The East Grinstead Basic Bridge Pairs on Saturday November 17th was, as usual, a very enjoyable event. We had 15 tables, which is a full house, a delicious lunch provided again by Centre Catering at Rowfant and very able directing by Keith Norman. This event is aimed primarily at the less experienced players but a mix of standards makes a good day for all and the inclusion of stratification gives those less experienced a chance to win their group. As I announced on the day, I had to turn entries away this year, so please make sure to get yours in early as soon as the information appears in the county Yearbook.
The results were stratified so 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 Christa Wilson (Ashurstwood) and Christine Bohorquez (Crawley and Horley). Other prize-winners were ......
...... Betty Lecky-Thompson and Hazel Ogden (Crawley) who were overall runners-up and ......
...... Cecil de Araujo and Richard Jameson (Crawley) who won the Stratification Levels B+C grouping.
Alison Lowe and Annabelle Riseborough (East Sussex) won the Stratification Level C grouping but sadly left before the photo session!!

The Kremer Dersch Trophy is an annual teams event for committee members of EBU-affiliated clubs in Sussex. It's a competitive but social event which this year was held at Eastbourne Bridge Club on Sunday October 28th.
Congratulations to the Avenue team of Andrea Galpin, Julian Mitchell, Denise Boxall and Helen Dawson who were clear winners. The runners-up were the West Sussex team of Robert Hirst, Hazel Beveridge, Neil Watts and Rob Harris who were just 1 IMP ahead of the Patcham team of Peter Langston, Ian Macgregor, Ivor Richard and Roy Greenbaum.
Many thanks to director David Galpin and scorer Andrea Galpin, who were both much busier than they expected, to organiser Gerry Stanford and to Eastbourne Bridge Club who hosted the event and, as usual, provided an excellent tea.
Special thanks to William Bourne who, during the tea break, gave a very interesting talk on the follow-up actions to the very successful Southern Counties Junior Bridge Camp at Ardingly College in July.
Congratulations to Lindsay Geddes and Sally Bugden who are pictured with the Edward Bruce Parker Trophy for winning the 2018 SCCBA Ladies Pairs.

..... in 3rd place were Francesca Campbell and Prue Davies.
This very popular annual event was held on Sunday October 21st at Patcham Bridge Club where a delicious tea, provided by Frances and Edith, was enjoyed during the interval. Many thanks to Peter Langston who directed the event.

Every year, the SCCBA runs a simultaneous pairs event in support of two selected charities. The association is keen to support local charities if possible. Since 2002, thirty-four charities have been supported. If your club would like to nominate a charity for consideration in 2019 or subsequent years, please send me full details along with a short statement indicating why you believe that particular charity deserves our support. Proposals will be considered by the county management committee on November 30th 2018.
