Hearty congratulations to our own IAN KEMP who was playing with Jackie Davis in the winning team of eight . The Humble cup is the Premier HBA  Teams competiton of the Year , and Ian has done very well to win it.

WELL DONE & Big Congratulations  to Ian

It has been decided by The Committee, to add one extra qualifying date to this competition making it FIVE dates to play but still with only THREE dates needed to qualify.

So to win this Cup you have to play at least 3 of the 5 dates with the same partner to qualify. This will enable pairs to miss 2  dates & still be able to count which we feel is fairer as it should allow more people to qualify .  The extra date  added is February 20th . If you play more than the 3 dates with one partner then the 3 best results will count.

The Calendar has now been updated  and  there are 2 other changes .The Teams Trophy is now on May 7th and  The Founder members Cup has been moved to August 20th 

The date of the CIN Sims has not yet been arranged
