THE Norfolk Contract Bridge Association and its

affiliated clubs continue to place increasing

emphasis on bridge education. Members and the

general public can avail themselves of a wide

variety of courses on offer from beginners and

improvers to advanced private coaching and masterclasses.

Details can normally be found via your local club or by an

internet search.

Bawburgh BC has recently hosted a very successful EBED

teacher training course with 13 delegates attending from

Norfolk and surrounding counties.

The YMCA Trophy, the last of the summer season, was

won by Margaret Motch & Alan Hourd. The September

EDP/John Harrison Trophy was won by Maureen Kimbley &

Bogdan Drobny. The next event was the Houston Trophy and

Bogdan was on form again, this time with Paul Darby, Stuart

Langridge & Jill Innes. Maybe this is why he is our County

Captain!

Moving into October the Smart trophy, point-a-board,

was won by Paul Darby, Roger Amey, Matt Millson & Mike

Walsh. The west of the County took victory in the Orb

Pacquot Trophy. Peter Clemens & Trish Foster were first

equal with Tam Payne & Brian Barrett.

The Allwood-Wharton inter club teams was won by

Wymondham & District club - their first win in this

Competition - and they will represent Norfolk in the Garden

Cities Trophy.

Last, the Barclays Bank trophy was won by John Dennis &

Bryan Renouf - with a good turnout of 39 pairs.

Our next big event is the Norfolk Congress from 1-3 Apr.

It is hoped as many as possible from Norfolk and beyond will

come to what has become known as a very friendly Congress.
