The Winter Team competition for 2022-23 is now complete.  Thanks to everyone who took part.

The teams are:

April's Shower: John, Iain, April, Mick

Odd Bods: Jo, Chris F, Judy, Elizabeth

The Mavericks: Andrew, Richard F, Peter, Paddy

Double TroubleRichard W, Michael J, Lee, Chris C

Bridge Mates: Andy, Tony, Felicity, Carolyn

Bridge of Sighs: Rex, Michael A, Pam, Tony 

Reserves:  Liz Terry, Gill, Jutta

The first person (high-lighted) is nominated as team captain.

The two team captains involved in each match should agree a date & time – but avoid clashing with regular club games. 

Please let Iain know so that he can set up the sessions.  The links will be sent to the captains for distribution to team members.

We shall try to keep things friendly and fairly flexible and hope that this will be a fun competition.  Here is the proposed structure:

The competition would be run over several months on RealBridge.  Each team to play each month at a time to be arranged to suit both teams.

Each team will have a team captain who manages arrangements for their team members and co-ordinates with the other team captain of a match.  They will also liaise with the match organiser/director. 

Matches should avoid a clash with Abergavenny, Brecon and Crickhowell events.  When the match date has been agreed we shall set up the session and send the RealBridge links to the captains.  Where required a director will be appointed for each match. 

Matches will be played over 20 boards, swapping at the half point, and scoring to be converted to Victory Points.  No master-points to be awarded. 

There will be a prize for the overall winning team!
