28th March

On Monday Afternoon five and a half tables played a two winner Mitchell movement. Top of the North / South side were Margaret & Charles Aitchison with a great score of 65.63. John Jarvis & Teresa Hillier led East / West with an even greater score of 71.67.

Nine full tables played the latest event in our Founders Championship Pairs on Monday Evening. It was a tightly fought evening, but eventually Max Kynoch & Malcolm Melrose led the field with 62.20. Bren Corr & Eva Thompson were second with 59.23, and Brian Jacks & Don Prowse were close behind with 58.63. Malcolm & Max have slightly extended their lead in the Championship, but Peter & Vera Iredale and Brian Jacks & Don Prowse are still well in touch.

On Tuesday Afternoon of last week, ten tables played a two winner Mitchell movement. Frank Grace & Isobel Ross led North / South with 57.74, but Janet Stuchbury & Daphne Rourke were very close with 57.14. Jan Maxon & Heather Spencer were third with 55.95. The top three places on the East / West side all went to husband / wife pairs. Marilyn & David North scared 58.63; Charles & Margaret Aitchison scored 56.55, and only just in third Gerald & Pat Newth scored 56.25.

A practice group of 22 players exercised their Stayman skills on Wednesday Morning.

On Thursday Evening, six tables played a double hesitation Mitchell movement. Graham Clarke & Pat Exelby topped the field with 63.75 followed by Brian Mawby & Peter Halliday with 61.67. Sue Robards & Daphne Rourke were third with 61.25. The individual handicap is now led by Sue Robards. Janet O’Connor is now second and David Reed has moved up to third. All Thursday Evenings up to the end of April are included in this competition and there’s plenty of scope for more changes in the leader board.
