home of one of the Home side.

  The other Competition is the Lincs Gold Cup. This is a straight knock-out Competition played over 24 boards in the initial stages. It is a Green Pointed event and the County entry for the Pachabo  comes from the finalists of this Competition.

  If you can get a Team together to play in one, or both, of these Competitions then just let me know. Each Team may consist of up to 6 payers. It is helpful to have at least 5 players to ease the complication of arranging matches.

   To enter any of the Competitions then either e-mail me on gloria@prescott78.orangehome.co.uk or telephone on 01652654872. Thank you, Glynn.

 

 

 

County Pairs League

The first Heat of this new event is this coming Sunday, 21/9/2014, at Dunholme starting at 1.30 p.m. The competition involves a series of 8 Heats throughout the season from now to next Spring. Prizes are awarded for each Heat but there are overall prizes for performance throughout the season. To qualify for the overall prizes you must play in at least 6 of the Heats. If you play in more than 6 of the Heats then your best 6 results will count towards the Championship. You do not have to play with the same partner throughout the Competition.

   Please make an effort to play in this Competition. It is a new venture for the County. We are trying to give you bridge events that you will support. The first event, the Random Seeded Pairs was a success, so let's try and build on this. Table fee for the event will be £5 per player.

EGM

As the original AGM failed to be quorate an EGM was called to ratify the business conducted at the AGM. This EGM was held last night, July 18th, at the Scunthorpe BC. The meeting was quorate and the business was quickly ratified.

  A County Committee meeting was held immediately after the EGM at Scunthorpe.

Midland Counties League 2014-2015

   As many members will be aware, the organiser of the teams for the Midlands League suddenly resigned a few weeks ago, without warning. This put the County in a difficult position with regard to our fixtures for the 2014-2015 season. The first fixture was was postponed. Subsequently we have not been able to find anyone interested in taking over the role of organiser for the Midlands League teams.

   At our County Committee meeting, 18/07/2014, it was decided that we should withdraw from the league for the 2014-2015 season, at least. This is a great pity and will be a big disappointment to many of the players in the various teams. This decision will be reassessed for the 2015-2016 season.

 

Random Seeded Pairs

The first event of the season was held on 14/9/2014 at Dunholme. It was the Random Seeded Pairs. The competition was won by David and Carol Hall teamed with Tony and Hiary Swann. They had a score of 70 IMPs. Runners-up were Mike Llewellyn and Megan Williams teamed with Guy Grainger and Brenda Begley, scoring 62 IMPs. In third place were Alan Marshall and Tony Waine together with Deidre Fell and Gertie Eley, scoring 44 IMPs. Congratulations to these pairs and thank you to all the other pairs that took part. Without your support we cannot make a success of these competitions.

     The next event follows on very soon. This Sunday is the first heat of the County Pairs League. Remember, this is a series of 8 Heats throughout the season. To qualify for the overall Championship you must play in at least 6 of the Heats with your best 6 scores counting for the overall title. Prizes will be awarded for each of the heats as well as prizes for the overall result. You do not need to have the same partner for each of the Heats. Please support this new event. We start this Sunday, 21/9/2014 at Dunholme at 1.30 p.m. Table fee is £5 per player.

   Thank you to Helen Barr for Directing the event.
