2017 CHAMPIONS

 

This years Club Champions are the popular pairing of Val Heferen and Jay Moore.

Neither of these players are new to the role of Club Champions though it is their first success as a pair. Anyone checking the web page listing the past champions will see that Val has been successful with Margaret Geddes and Cathy Cox.

However Jay's success predates those honoured on the trophy where her success came with the ever popular Molly Poole.

Over the years in normal club events Val and Jay have proved a formidable pairing and it is good to see their commitment and understanding of each others play meet with this susccess.

Congratulations Val and Jay

 

Green Plate

   

 

 

Barbara & Kay Wall

Libby Cox & Gail Mann

This years conslation cup run in conjunction with the Championships saw a good field contect the Green Trophy.

The successful pairing for North South were Barbara and Kay Wall who finished with a good margin and a very amazed smile on their faces.

East West this year went to the combination of Libby Cox and Gail Mann.

It is wonderful to see new names appear in these major events in the winners position and to watch the facial expressions as they reflect a combination of amazement and joy. Congratulations to all those who went on from week one to week two with your original partners. It makes this consolation event a really meaningful one.

Congratulations to out winners and we look forward to seeing them continue with this new found success.

 

 

 

2017 SPARKES CUP
2017 SPARKES CUP

2017 saw a succesful defence of the title that Maureen Wright and Sandy Capper took out in 2016.

With 5½ tables, a Howell movement, and a fairly competative field this was a commendable effort. Using the scoring tablets which show your placing progressively the lead fluctuated throughout the morning. However when the final results were in there was a very relieved look on the champions face. With the vast majority of their table results in the top percentage and only a couple of results towards the bottom their consistancy was the telling factor in the end.

Congratulations to Maureen and Sandy

LAW CHANGES 1/8/2017

These are the six main changes, effective from 1 August 2017, that  players should know about:

  • Claiming - If a player claims he or she needs to face his or her cards at the same time as providing any information about an intended line of play. If doubt is expressed about the claim, and only if all four players agree, the hand can now be played on, otherwise the director needs to be called.
  • Comparable calls – In some situations a player who makes an insufficient bid or a call out of turn may be able to make a comparable bid (that is one that contains all the information of the withdrawn call) and thus avoid restrictions that might otherwise apply to his or her partner’s bids or leads.
  • Unauthorised information – When a comparable call has not been made after a withdrawn call then the laws now rely on the partner knowing that they cannot use any information from the withdrawn call. Partner must not choose an option that would be suggested by the withdrawn call if there is any other reasonable option. The same approach applies in situations when you might have unauthorized information from partner’s mannerism or hesitation.
  • Adjusted scores – There are more situations where directors need to award an adjusted score to one or both pairs to restore fairness.
  • Dummy’s rights – Dummy now has the right to try to prevent an irregularity by a defender as well as declarer, but still no right to draw attention to an irregularity once it has occurred until the end of the board’s play.
  • Correction of unintended calls – The situations where an unintended call can be corrected have been tightened to focus only on mechanical slips rather than loss of concentration.

Remember ALWAYS call your Director for any irregularity. Do not become a "Bush Lawyer"
