Tollemache Qualifier, November 2017

Any member who follows the fortunes of the County team in the Tollemache event will be aware that the performance of the team last November was, to put it mildly, very disappointing. We finished bottom of our group by a long way and many of our matches finished in either a 20-0 V.Ps. or a 19-1 V.Ps. defeat. We only won one match.

  The County Committee have agreed that there needs to be some system put in place which will try and improve the standard of play of the members of the team. Also, players should show loyalty to the County by playing in events over the season.

    As a start, we have arranged two sessions at the City of Lincoln BC where potential Tollemache pairs can come along and practice against like players. The dates are Sunday April 23rd and Sunday May 14th starting at 1.30 p.m. and finishing around 6.00 p.m. We will score by either the Butler method or by IMP scoring.

   The County needs the support of the players who think that they are capable of performing in the Tollemache Qualifier. By not playing in this kind of session then, to me, you are indicating that there is not enough support for a team of reasonable standard to be entered for the Tolle.

  If you are going to play in these two events then let Glynn know over the next few weeks. In my view, an attendance of ten, or so, pairs would be a satisfactory response to this request. I hope that some of you will take up this plea and give it a go. Glynn.

    Pairs accepting the invitation :-

Glynn Elwick/Mike Llewellyn

Nick Hunter/Ruby Schnalke

Maurice Ladlow/Mo Parsons

Mark Wardell/David Stoddart

Chris Phillips/Alan Millington

Sue York/Mark Wain/Reg Loosley

Dennis Mellor/John Gaunt/Debbie Burton

Paul Wokes/John Brocklehurst/Dave Pettengell

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.

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.
