East Grinstead Basic Bridge Pairs
East Grinstead Basic Bridge Pairs

This event, which took place on Saturday November 15th, was once again held at the Ark in Turners Hill and was a great success.  There were 14 tables in play and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves (if the noise was anything to go by!) The only complaints were that there weren’t enough points in the North/South hands!  However 2 of the 4 winners sat North/South, so good defence obviously paid off!

Thanks are due to Keith Norman for his preparation before the event and directing on the day and to organiser Helen Kent.  The catering was once again very much appreciated with many thanks due to John Porteous and his splendid team.

As last year, the scoring was subject to Stratification.  All pairs were placed into one of three Stratification Levels (A, B and C) according to the higher of their two Master Point rankings.  Prizes were awarded in three groupings - Levels A+B+C (i.e. overall), Levels B+C and Level C only.

Congratulations to overall winners David Peters and John Bushell.  Other prize-winners were ......


...... John Cobbett and Gloria Flint who were overall runners-up and ......

...... Eileen McNicol and Linda Souter who won the Stratification Levels B+C grouping and ......

...... Chris Hook and Chris Mewes who won the Stratification Level C grouping.
