15th April

On Monday evening fifteen pairs played a single winner movement in the eighth round of the Founders’ Championship pairs. Edward & Ishar White continued their recent sparkling form to come top with 60.42%. The newish, but very consistent pair of Geoff Bennett & Jim Bainbridge came second with 58.68%, followed by Peter Greenfield & Glenys Barton with 56.25%. Fourth place was shared by Graham Clarke & Smita Basu and Geoff & Carol Davies with 54.76%.

Geoff and Jim have taken the lead in the Championship with and average of “second place” over their three performances so far.

On Tuesday afternoon of last week fourteen pairs played a single winner movement.  Jim & Nicky Bainbridge led with 65.08%; second were Don Prowse & Graham Clarke            with 60.71%; third Caelia Pinkney & Ron Woolgar with 59.92%; fourth Brian & Pat Jacks on 57.54% and fifth Pauline Smith & Lynne Bemand with 56.75%.             

Zena Hutchinson and Daphne Rourke put in a storming performance in last week’s performance in the Champagne Handicap which moved them up into third and fourth place within sight of the long term leaders Cecilia Walker and Janet O’Connor.

A charity bridge/coffee morning in aid of the Myton Hospice and of Hearing Dogs for the Deaf will take place at the club on Thursday April 24th. It’s a great chance to support the causes and come and chat to us about our passion: duplicate bridge!
