No Fear Pairs - 12th April 2015

Here at last is another No Fear Pairs event but, sadly, without a lovely lunch laid on for players.   It will be held during the Green-point Team of Four event during the Shropshire Congress which is for more experienced players, but it will give you a flavour of what you might aspire to!   This event will definitely not be combined with the Teams, but you will have a section in the hall for this particular event only.     If, of course, anyone wants to play in the Congress itself there are copies of the brochure here.
