Gill Copeland and George Bak have won the Mixed Pairs Event in the EBU's Northern Easter Festival on the 30th March. They scored 62.04% in a field of 22 competing pairs. An excellent result and well deserved.
Also to be congratulated are John Bastow and Hazel Greenwood who, playing in the Improvers pairs section at the same Festival, came 6th with 54.69%. Well done John and Hazel.
Congratulations to Stuart, George, Gill and Steve. They won the Handicap Teams Championship by a massive margin. Very well played!!
Liz Brown and Joyce Carey won the Ladies' Championship Pairs competition on March 14th. Mark Armitage and Harry Hoyle won the Men's. Full details can be seen by clicking onto the Results tab on the Club website. Congratulations to both pairs!
Stuart Davies and George Bak played superbly in the E.B.U.'s Grand Master Pairs and came third out of the twenty pairs competing. To play in the event one had to be a Grand Master partnering either another Grand Master or a Premier Life Master and all players had to hold the rank of an Ace - so there was a lot of competition and this was a great achievement. Well done Stuart and George.
Congratulations to our 2018 Championship Ladies team winners - Georgina Wooler, Gill Copeland, Georgie Ramseyer and Jacqui Hutchinson. Well played.
George Bak, Stuart Davies, Alan Jarvis and Steve Blackburn won the Men's Championship Teams competition. Well done, gentlemen.

The Tuesday and Thursday afternoons are very enjoyable and attended by players of varying standards. Everyone will be most welcome. Please come.
The Club will soon have a defibrillator. If anyone would like training in its use would they please give their name to Susan Hoyle. Thanks.
