IT'S unusual, and very welcome, to be able to

report an international success by a Worcester shire

member. However, John Sansom achieved a

bronze medal in the Seniors event in the World

Bridge Series in China - well done John!

Closer to home, having moved to its new venue, the

Malvern Congress was again a great success. Significant prizewinners

were: Green-pointed Swiss Pairs: Jack Terry - Ian

Walsh (photo above); Green-pointed Swiss Teams: Tim Brierley,

Jack Terry, David S. Jones, Alan Jones.

At the Porthcawl Congress, Pam Pearce - Susan Sharp won

the Ladies' Pairs.

There are significant changes to the county competitions

this year. In order to make them more accessible to a greater

number of our members, some qualifying rounds are being

abolished, leaving a simple Sunday event. Members are

encouraged to look out on the county website or ask their

club secretary for details.
