Great Northern Swiss Pairs


Andy Lewis & Kiat Huang attended the great Northern Swiss Pairs over the weekend of 5/6th October.  They started off slowly with two very heavy defeats, but after that they worked their way steadily up the table. Starting the last round they were in 4th position and playing at Table 1. They were playing the best pair in the competition. The leaders had already won the event because they were so far in front.  They managed to win the last match 13-7 VP's. but that was not enough to put them above 4th place. However, a very strong showing by them. Well done!

The Ghost Pairs was held at Dunholme Village Hall on 13th October 2019.  24 pairs had entered.  A great opening event for the season with an exceptionally good turnout, which, it is hoped, will be repeated.  We played twelve 3 board rounds in a Mitchell share and relay movement, with a half hour refreshment break.  Congratulations to N/S winners Mark Wardell & Kiat Huang, closely pursued by Andy Lewis & Roy Brixton, and E/W winners Ron Wall and Edward Harris, with John Gaunt & Debbie Burton not far behind. 

Thanks to all those who supported this event, particularly to our director Stuart Knox, who spent much time sorting out and correcting all the results except one, to our Competitions Secretary Glynn Elwick for producing another very enjoyable afternoon of bridge, and to Gloria for producing a very appetising buffet lunch.

The next event is the Random Seeded Teams at Dunholme at 12 noon on 3rd November.

* Northern Bridge League: 1 x Team of 8: 12th October 2019 at Bolton BC
The Lincolnshire team converged on Bolton from multiple directions and all arrived in good time. The Bolton club is in a quirky old building but the main room provided excellent playing conditions and the half time food provided was equally good. Our bridge was not so good, and the team finished in last place on the day, but we won against two teams and scored 52 VPs which was our second best result of the series and a big improvement over the 23 VPs of the previous event. ..........

AGM & Herbert Trophy Pairs

The Association's AGM was held at Dunholme on Sunday 2nd June. Turn out was good with more than 30 members attending.  The Officers' reports were generally good, attendance at the County events was stable or improving and plans are afoot for the County to participate in Northern and Midland League events once more.  We also look forward to our Vice-Chair's report following his visit to the EBU meeting at the Chelsea Bridge Club in May. Paul Wokes has stepped down as Secretary and we give him our thanks for all his years of service to the County.  He will be replaced by Sue Barraclough.  All other officers and committee members remain as last year.  Following the AGM, 16 pairs fought for the Bill & Eileen Herbert Trophy.  Congratulations to the winners, Maureen Parsons & Maurice Ladlow, closely pursued by Chris Phillips & Alan Millington.

Thanks to all those who supported this event, and to our Competitions Secretary Glynn Elwick for producing another very enjoyable afternoon of bridge.

The events for next year will be published as soon as the Committee has approved them.
