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.

The course is for players who have taken our Bridge 1 course, or have some bridge experience whether it’s duplicate, "kitchen", rubber or Chicago.
The lessons take you at a gentle pace through the things you need to know about scoring, card play and the most commonly used parts of ACOL.
There are ten, two hour, sessions, given weekly. There is a break in the half term week. You will collect colour notes, and homework quizzes to store in an A5 binder.
During the course our Wednesday Morning Friendly practice session will follow each lesson with a themed practice on the lesson topic.
You can take your binders, or other notes, and ask for help from the mentors or other players. It’s completely relaxed and intended for you to practice what you are learning.
You don’t need to bring a partner, there’s always someone to play with.
Use both the lesson and the practice session to get the best out of your learning.
By the end of this course you will be able to enjoy Wednesday morning practice, and to consider trying one of our competitive sessions or competitions.
