Isle of Man

THE Manx Bridge Union's

2014 AGM has been held

- very much a status quo

event with a satisfactory

financial position, in creased

attendance at the Congress, no

changes to the committee and no

variation in the P2P levy. The

programme of events for 2014/15 is also

a near repeat of previous years:

Individual Championship: Aug 3.

Annual Green-pointed Congress:

Sept 5-7.

Pairs Championship: Oct 12.

Teams Championship: Nov 2.

Rawcliffe Mixed Pairs: Feb 22.

Mini-Congress: March 22.

A Manx team of eight competed in the

inter-county President's Cup in Carlisle

in June. Four of the Island's squad for

the Commonwealth Nations Champion ship

in Glasgow in September were

available and played in the event, which

was a good workout at the teams format

played at a high level.

Liz Kelly, the Tournament Secretary,

is gearing up for this year's Congress and

the usual rush of applications in the last

two months before the event. It will be

held again in the Palace Hotel, Douglas

and, with the new sponsorship deal in

place, prize money is being increased.

The format is slightly changed from the

usual as there is a near clash of dates

with the Commonwealth Championship

and the changes will enable members of

the Island team to play in the main

Congress events before heading north

on representative duty.
