Last week, during our popular short duplicate Monday Afternoon last week, ten and a half tables played a Web Mitchell movement. Judy Douglas & Diana Kinch got the best North / South result with 62.50; East / West was led by Brenda Berger & Pauline Batchelor with 61.11.

​On Monday Evening ​Margaret Aitchison & Chris Longthorn led a ​three table ​Full Howell movement with ​61.00.​ The numbers may have been low, but the quality was high: average handicap was 50.95%.​

On Tuesday Afternoon ​eleven tables played a two-winner Mitchell movement. ​Terry Leary & Richard Gibson led North / South with ​62.73; East / West was topped by ​Cynthia Martin & Malcolm Fawcett with ​58.41.

​In our summer pairs handicap competition​, out of the regular partnerships, Jane Walker & Margaret Aitchison lead with 60.05, only a tiny margin ahead of Maria Smith & Patti Jarvis. Carol Broadhurst & Maxine Ross are less than 1% behind these two.​ Looking forward to fierce competition over the last few weeks of the competition.​

​Negative Doubles was the topic on Wednesday Morning. ​Four tables practised a variety of situations, talking about the outcomes on each board.

​On Thursday Morning​ the topic was ​Counting Cards and High Card Points​Players practised ​and discussed ​a variety of situations, ​finding how useful detailed observation of cards played, related to the auction, can be.​ Definitely challenging to observe, remember and reason.​

On Thursday Afternoon ​six and a half tables played ​Hesitation Mitchell movement. ​Margaret Aitchison & David Reed led with ​57.92​second were ​Don Prowse & Pauline Smith with ​56.19.

​Out of regular Thursday Afternoon players, the ​current Champagne ​Individual Handicap​ leaders are Pauline Smith and John Cockburn, though Margaret Aitchison and Judy Spring Blagden are close behind.​​
