THE SUFFOLK CONGRESS:
Elmswell - Sunday 2 October
Swiss Pairs - 11am start
The Suffolk Congress will be a one day Swiss Pairs played Face 2 Face at Elmswell on Sunday 2 October, starting at 11am.
In a bridge world very different from the pre-pandemic era, the county committee decided a traditional two day event at Felixstowe was not a viable option
The day's bridge will comprise seven 7-board rounds, with Rob Sassoon directing. The cost, including a quality snack lunch, is £25 per person.
