Gerald Everitt Memorial Pairs
Gerald Everitt Memorial Pairs

Congratulations to Paul & Hilary Nesbitt who continued their excellent recent run with victory in the Gerald Everitt Memorial Pairs, well clear of the field with a final score of 70.08%.  Bob Veal & Nigel Lewis were second with, defending champions, Gill & Steve Lambert in third.

NOTES ON THE SCORING: Boards 23-26 were not correctly duplicated between the Green and the Pink sections.  Those boards therefore have been scored separately in two sections, the results for Tables 14-19 therefore are shown as percentages only on those boards.

The event raised £190 on the night; which has been sent to the charity SENSE.

St. Albans win the Desmond Flockhart Trophy
St. Albans win the Desmond Flockhart Trophy

The St. Albans Team of Stan & Tara Harding, John Mathews & Susan Dow, James Rogers & Denis King and Harry Silverman & Sara Barnett have won the County Teams of Eight Competion: The Desmond Flockhart Trophy.  It means they now get to represent Hertfordshire in the Garden Cities Trophy.  Congratulations to all on what is a fantastic victory.

Starting Times

It is difficult for directors and scorers to set the movement and to arrange the room if members turn up on the dot of 7.30. So can I ask you all to be there and seated by 7.20 (at least one player per pair) please? It might be that in the long run we will have to have a cut off time of 7.25/7.20 for participation in an evening's session.

I would also like to remind you that we do not have mobile phones on and in use in the hall during the evening, so please turn them off / on silent during the evening.

Thank you for your cooperation in this.

There is ample parking and free tea, coffee and biscuits.

We look forward to meeting you and you don't need to contact us first - just turn up, (Before 7.20 pm please!)
