ANOTHER successful joint congress with

Cumbria County Bridge Association was held in

Kendal in September. Some 32 teams and 70

pairs played in a well organised event seamlessly

directed by Ken Johnson. Winners of the Swiss

Teams were David & Margaret Thompson and

Jill & Roger Hancock by 1VP from Tim & Babs Matthews and

Bill & Joyce White. The Swiss Pairs was won by Bob Loveridge

& Helen Montgomery, 1VP ahead of Bill Alston & Andrew

Petrie. This has become a popular congress in an area of

natural beauty. Next year it will be held in the same venue on

24-25 September.

Northern League teams are struggling this year although

hoping to regain lost ground in the last match. Eight

Westmorland players recently attended the Cornwall County

Congress in Bude, another area worth visiting, with Jeremy

Harris and John Ellwood coming 2nd in the Swiss Pairs (see

picture below).
