County News July 2022

♠ Note this double promotion in the master Point ranks. Gabriel and Giles Ip have become Grand Masters, a tremendous achievement especially as Giles is only 32. Well done from all at NCBA. We wish them every success as they move on to other competitions. Their promotion means they can no longer play in the Premier Life Masters competition which they’ve won for the last three years.

 NCBA member Imogen La Chapelle won the Portland Pairs with her partner Stefano Tommasini. Imogen is a member of the U21 Youth Squad and represented England in the European Youth Championships in Holland.

 The NCBA County team reached the final of the Garden Cities Tournament and finished sixth. Well done to all members who played in the various rounds.

County Membership Drive

The EBU have initiated a scheme to help increase membership, by offering assistance in many forms. There are already a number of County Associations that have signed up for this initiative and Norfolk is now one of them.

The principle is that the EBU help co-ordinate and facilitate inter county cross fertilisation. Jeff Smith has been asked to lead this initiative for Norfolk and he has already been in touch with other Counties in the scheme so we can learn from each other's successes and failures. 

All the clubs are invited to join in the effort to promote bridge in Norfolk in general and to increase membership in particular.
