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.
