Our Chairman presented Glynn Elwick with the Dimmie Fleming Award at Dunholme on 13th January 2019
Glynn served on the Lincs CBA Committee for many years as the Scunthorpe Club Representative, then as Secretary for two years, followed by Vice-Chairman and then Chairman from 2011 to 2014. Since then he has been Competition Secretary. He was a founder member of Scunthorpe Bridge Club in 1977 and has served on the Committee for most years since.
He directs at Scunthorpe BC and many County events. He has represented Lincs in the Tollemache and inter-county leagues. He is very active in promoting All Comers Duplicate sessions in the county, to encourage less experienced players to take part in county events.
The Semi-Final of the Bainton Trophy was held at Dunholme Village Hall on 3rd February. 29 pairs had entered, resulting in a straightforward 15 table Mitchell movement with two board rounds and arrow switches on the first two. Congratulations to Mark Wardell & Mark Wain, first with 62.80%, Phillip Harland & Sue Barraclough, second with 61.14% and Chris Phillips & Alan Millington, third with 61.02%. A tightly fought contest.
Thanks to all those who supported this event, to our director Helen Barr and our Competitions Secretary Glynn Elwick for producing another very enjoyable afternoon of bridge.
The next event is the Swiss Pairs on 17th February, closely followed by the Bainton Trophy Final on 24th February.
