On Monday Afternoon of last week eight and a half tables played a Web-Mitchell movement. John Chard and Felicity White lead North / South with 58.33; the East / West side was led by Cynthia Martin and Avis Raynor with 63.78.
On Monday Evening seven tables played a ​Hesitation Mitchell movement led by Geoff Bennett and Maxwell Kynoch with 64.24. 
After four of the twenty events in our 2019 Founders Championship Pairs, the position is:
1
Brian Mawby & David Reed
2
Maxine Ross & Terry Leary
3
Geoff Bennett & Maxwell Kynoch
On Tuesday Afternoon ten and a half tables played a two-winner Mitchell. Nicky Bainbridge and Heather Spencer led North/South with 63.06. East/West led by David Reed and Juliet Pennant with 61.62​.​
On Wednesday Morning's Friendly Practice session a chatty but thoughtful six and a half tables learned about ​the art of competing, doubling and sacrificing in the auction.
On Thursday Afternoon eight and a half tables played a ​two-winner Mitchell movement. North/South was led by Dennis Angove and Rosemary Jordan scoring 61.90. East/West led by Margaret Aitchison and David Reed scoring 65.18.
T​he Thursday Afternoon session has been extremely popular, filling the Club Room at times. We have now booked the Sports Lounge so that we can space out across the two rooms giving much more space and quiet for the field. It was already booked on a handful of dates, but otherwise it's ours till the end of the year.
