It had to happen one day !

Monday saw the conclusion of our Teams Ladder for 2019/20.  It's been a great year, our first full one with the very successful Swiss format, and we have been delighted by the number of members regularly taking part.  In the end the Ladder produced a clear win for Team Nesbitt: Hilary and Paul Nesbitt, Tony As'ad and Michael Grounds who have been fantastically consistent.  A word though for our runners up led by Bob Turnham.  Bob first won our Teams ladder in 2009/10 and has been a member of the winning team every year since then, a remarkable 10 years on the run.  All good things come to an end though and we look forward to battle being resumed for the 2020/21 Ladder which starts in April.

If you have not been a regular player in our, second Monday of the month Swiss Teams, then it would be great to have you.  It really is a good evening. Please contact either myself, steve@lamberts.org.uk or Jim Fry, JIM67PAR@gmail.com if you would like help creating a team.

Happy 90th Birthday Stan

St Albans retain Desmond Flockhart Trophy

The SADBC team of Bob Turnham, Sara Barnett, Jane Scaysbrook, John Mathews, Denis King, James Rogers, Mike Aslett and Sorin Butiu retained the Desmond Flockhart Trophy on December 8th. Our thanks to them, especially to two of the team who were "under the weather" and two had stepped in at the last moment, despite never having played together before!
