It is with great sadness we heard the news that Chris passed away on Saturday 28th November after a long battle with Cancer.
Chris was a lovely man and excellent Bridge player and he will be sorely missed.
Our thoughts are with his wife, Karen and his family.
Funeral arrangements are not yet known but will be restricted due to Covid-19 rules.
Following the latest government guidelines the club will be closed until further notice.
There are generally 10-14 tables of hard fought but friendly bridge all under the auspices of the EBU. Visitors always welcome. Hosting is available but not for club events.
Check out the Competitions which are now up and running - Current leaders are:
Pairs - John Sutcliffe and Robert Elliott
Individual - Chris Megahey
Thanks to our members generosity we were able to donate £250 to Children in Need this year.
Congratulations to the team that represented Mayflower in the Fletcher trophy for coming a very creditable 3rd -
John McCoy and Marcia Levan-Harris
Catriona Lovett and Mike Harbour
Jon Ward and Alan Aylott
Cath Fox and June Brown
Although concentrating on his bridge Tony still found time to practise his dance moves.
Please let John McCoy know if you are available to host on a particular week.
Peter Williamson has very kindly put together the history of the club. Peter is one of the last playing founders of the original club.
Click on this box and have a read, there are some lovely pictures which probably date from the seventies complete with dodgy moustaches, crevats and a mean, moody and magnificent Peter.
If you have any pictures of Mayflower Bridge or the people who have played here please send them to John@johnmccoy.co.uk and get them saved for posterity before they are lost like tears in the rain!
After years of sterling service Carol McCue is stepping down from the find a partner role - very many thanks to her!
Going forward there are alternatives - the website has a facility for you to register the dates when you would like to find a partner. You will have to register in the members area first - this is very straightforward. The other method is to contact me (John McCoy) and I will attempt to find a partner. The former method is best for the more longer term and the latter when your partner cries off at short notice with a broken eyelash or man flu! I can be contacted on 07474 267160 or email@example.com - click here to send an email. During the day text messages/email are probably the best way of contact as sadly I am still working.
There are I'm sure people that don't come through lack of a partner or they may not wish to play regularly. If you are aware of somebody let me know their names and I will contact them and see if we can get them back playing or as an occasional last minute stand in.
I play on a Bridge website playing teams and happened upon a Swedish Team's logo, fortunately in English:
Play for Fun
Play for Knowledge
Play among Friends
Couldn't have said it better - so its now on the page heading!
Well done to Marcia, who raised an incredible £779 for Breast Cancer Now through her recent raffle.
Thank you from the Ecatsbridge team
