  ♣

The Club will again host a heat of the County Pairs Competition; this year on 4th December. It will be a completely normal club night with results counting towards the Winter Cup and NGS. In addition the highest scorers will also be eligible to compete in the County Pairs final at Spondon in January, if they so wish.

We were delighted to see 7 tables play simultaneous pairs on Monday 13th for Children in Need. The £140 table money has been donated to CiN via ECats bridge. Anna has replied and extends her thanks to the Club and all participants. The results are already on the EBU website and the Ringwood Bridgewebs website. We will upload the results to ECats but Anna is in hospital tomorrow onwards for a short while so there will be a delay before results are finalised.

The Price of £25 per person is inclusive of 3 course Luncheon and 24 to 28 boards of Bridge depending on numbers.

The event is open to bridge players everywhere and is not restricted to Club Members so please come along and bring your friends, visitors or even relatives!

We are holding several special events in December. See Future Events Panel for details.

Finally we will replay 8 hands froom last weeks Charity event which all started with a 1NT bid but finished in 5 to 9 different contractsThose who have been playing on Monday morning for some time and who do not need to go back to basics should try the Wednesday evening session. If any of your friends would like to start from scratch, now is the time.

Chairman's Remarks

   Attendance on Wednesday evenings continues to disappoint. The committee have therefore decided to try something new for a couple of months. On alternate Wednesdays when there is no teams match there will be a stand alone event to encourage learners and improvers while still providing competition for more experienced players. The first 2 sessions will be handicap events with a small prize to the winners.

As usual  if you need a partner please contact Chris. Details in the partner finding section.

 

PRESIDENT'S TROPHY
PRESIDENT'S TROPHY

Tuesday 3rd October saw the second annual competition for the President's Trophy. Congratulations to  Phil Thomas and Steve Mulligan who were convincing winners of the trophy. Although numbers were slightly disappointing it was good to see several pairs from other clubs which always adds interest to the competition.

Thanks to Lyndon for running the event and to Susan and  Francine for helping out with the organisation.

MARJORIE MOUND TROPHY
MARJORIE MOUND TROPHY

THE inaugural competition for the Marjorie Mound Trophy was played on Tuesday 3rd May at Walton Golf Club. This competition, both greatly anticipated and attended, saw 15 1/2 tables competing throughout the day in a friendly and enjoyable atmosphere. The eventual winners were Lyndon & Susan Davies who were presented with the trophy together with a pair of cut glass wine glasses. A reward which Marjorie would heartily have approved of.
