Winter Simultaneous Pairs

Due to a situation totally beyond our control, we have been forced to revise the results for the Winter Simultaneous Pairs (Wednesday 11th January). Two of our pairs were playing at a non-affiliated club on the Wednesday afternoon. The hands that they played turned out to be the same as the hands for our evening Sim Pairs. There was no way that this should have happened and the English Bridge Union are investigating. At the EBU's suggestion, all hands played by the two pairs have been removed.

Therefore Tony Aldous & George Moody are now the winners, with Jan Havard-Davies & Adele Wayman in second place..

Apologies to affected pairs. I would like to point out that the two removed are totally blameless.

The hands are shown on our results page, but the commentary can be found on http://www.ebu.co.uk/sims/results/000198/display/commentary/commentary.pdf .

TABLE MONEY

At the last committee meeting, it was agreed that table money will have to increase from £2.00 to £2.50 on 4th January 2017. Visitors' table money will increase to £3.50.

This is necessary because we are not currently covering all our costs. Subscriptions will remain unchanged at £10.00 per annum.
