SCCBA Midweek Swiss Pairs
SCCBA Midweek Swiss Pairs
Once again, the Midweek Blue-Pointed Swiss Pairs at Henfield (on Wednesday August 21st) produced a tight finish and joint-winners.  The first place honours were shared between the pairings of Yves Lebrec & Mike Keeping and Sally & James Bugden.
Gerry Stanford & Kamran Nadim were third, just two VPs behind the leading pairs.
Many thanks are due to Henfield Hall for providing the venue and catering, to Steve Foster for directing with great skill, to Eddie Williams for dealing the boards, and to Peter Bates for his indefatigable and selfless work to make the event enjoyable for everyone.

Happy Camping at JBC 2019
Happy Camping at JBC 2019

40 juniors aged from 8 to 22 plus assorted parents took part in the South Eastern Counties Junior Bridge Camp 2019 at a new venue on 6th and 7th July.    Bowles Activity Centre was a big success, and the weather was perfect on Saturday for the rock climbing, dry skiing, and pool kayaking.   On the bridge front, we ran four classes and awarded a total of 24 minibridge, bronze, silver, and gold awards.

The competitions were fiercely fought, and the eventual winners of the main Priday Cup were Jacob Potter and Roland Bourne, with .....

..... Woody and Joe Cohen the next juniors in third place.

Jacob Potter also won the Saturday Pairs with Zane Soonawalla .....

..... and Tom and Ben Gardner won the Speedball (where the main complaint was that the adults played too slowly and we weren’t allowed to shout Speedball loudly enough).

The Novice competitions were won by Toby Trusted and Poli Vasileva on Saturday and .....

..... by Amrita Selvaraj and Tanya Gupta on Sunday.

Congratulations to all!

Most importantly, a hugely enjoyable time was had by all, juniors, teachers, parents, and – unusually - even the organiser.  Thank you to Sussex, Kent, and Surrey CBAs for sponsoring.
