SUMMER is the time to reflect on the outgoing

season and plan for the new. Teams have already

been formed for the ever-popular Grand Prix

Teams series: however, for those players, either

from Worcestershire or other counties, who

haven't yet done so, it's not too late to join in the fun - details

are on the county website.

Other forthcoming open events include the Ladies' and

Men's Pairs on September 14, the Irene Allen Non-Expert

Swiss Pairs on October 18 and, of course, the Green-Pointed

Malvern Congress on October 25-26. The Congress moved to

a new venue, St John's Sports Centre in Worcester, last year.

This proved extremely successful so we would encourage our

regular attendees, in particular, to get their entries in early.
