PERRY,  SPICKETT & PRESIDENTS CUP

The WWBA Committee Meeting on 30th. had too much business to address selction for the above events, so that will now be done at an extra meeting on March 20th.  Accordingly we would like expressions of interest in representing West Wales in these events to be sent to the ATO by the end of February:  steve@steveburgoyne.plus.com, or Tel:  01656661968.

Event Details:  Held at The Pavilion Llandrindodd Wells, June 2 and 3.  The Perry (Open) and Spickett (Women) are teams events, and we need three pairs for each.  The President's Cup is run on the same format, but is for less experienced players, and we normally invite a club to provide a suitable team, so we would like to hear from a club who would like to provide a team, but it does not necessarily have to comprise a team exclusively from one club.

Porthcawl Congress 1/2/3 December

The Congress was a great success in 2017, the Swiss Pairs being at capacity on the Saturday and the Swiss Teams only one short of being full on the Sunday.  Additionally, the quality of the field was especially high, so that the winners certainly deserve hearty congratulations.  Thanks to the directorial team and, of course, special thanks to the organisers, Irene Thomas and Jenny Vaughan.  Given the popularlity of this event, it would probably be adviseable to book your place early next year.  Some of the happy winners are pictured below.
