MICHAEL Whiting is a

man on a mission. He is

diligently working his way

through visits to Norfolk's

20 affiliated and 15 nonaffiliated

clubs. 'I have

often thought about going round the

Norfolk clubs to see how the other half

lives,' he said. 'Now I am County

President I have the perfect excuse and

I'm thoroughly enjoying it.'

Friendly Crome BC, now based in

Thorpe End, Norwich, has been going

since 1976 but cannot afford to affiliate

because it is currently reduced to four

and a half or five tables each Wednesday,

despite a recruitment campaign. 'Sadly

some members are no longer with us,'

said Crome President Lorna Kinsey. 'If

one dies you invariably lose their part ner

too.' She believes there is a place for

gentle bridge clubs where less confident

players can find their feet. Michael

hopes encouragement and publicity

may help to get even more people

learning and playing bridge at all levels.

Then more clubs can join the EBU.

Tributes have been paid to veteran

Norfolk player Kitty Cozens, who was

still playing bridge until shortly before

her death at the age of 94. NCBA Com petitions

Secretary, Peter PenningtonSmith,

said: 'Kitty was a stalwart of

Norfolk bridge and the N&N BC for 50

years, who played over one hundred

times for the county and won at least

one hundred trophies. The Houston

Trophy event for Swiss Teams was

named after her first husband Tommy,

whom she partnered for many years.'

And finally . . . apologies to Paul

Archer, who was inadvertently renamed

'Peter' in the last column. The winning

team in the Neville Hill Cup was Paul

Archer, Martin Oates, Jeff Smith and

Sarah Watson.
