Virtual "Porthcawl" Congress 2023

Congratulations to Stefan Lindfors & Ian Walsh, winners of the Red Dragon Championship Pairs for the second year running!  It was a close competition this year with Margaret Lane & Lee Collier hot on their heels in 2nd place and Fu Cheung & Viking Yuen 3rd.

Sadly this was the only event we were actually able to run; like last year the Swiss Teams event planned for the Saturday attracted insufficient entries and had to be cancelled sad

Many thanks to Sarah and her team at IBEx for organising and running the event for us once more.

Hopefully next year we will be able to return to the traditional full weekend of Face to Face bridge -

Watch this space!
