22nd May

On Saturday the first ever Green Point event took place at the Dunchurch Sports Field and Village Hall. Northamptonshire CBA's event attracted thirty eight pairs from a wide area. The top pair were  Alan Patel & Roger Harris from Stratford. The top Northants pair were John Josephs & Ross Stacey, fourth placed. Nicky & Jim Bainbridge were the highest placed of the nine pairs from Rugby.

On Monday Afternoon eight tables played a two-winner Mitchell movement. Two pairs tied for the top of the North / South side, Lesley Kinch & Helen Appleby and David Cooper & David Harrison scoring 57.14. Jim & Nicky Bainbridge led East / West with 58.33 followed by John Jarvis & Theresa Hillier with 56.55.

On Monday Evening seven and a half tables played the same movement. Max Kynoch & Malcolm Melrose led North / South with 58.33 followed by Terry Leary & Graham Logan with 57.54. Brian Mawby & David Reed topped East / Wesr with 56.60 and Daphne Rourke & Sue Robards scored 51.74.

On Tuesday Afternoon of last week Brian Jacks & Don Prowse, scoring 58.63, led the North / South side of a two-winner movement; Chris Cooper & Margaret Aitchison scored 56.80. Brian Mawby & David Reed led the East / West side of the nine and a half table field with 57.14; John Cockburn & Roy Roberts scored 55.36.

Five tables practised leading against trump contract on Wednesday morning, hopefully learning from the somewhat mixed results!

On Thursday Evening four tables played a Howell movement in the first of the new series of the individual champagne handicap. Brian Mawby & David Reed led with 63.89.

The two prizes in the previous round went to John Jarvis and David Edwards.
