JANUARY 2023 - FORTHCOMING EVENTS

Firstly, may I wish every Sussex member a very Happy and Prosperous 2023!

I am very happy to say that we will be running plenty of events this year, both live and online, including the return of some old favourites. Here's a snapshot of some attractions in just January and February. There is truly something for everyone!

New Year Swiss Teams - Henfield, Sunday February 12th

The New Year Swiss Teams eventreturns to Henfield Hall, after a two-year absence. Seven matches, a chance to catch up with old friends and a delicious buffet winter lunch! We start at 11 a.m. and should be finished by about 6.30 p.m. Enter onlineor use the attached form. For further information, please email organiser Joy Mayall or ring Joy on 07715 104985.

Charity Simultaneous Pairs - in clubs in the week of February 20th

Also back after a short break, the Sussex Charity Simultaneous Pairs will be staged in clubs throughout the week commencing February 20th. This year's local charity, selected by our members, is the Seaford St James' Trust, which provides services (including a Stroke Club) to the local community. Check with your club to see if they are planning to hold a heat! All clubs play the same boards and the results are scored both within the club and across the county. Lots of masterpoints and a trophy for the winners! For further information please email organiser Peter Clinch or ring him on 07515 333539.

All teams that lose in the first round of the Champ Teams will be entered into the Plate competition so two matches are guaranteed. Please register byJanuary 31st.

Registrations for theSussex Leagueare also being taken now - they close onFebruary 10th.

Qualify for the National Pairs in your club

Did you know that, if you score 55% or more inanyregular club pairs session duringthe weeks of 5th and 12th Februaryyou will be automatically qualified to enter the online Regional finals being held on Sunday March 26th? That Regional final will be two sessions and will cost just 10 per player so this is a tremendous way to take a step into a national bridge event at a great price. I thoroughly recommend it.

Quite an exciting programme, I think. Make it your New Year resolution to play some good bridge!

I hope to see you at one or more of these events!
