CALENDAR

OF EVENTS

LORDS VISIT

TEAMS from three Yorkshire

Schools visited Westminster in

November to take part in a

bridge match against the

House of Lords.

Players from Queen

Elizabeth Grammar School in

Wakefield, Fulford School in

York, and Rossett School in

Harrogate took part, and

although the team from the

House of Lords won, the

scores were close and all the

teams acquitted themselves

well.

Prior to the match the

players and accompanying

staff were greeted by the Lord

Speaker, and were taken on a

guided tour of the Palace of

Westminster.

Following the visit, QEGS

pupil Mahmoud El Khatib was

interviewed on Radio Leeds

about the visit and playing

bridge in general. The

link is available on the

EBU website.

SIM PAIRS

PRIZE DRAW

LADY Luck was smiling on

Sussex when the winners of

the Sim Pairs Prize Draw were

randomly selected at the

EBU's AGM, with both of the

top prizes going to the county.

Reg Underwood and David

Cairns of Horsham Bridge

Club (photo: page 55) took the

£1000 first prize in the draw

made from those who were the

top pair at each club heat.

West Sussex Bridge Club

also won a £1000 first prize as

they were randomly picked

first from the list of clubs

which had hosted a heat.

Seventeen other pairs and

clubs won prizes and the list of

winners is available at

www.ebu.co.uk/node/1842

To be in with a chance of

winning in 2015, just enter one

of the Sim Pairs events

organised by the EBU. Full

SURVEY ON THE FUTURE LOCATION

OF THE SUMMER MEETING

IN November members who play in EBU congresses were

asked to complete a survey regarding the location of the EBU

Summer Meeting for 2016 and beyond. It has been held in

Brighton for many decades, and the majority of the near

1,500 respondents expressed their enjoyment of Brighton as

a host city. Many were concerned, however, about the high

costs associated with visiting Brighton in August. When

asked to give their opinion on other possible locations the

majority preferred it being held in another 'seaside resort' in

the south of the country. The EBU board will give consideration

to these views when discussing the plans for 2016. The

2015 Summer Meeting will take place at the Brighton

Metropole on 14th to 23rd August.
