Unusual circumstances,  usual format, almost...    Played as part of the Evening Tournament on the Second Monday evening of the month: November 9th, December 14th, January 11th, February 8th, at 6:45pm.  

Everyone welcome but to be eligible for the Club Cup or  Harry Stein (generously handicapped cup) you must play 3 of the 4 Monday evenings with the same partner. Matchpointed, best 3  results count.   Tournament Director: Mike Baron.

Scores will be converted to percentages to give the Open winners. The following handicaps will then be applied to each player to arrive at the Handicap winners:

Grand Masters and Open Trialists- -5%
Senior Life Masters -2.5%
Life, National, Scottish& Senior Masters 0
Masters +2.5%
All below Master +5%

Thus 2 Grand Masters playing together will have their scores reduced by 10% and a Master partnering a Local Master will have their scores increased by 7.5%.
