Katharine has just returned from London where she received her Dimmie Fleming Award.
In her own words....
I had a very memorable day last Wednesday when Silverio and I travelled to London and I received the Dimmie Fleming award at the EBU AGM. It was lovely to have an official recognition of my time on the WCBA committee when I helped, along with many others, to organise the hobby that has given me so much enjoyment over the years. Thank you to everyone in Wiltshire who supported the nomination for my award – it was an honour to receive it.
Congratulations to John Treble and Richard Moore, Brian Johnson and Sue Hands in coming = 1st with 59.20%
Pat Davis and Taf Anthias were 3rd with 59.02%
The first 14 Pairs will now go forward to play in the Qualifying Event on 03 February where they will compete to represent the County in the National Corwen Cup
Congratulations to Jenny Gray and her partner Wynne Gifford (Surrey) in coming 4th in a field of 130 pairs in the Middlesex Swiss Pairs on Saturday, 25 November.
Well done to the Webb Team of Lucy Cross, Chaz Cross, Anne Rogan and Pete Webb with 88 VP's, winners of the Mixed Ability Teams of Four played at the Bowls Club, Devizes on Sunday, 18 November.
Also to the Winstone Team of Alan Perkins, Heather Spalding, Paul Winstone and Roger Harris with 67 VP's in 2nd place
and the Moxey Team of Hazel and Graham Moxey, Mary Overton and John Evans 3rd with 65 VP's.
The Wiltshire Garden Cities Qualifier of teams of eight will be held at the Bowls club Devizes at 2 pm on Sunday, 06 January. Clubs are asked to enter a team by the 20th December so that numbers may be known.
Teams will be limited to nine clubs and if more than nine clubs enter by the 20th December there will have to be a ballot.
A club may enter a second team at the discretion of the E.O (Roger Karn) but priority will always be given to first teams.
The winning club will go on to represent Wiltshire at the Bristol regional final on Saturday the 27th April and if successful there the national final on Saturday 15th June. At all times team members must be playing members of the club they represent but team personnel can change between our event, the regional and national finals."
This Team-of-Eight competition is open to all EBU affiliated clubs in Wiltshire.
All team members must be bona fide members of the club.
Congratulations to Andrew Parkes and Richard Samter in coming 7th in the "A" final and to Philip Howard, Dave Latchem, Andrew Parkes and Richard Samter 8th in the Swiss Teams.
Also, to Taf Anthias, 5th in the "B" final playing with Warner Soloman and to Hugh Gross and Philip Meats, 8th in the Swiss Pairs
We are extremely pleased to advise that Katharine Hodgson is to receive the Dimmie Fleming award from the EBU.
Dimmie Fleming awards are given to publically recognise those who have worked hard and selflessly at promoting bridge locally and at County level over a significant period of time.
The award will be presented to Katharine on 28 November in London.
The last Wiltshire member to receive a Dimmie Fleming award was Betty Bartley in 1999.
