A great evening enjoyed by all. Well done to Eddie and Michael - ably assisted by their assitant Sheila - for a well-run quiz with a good selection of questions. It was an exciting finish with 3 teams in contention at the last round; Adrienne Tinn's, Mike East's and Hannah Shine's teams with Mike's in the lead. After a bit of a collapse in the last round for Mike's team, they ended up in a draw with Hannah's. Two members of each team were invited up to the front for a tie breaker with Stuart from Hannah's team providing a very fast response and claiming glory and the prize for his team! All proceeds shared between the Village Hall and Hatfield Heath Bridge Club.
Hatfield Heath Bridge Club has been in existence for over 40 years. It originated in the homes of a group of friends in the neighbouring village of Little Hallingbury and expanded to the well appointed village hall at Hatfield Heath.
The objective of the club is to play competitive bridge in a friendly atmosphere. We cater for different levels of skill, with the more experienced members playing in the main hall and newer players in a smaller room of 4 or 5 tables for a few months. When they feel ready to join with the main club they are assured of a warm welcome.
We have been operating our own version of the EBU’s Better Behaviour at Bridge since opening and the emphasis being upon friendliness, our Directors are instructed to interpret the rules (where possible) in the most lenient of ways.
Michael Shine (Chairman)
This was a very successful event with 16 full tables. The honours go to Adrienne Tinn and Mark Wadsworth who had a clear lead over Celia and Derek Oram who came second. The winners of the Cadet prize were the mother and son team of Hazel and Cambell Fricker who came third overall. An excellent result for a cadet pair. Second in the Cadet event were Maggie Stevenson and Jan Moffat who were placed 12th overall. Well done to all winners.
The results section of our new web site has lots of additional information on your personal performance on the night. It is obvious speaking to some of the members that they do not realise that this exists. So to help you get the most from the new results service, please click below to open the instructions on how to access this extra information. You can also find what we used to call the 'Butler Rankings' for the teams' sessions. These are now calculated using Cross-IMPs which Eddie assures us is a better way of doing it!
