MANY congratulations to Oliver Powell and

Jonathan Derrick who were selected to play for

England in the Under-20s Channel Trophy in Lille.

It is with some pride that we heartily congratulate

County stalwarts Sally Bugden and Joy Mayall who

were presented with a Gold Award and Dimmie

Fleming Award respectively at the EBU AGM in November

(see pages 30-31). Their outstanding contributions to English

(and in particular Sussex) bridge are well-known to, and

much appreciated by, all SCCBA members and these awards

are richly deserved.

Please also note that the SCCBA Seniors' Simultaneous Pairs

will be played over two days on Wednesday February 11 and

Thursday February 12. As with the Charity Sims, individual

players may only play in one heat. To arrange for your club to

enter this event, please email or telephone the organiser, Peter

Clinch (his contact details are on the SCCBA website).
