Deva members selected to play for Wales
Deva members selected to play for Wales

Last weekend the Welsh Bridge Union held their trials for their team for the Lady Milne (Women's Home Internationals). The event was won by Deva members Joan Marray and Andrea Knox and they will be representing Wales in the Lady Milne trophy which is being held in late April.

For the Teltscher Trophy (Senior Home Internationals) Wales have selected 2 pairs of Deva BC members : Peter Kaufmann & Alan Stephenson and Barry Jones & Bob Pitts. That event is being held in mid-May.

Congratulations to those selected and good luck in April and March.

CHESTER CONGRESS CANCELLED
CHESTER CONGRESS CANCELLED

We regret to say that the Chester Congress (which was to held 29/30 January) has been cancelled.

This is because entries were too low to have a good competition. The decision was taken on Monday 24 January to allow those entered time to make alternative plans for the weekend. Those entered have been notified by email with details on how we will refund entry fees.

Next year we very much hope to have the Congress in the club again.

Championship Pairs Ladder
Championship Pairs Ladder

This year's competition has just 2 months (Jan & Feb) remaining in the qualification stage and so it is a good time to review progress. There is a link near the quick links box that will take you to the current ladder.

To qualify for the semi-finals a pair must have played at least 6 times, and pairs will drop out of the ladder if they can no longer reach that number. 28 pairs qualify for the semi-finals and, based on last year, pairs in the top 40 in the ladder could qualify (because an individual in the ladder with more than one partner can only play in the semi-finals with one partner). It is time to consider which partner to play with in the semi-final stage and what you need to do to qualify.

The winners of our Championship Pairs competition are recorded on the "boards" in the club (see the picture on the RHS) which now include the winners for 2020/21 and 2019/20. Why not see if you can make the board this year!

Fearn Cup Ladder
Fearn Cup Ladder

The Fearn Cup is an Individual Competition and, like Championship Pairs, winners are recorded on the "boards" in the club. This year's competition has 8 more heats remaining in the qualification stage (the 1st being Friday 7th Jan & the last Tuesday 29th Mar). There is a link near the quick links box that will take you to the current ladder.

Qualification for the final is based on the highest score with up to 6 different partners. Making sure you play with 6 different partners in the 20 heats will increase your chance of qualifying. 20 pairs will qualify for the final on Sunday 24th April.

If you haven't already, why not line up (different) partners for the remaining heats (you can see heat dates in the website calendar).
