Christmas Session

Wednesday 18th December is the club's Christmas Session - while the evening counts as part of the Positional Pairs, it also includes a break for a small celebration.  Drinks are provided by the club but members attending are asked to bring a small contribution of 'nibbles', either sweet or savoury.

We hope to see many of you there.

Goodall Trophy
Goodall Trophy

In 1983 George Goodall denoted a trophy to be awarded to the player with the best average position after qualifying in all of the club's five competitions.  This year there were 18 such qualifiers, the highest number for sixteen years, and there was a three-way tie for the trophy between Madge Allison, Derek Fox and Richard Hilton (see 'Competitions').
