On Saturday the club held its Christmas event. Nineteen tables played a six round Swiss Pairs. 

The event was won by Malcolm Melrose and Max Kynoch pictured on the outside here. Max making a special display of his winner's pen! Pauline Smith and Wilma Kiernan, on the inside, were second, a very special result for them. Well done! 

​The Raffle raised £300 for the Air Ambulance.

​On Monday the weather had become very cold with snow lying all over Rugby. Twenty players still made it to the afternoon session and played a two-winner Mitchell movement. Judy Douglas & Diana Kinch led North/South with 70.00. Bill & Lyn Stubbins topped East/West with 60.00.

In the evening it was still colder, but four and a half tables played the first event in the new Founders Championship Pairs series. ​

​Malcom Melrose and Max Kynoch led the Howell movement with 59.92; followed by Janet O'Connor & Michael Ward with 57.14.

On Tuesday Afternoon of last week, ​six and a half tables played a Hesitation Mitchell. Lo Tolbutt & Jim Bainbridge won with 62.38 followed by Edwige Quick & Sue Robards.

On Wednesday morning we were delighted to welcome two graduates from our beginners' course to our friendly themed practice session. The field of five tables practiced opener's re-bid when the auction has gone: 1S;P;1NT;P;?.

Jim & Nicky Bainbridge, with 59.72, led the Thursday Evening session of four tables; Chris Cooper & Margaret Aitchison scored 58.33; and Dennis Angove & Rosemary Jordan took 56.94.
