Norfolk Congress - 50th Anniversary

The Norfolk Congress is on Friday, Saturday and Sunday 9-11 March 2018 at the Wensum Valley Hotel, Norwich, the 50th anniversary.

We are particularly fortunate in that we have two sponsors for the 2018 congress: J M Finn Stockbrokers and First for Bridge; our grateful thanks to both for their generous support.

We are hoping to make the 50th anniversary a bit of a special occasion and hope to see lots of you over the weekend. Click here to download the programme / entry form .

As a matter of interest the first congress was held at the Duke’s Head Hotel in King’s Lynn on 24-26 May; the entry fee was £2/10s when the average weekly wage was £17 (www.experian.co.uk/blogs/consumer-advice/how-cost-of-living-has-changed-since-1966/)

I previously said £3/18 - I got it wrong; that was in 1948.

Norfolk Players Successes

Now that the EBU no longer includes County News in the printed version of English Bridge, news from around the County will appear here. If you have any news to share please email the secretary.

  • Congratulations to Mark Hill and Giles Ip, half of the team second in the Harrogate Swiss Teams on 18 February. 
  • You may remember that in May Norfolk hosted the Corn Cairdis (England v Ireland friendly match). The 2018 Corn Cairdis is being held in Ireland near Dublin. 3 Norfolk pairs have been invited to participate; they are Suzanne Gill, Graham Hardman, Maureen Kimbley, Bogdan Drobny, Jan & Martin Pooley.
  • Well done to Peter Cotes, Gary Putman, Mervyn Scutter and Clive Turner who were first in the Championship Teams. The trophy winners will be determined by a play off between the winners and the runners-up (Graham Ware, Martin Oates, Maureen Kimbley and Bogdan Drobny) on Friday 2 March. Watch this space.
