Please click on the title to read the latest revised edition of our newsletter which has updated information about the Pead Plate in October 2016.

Pead Plate Friday 21st Oct 2016

The Pead Plate is an annual competition for members of Wallingford Bridge Club. It is for teams of four, handicapped to give all members a chance of winning, and this year will be run as a pro-am event.  Teams must consist of 2 pros (handicap>53) and 2 ams (handicap <53).  This can either be 2 pro-am pairs or one pro pair and one am pair. 
 
If you are interested in taking part, please would you email Margaret Sloper (rmsloper@gmail.com) to let her know.  She is taking entries from single players who wish to be paired up as a pro-am pair, from pairs of players who wish to be made into a team with another pair, and from complete teams (as long as they satisfy the 2pros-2ams rule).  Handicaps can be found on the club website under competitions or click here.  If you are not on the list,  please let Margaret  know, and tell her which session(s) you usually play. 
 
This is intended to be a fun event, and wine and nibbles will be available before the start.  Please come along and enjoy yourselves.
