Club Diary

This year's  diaries should be out by the end of October, so look out for the box in the Club and please take your copy when it is available.


Unfortunately Stuart will be unable to organise the production of the diary next year.  We thank him for all he has done in this regard and are looking for someone else to take over. 


If you feel that you could help please DO volunteer.  Otherwise, if no-one comes forward, there will be no diary next year.

EBU Play with the Experts Success

This year the EBU Summer Festival 'Play with the Experts'  was held as a multi-venue competition, with the same hands played at a few venues around the country, and then scored across the field.  It was a pairs event, but used team-style scoring. At the  end of the evening all N/S pairs  'scored-up' using the scorecard of a pair of experts who previously played the E/W cards. The E/W pairs  scored-up with the 'expert' N/S pair.


Stuart Davies and George Bak, sitting N-S in this national competition, played extremely well and came 3rd out of the 62 N-S  competing pairs.  A great result!

Also at the Summer Festival,  Stuart and George, with an excellent  score of 61.05%, came 13th out of 185 pairs in the GCH Fox championship held on 7th August.
