11th April

Monday was our busiest day for some time! In the morning, the last match in our pairs ladder round was completed. Congratulations to Peter Iredale and Ed White, top of the first division again; to Chris Cooper and Dennis Angove, top of the second division; and Margaret & Charles Aitchison winning the third division in their first round in the ladder.

In our ever more popular short duplicate pairs session on Monday Afternoon, a record nine full tables played a two-winner Mitchell movement. Glenys Barton & Roy Blackmore were will clear of the rest of the field North / South with 64.29. Cynthia Martin & Avis Raynor were top East / West with 65.48.

Monday Evening again saw nine full tables play a single winner Mitchell movement in the latest round of our Founders Championship Pairs. The cards were fickle and puzzled the field. After a tight contest, Kala Chauhan & Wendy Crees emerged victorious with 61.01; Graham Clarke & Pat Exelby were so close behind with 60.42, and Chris Cooper & Margaret Aitchison followed with 57.44.

This result brings Kala & Wendy into equal third, with Peter & Vera Iredale in the Founders ranking. Malcolm Melrose & Max Kynoch remain in the lead. Don Prowse & Brian Jacks lie second.

On Tuesday Afternoon of last week eleven full tables played a two winner Mitchell movement. Pat Exelby & Caelia Chandler led North / South with 65.00 followed by Lo Tolbutt & Jim Bainbridge with 63.86. Marilyn & David North topped the East / West side with 66.14; Brian Mawby & David Reed were second with 61.14.

On Wednesday Morning, the friendly practice session saw five tables explore the old adage “cover an honour with an honour”, trying to spot those times when you don’t!

On Friday Evening eight teams of four played a New England Relay movement. The team of Max Kynoch & Malcolm Melrose with Brian Mawby & David Reed were on fine form scoring 75 IMPs, 25 ahead of second placed Peter & Vera Iredale with Dennis Angove & Chris Cooper.
