Andrew Green & Roy Hughes

I am devastated to hear the news of Andrew & Roy. Prior to moving to Devon in 2002 I partnered Andrew regularly. Playing with him was never without interest! He always insisted on playing "System" ( i.e. his system!) because it was "in the Acol Book.......". Although I never partnered Roy I saw him regularly at the bridge table. One of my best memories of bridge 'up north' was when I was NPC of a Lincolnshire Tollemache Team (containing Roy and Andrew) which qualified for the National Finals (and that was in the days when only six counties went forward). Very best wishes to all others in the Lincolnshire CBA who might remember me. Very best wishes, Julian Foster

The inaugural meeting of the Lincolnshire Contract Bridge Association was held at the Harrington Club, Skegness on 13th June 1946. Mr R J G Dutton was elected Chairman and also the first delegate to the EBU. Reverend Bell was elected Vice Chairman. Mrs Brumpton and Mrs Turner were elected joint Secretary/Treasurer.
The first of the Annual Championships was held on the 10th & 11th January 1947 and the entry was 2/6d per player per event. Cups were presented from the officers mentioned above and they are still played for today.
The first Annual General Meeting was held on 17th May 1947 and John Brown was elected as County Captain, a post he held for several years.
John Brown was our most celebrated member. He wrote several books on bridge, his most popular being "Winning Defence" first published in 1952.
The first record of the total membership is from the October 1947 Committee Meeting when it was 113. This had increased to 228 by the AGM of 1960 which were the last records in the archives for some years. The current membership averages about 230.
Some noted performances in those early years were:

1951 - J Brown & J Woodhouse won the North of England Pairs and were second in the National Pairs championship
