SIMULTANEOUS PAIRS

Congratulations to Dick Payne and David Stretton for winning the EBU British Summer Simultaneous Pairs event on Thursday 31 July 2014. They scored 72.68% in the competition which was played in 32 Clubs throughout the Country with 490 pairs participating.

MALCOLM MITCHELL

It is with great sadness we report the death on Thursday 10 July of Malcolm Mitchell after an extended period of illness

Malcolm did much to extend the playing of bridge in the Maidstone area particularly with his development of successful afternoon clubs and also evening clubs where he thought greater emphasis on beginners needed to be made. Although criticised by the "bridge establishment" for competing against existing clubs and his failure to promote KCBA and EBU events he was well respected and indeed he played in many county and national competitions in his earlier years.

The well attended funeral was held at Vinters Park Crematorium on Tuesday 19 August. 

NEW YEAR CHANGES TO MAIDSTONE'S BRIDGE

Table money will increase by 50p for any non members / visitors to cover P2P payments. For adminstrative purposes there will be no change in the day to day management of the Bearsted Club.
