Dorin Salver Week

In the week of 3rd to 7th December we ran our annual Dorin Salver Sim Pairs.  To explain some of the history of this competition: the Queen Elizabeth’s Foundation for Disabled People was founded in 1932, and in 1948 the Foundation acquired the Dorincourt Estates in Leatherhead.  In 1956 they set up the Banstead Place Rehabilitation Centre (for brain injuries), who presented the Dorin Salver for our bridge competition.  In 1967, all their centres – there is another one in Carshalton  - were amalgamated to become the Queen Elizabeth’s Foundation for the Disabled, with its headquarters in Leatherhead.

This excellent charity helps people from all over the country and more information can be found here

It is anticipated that that this year's event will raise at least £2,700 but this is yet to be confirmed

Overall wnners: Jill Cook & Ian Lewis (Yateley & Hawley)

Free places for affiliated clubs - Some clubs affiliated to the EBU may be able to receive a 'free place' on these courses. They should book on the course as per , and a club official should email the EBU's Club Liaison Officer - - and advise her of the details of the club member who is attending the course, and confirm that the club has approved their attendance on its behalf. Applications for a free place should only be made if it will be used in the spirit for which it is intended – to help a member provide lessons to bring new players in to the club as part of a club-wide effort to grow the membership and help the club thrive.
