The Winter Teams competition for 2023-24
This year we have 5 teams. As we did last time, we have tried to equalize the teams, with a balance of pairs, so that all have a chance to do well.

Top Trumps (T3): John & Iain with Felicity & Carolyn
Grand Slam (T4): Andy & Tony with Peter & Paddy

Playing sequence is:
Round 1 (Oct/Nov) - T2 v T5 & T3 v T4
Round 2 (Nov/Dec)- T3 v T1 & T4 & T5
Round 3 (Jan) - T4 v T2 & T5 v T1

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!
