On Monday Afternoon five tables played a two winner Mitchell movement. John Crompton & Val Richards topped the North / South side with 73.33 and Carlyn Miller & Sheila Mann led East / West with 53.33.

Monday Evening saw eleven pairs playing a Howell movement to produce a single winner in this blue pointed Founders Championship Pairs Event. Jim Bainbridge & Smita Basu came first with 63.54 followed by Max Kynoch and Malcolm Melrose with 58.33 and Michael Ward & Don Prowse with 54.76.

This result takes Malcom & Max into the lead of the Founders, but only just ahead of Brian Mawby & David Reed, with only two events to go!

Our very full Autumn programme with three courses of lessons and two coaching / supervised play sessions continues until the end of November.
