This event took place in wonderful autumn weather, with 60 pairs taking part, and bridge played at five venues. The base for start and finish was Cosener's House (pictured), which provided a lovely lunch to those who 'landed there', although report suggested that everyone enjoyed their lunches. The overall winners were Howard Arnes and Bridget Watson. Additional NS winners were Joe Eskinaz & Alexis Cochrane, with EW won by Peter & Suzanne Litchfield. Over £1,300 was raised for Flexicare which provides help for the whole family where there is a member with a disability. It was run, as usual, by Kevin and Ruth Carter, although this year, Ruth retired her bicyle.
Congratulations to Denis Talbot, Kathy Talbot, Denis Murphy & Pearl Murphy (pictured) who won the Swiss Teams at the EBU Andalucia Congress (14 October 2018) finishing on 136 VPs
Henry Rose of Oxfordshire, partnered by Oscar Selby of London, won the bronze medal for U16s(RHS). On the left is Tommy Brass formerly, like David Gold and Mike Bell, pupils of Reading School with his bronze medal at U26. Henry & Oscar also represented England in China this summer- and we must not forget the amazing girls contributions from Laura, Ewa and Siyu in the girls events.
This was the fifth year of this event, based at the Leander Club in Henley.It was started by Barbara and Peter Jordan when Barbara was the county social representative, and this year was run by Jax Hovell and Joan Bennett. It continues to be VERY popular, and always fills up to its 60 pairs with a waiting list. This year it was yet another lovely day, the scoring was done incredibly efficiently by Victor Lesk of BriAn bridge and the winners were NS David and Marilyn Jones, EW John and Annette Chamberlain. £700 each was donated to MS Research and the Chiltern Centre for Disabled Children, both organisers having an involvement with those charities. The full results can be seen on Wallingford BC site.
