  2. Peter Oake
  3. Graham Beeton

  1. Colin Scott & Peter Oake

Well done to the winners and to one and all for taking part!

Click on the 'Ladder' headings above for the full final standings, which are for the best 30 sessions. 

ECATS Charity Challenge SIM Pairs - 12th March 2024

The ECATS Charity Challenge SIM Pairs raised funds for Cancer Research and Marie Curie. £5 / person with the Club matching all donations. A total of £270 was thereby raised. Congratulations to Linda Fleet and Jeanette Webb for winning the session, though Albert Kitchin and Theo Todman seem to have done best for the Club nationally. See Local Results and National Results.

There's a Commentary Booklet authored by Julian Pottage for your entertainment. Somewhat along the lines of 'project retrospect' on occasion. It also doesn't explain how to get to 7NTx - 6 on B8. 

Club AGM - Tuesday 4th June 2024

A date for your diary: Tuesday 4th June 2024 will be the Club AGM when various weighty matters will be discussed and voted on. Agenda and requests for items thereon to be issued in due course. 

Follow This Link for the Minutes of the Committee Meeting on 20th February 2024. 

EBU Regulatory Changes

The EBU has reissued the Blue and White Books which detail all the laws that govern our beautiful game in England. Unless you suffer from insomnia, I suggest you start off with the brief 'changes' documents. The rules on Announcing and Alerting are a source of continual confusion to some - and they have changed again. The two-page summary (item 2 below) is a useful document. Click on the titles to find the documents on the EBU website. 

  1. Reasons for and details of the Blue Book changes
  2. New Blue Book Announcing and Alerting Summary
  3. Blue Book list of changes
  4. White Book list of changes
Annual Ladders: 2022-23 Season Winners

The annual ladder competitions reached their conclusion for the previous Club Year at the end of March, but no-one noticed! So, belated congratulations to ... 

Individual Ladder

  1. Robert Elliott
  2. John Sutcliffe
  3. Peter Oake

Pairs Ladder

  1. Peter Oake & Robert Elliott
  2. John Sutcliffe & Robert Elliott
  3. Steve Ensor & Tim Connett

Click on the headings for the tables. Peter Oake & Colin Scott deserve an honourable mention in the pairs, but just failed to qualify according to the '15 sessions' rule. 

The state of play in this Season's competitions can be seen from the Menu to the left (or follow this link). 

No doubt our chairman will adorn this box with champagne and chapeaux in due course. 

Club Ethos

I play on a Bridge website playing teams and happened upon a Swedish Team's logo, fortunately in English:

Play Fair

Play for Fun

Play for Knowledge

Play among Friends

Couldn't have said it better - so its now on the page heading!

Welcome to the Mayflower Bridge Club Website
