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.
