Calendar for 2019/2020 Season

The 2019/2020 Calendar has been updated for our regular events, as follows:

MONDAY Supervised Play Evening Duplicate
4th TUESDAY    Laing Trophy
Every TUESDAY   Tuesday Ladder
WEDNESDAY Supervised Play  
3rd THURSDAY   John Walshaw Cup
Last THURSDAY   Manning Cup and Plate
FRIDAY Kettering Cup Evening Duplicate
SATURDAY   Evening Duplicate 7:00pm Start

The format for all pairs play is the same as last year and following comments and feedback at the AGM the Manning Cup and Plate (played on the last Thursday of the month) will continue. The Manning Plate will awarded to the top performing team who have NOT played anyone from the A Team squad. The Manning and Walshaw Cup team events are intended to be played in a friendly but competitive atmosphere. We hope to encourage as wide a participation as we can for all of the team events which give all members an opportunity to experience something close to the atmosphere of InterClub A,B & C team events.

There are also plans to utilise the 5th Thursday in the month (which normally occurs 2 to 3 times a year) to try out a new format where pairs are randomly assigned into Teams, giving members the opportunity to compare themselves with some of our stronger pairs.

The club has purchased a defib which is placed upstairs near the window next to the kitchen area. Dr Robin Lee and Dr Roger Bailey recently gave short presentations to club members, on how to use the defib.  There is also a poster next to the defib, and we would urge all members to take a moment to familiarise themselves with what to do in the event of an emergency.
