Multiple Team Event Report
Multiple Team Event Report

Report on the Multiple Teams Event, 24th June
This event was enjoyed by 10 teams from Keighley and Brierfield Clubs.  A total of 45 boards were played in two sessions between which we all enjoyed a tasty and substantial tea.  The desserts were made by our own members and were especially delicious. Many thanks to Sue Lister and her team for their hard work.
The event was ably directed by John Spencer and scored by Rosemary Price.  The winning team was Mike Tomlinson, Bob Loveridge, Nicholas Sutcliffe and Mike Costich.  Hot on their heels in second place was Brian Irlam, Alan Purdy, David Bowyer and David Briggs.
Some of our newer members might not know too much about playing team bridge.  It is different to a normal duplicate session in that your scores are compared with those attained by the other pair in you team.  One pair play boards N/S and the other pair play E/W.  Scores are determined by a points system known as ‘Imps’.  Please look out for our team events and endeavour to join in.  If you cannot make up a team of four please ask around and we will try and find another pair to join you.  Also the club has teams playing this format in the Fylde Bridge League so playing at club events will stand you in good stead for joining our league teams.

PENDLE WITCH PAIRS

On Sunday 12th November 68 players took part in the annual Pendle Witch Pairs event.  This comprised afternoon and evening sessions between which was served a delicious meal by the club’s own catering team.  A strong field had entered with many leading players from across the North West and Yorkshire.  At the interval and well above their seeding the leaders were We Che Tham and David Tilley.  Close by in second place were Kath Nelson and John Currie.   Kath and John maintained their form in the second session and were the eventual winners of the trophy.  Many congratulations to Kath and John.  The highest placed Brierfield pair in a creditable seventh place were Dorothy Slater and Roy Waddington.

Congratulations also go the winners of the Middle Expert Trophy, Steven Ward and Chris Hine and the winners of the Non-Expert Trophy, David Tilley and We Che Tam.

The event although competitive was a friendly sociable occasion and a good way to learn new bridge skills from able and competent players.  Many thanks to all those who worked hard in organising the event and particularly to Paul Hepworth for directing, Alan Crabtree for overall organisation and of course, Maureen Ashton and her hard working catering team.
