Poster Set 2016-2017

Posters for each event of the new season are now available on the County website. Please take a copy of each poster and display it on your Club noticeboard. We all need to do our bit to support the events during the season. Let me have your entries, especially the first event which is the County Swiss Teams at Scunthorpe on September 25th starting at 11.30 a.m. Thank you, Glynn.

Random Seeded Pairs

  After the debacle of the Swiss Teams the next event on the calendar is the Random Seeded Pairs. This is to be held on Sunday October 23rd at the Dunholme Village Hall starting at 1.30 p.m. It will be directed by Helen Barr. It is imperative that pairs pre-enter the event. The cost is £5 per player and light refreshments will be available. It would improve my mood towards these events if members could find a way to play and support the County Committee. It really is important for the future of the game that players venture outside of the confines of their local Club and made the next step to County events. Come on folks, give it a go! Glynn. 

   Entries to me, gloria@prescott78.orangehome.co.uk or telephone 01652654872.

 

Swiss Teams Event Cancelled

As I indicated a couple of days ago, we only had nine entries for the Swiss Teams event.

My pleas for more participants has fallen on deaf ears, nobody came forward as a result of my article on the website.

As a result of this the event has had to be cancelled because of lack of support.

Sorry for any inconvenience that has been caused. Glynn.

New Season

It is August again and we are about to start the 2016-2017 County season.
The new Poster Set is now available for download - it can be found under the Calendar section to the left. The idea is that you can download the pdf file, print it out, and then display the set on your Club's noticeboard.

The first event of the season seems to be many weeks away but as time flies it will soon be upon us.

The first competition is the County Swiss Teams. This is on Sunday September 25th at Scunthorpe BC starting at 11.30 a.m. It will be directed by Helen Barr and the event will finish around 6.00 p.m. The cost will be £50 per Team which will include an afternoon meal. Any special dietary requests should be sent to Glynn when entering a team, if possible. Any players in full-time education are entitled to play in the event free of charge.

Other events that I require entries for are the Lincs Gold Teams of Four and the County League Teams of Four. Would team Captains please remember that it is important to have five, if not six, players in their team. This allows easier organisation when trying to asrrange dates for matches. I hope that a few more teams will decide to give these two competitions a go this season. Remember, the Lincs Gold is Green Pointed so they are avaible for every match won in the event. Teams to Glynn by the middle of September, please.

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.
