17th November

On Monday nine full tables played a single winner Mitchell movement.   After quite a tussle, Brian Mawby & David Reed came first with 62.80. Maintaining their consistent form, Adrian Williams & Don Prowse came second with 61.90. Malcolm Melrose & Maxwell Kynoch were third with 57.74; Chris Cooper & Wendy Crees were fourth with 56.55; Peter & Vera Iredale were fifth with 55.65; and Helen Foster & Geoff Bennett came sixth with 54.76. The hands were capricious causing wide varieties of contract and success. Out of 27 boards, each played eight times, eight produced eight different results, and nine produced seven different results. No one, however, would play any contract on Board 17, which was passed out eight times, a very rare event!

On Tuesday Afternoon of last week the unusual pairing of Brian Mawby & Edwige Quick won by a clear 3% with 66.67. Frank Grace & Isobel Ross followed with 63.49. Alan Page & John Chard were third with 58.33; Don Prowse & Brenda Berger were fourth with 53.70; Cynthia Martin & Malcolm Fawcett were fifth with 52.38; and Barrie & Lynne Bemand were sixth with 51.98.

On Thursday evening five full tables played a Howell movement.  Richard & Rhona Holland just kept ahead of Janet O'Connor & Don Prowse with 57.81 and 57.29 respectively. Brian Mawby & David Reed were third with 55.21 and Janet Stuchbury & Zena Hutchinson were fourth with 54.69. Zena and Janet retain their lead in the Champagne Handicap, but we’re not half way through the series yet!

On Wednesday morning twenty one players practiced opening and bidding on a mixture of weak and strong unbalanced hands. This week it's competing with a 1NT opening.

On Monday morning nine players practiced using transfers for weak take out, next week it's the strong stuff!
