AGM Monday 28th 18.30
The Archway Open Pairs Cross Imps competition was held on the 25th November.
Cross Imps scoring is similar to Teams scoring in that it favours more aggressive bidding and marginal games and slams score very well.
Sheila and Ray won the overall competition and Bridget and Marjorie won the restricted pairs.
Last year a highlight for the Archway Club was winning a place at the national finals of the teams-of-eight. This year, the South-East Wales regional round is to be played on Sunday 1 March 2020. This qualifier offers a great opportunity for members of the club to play and gain more experience of playing teams bridge. Ideally, we will enter two teams. Anyone interested in playing for the Archway should send an e-mail to Richard Stevenson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Greg and Richard are also keen to play in the EWBA restricted pairs on Monday 20 January at 7 p.m. in Cardiff. They need another pair to join them. Please let Richard know if you are interested.
