Virtual County AGM May 7th 2020

posted 11 May 2020, 07:16 by Penny Riley   [ updated 11 May 2020, 07:19 ]

Due to an insufficient number of attendees (only 11), we did not hold the virtual AGM at this time - given the current uncertainty, it is indefinitely postponed. Reports from the various officers (plus the audited accounts) have been made available (below and in 'documents'),  and any comments are welcomed.

Once there is more information around when it is safe to resume face to face bridge, a draft calendar will be disseminated. Until that time, I encourage anyone who is interested to take part in the various available online bridge games organised by both clubs and the EBU. Despite the difficult circumstances, bridge can still provide a valuable source of social interaction and entertainment.

Best wishes to everyone in the County and stay safe. 

Adam Bowden,


EABW Sunday Swiss Teams

Right: Liam Fegarty, Catherine Curtis, Jamie Fegarty and Paul Fegarty

Simon Barb & Rod Oakford completed an East Anglian Bridge Weekend 'double' by landing the Teams event on Sunday - together with Clive Stops & John Liebeschuetz - 24 hours after winning the Swiss Pairs.

However, the manner of their success could not have been more different to their earlier victory. Having strolled to a comfortable win on Saturday (see below), the teams comnpetiton was not decided until the score for the last of 48 boards was punched into the Bridgemate.

The family quartet of Paul Fegarty & Catherine Curtis and their two sons, Liam and Jamie, led for much of the day only to be overtaken in the final round by the Norfolk quartet of Paul Darby & Steve Dannell and Giles & Gabriel Ip who in turn were overhauled in the dying moments by the winning four from Cambridgeshire.

The Relaxed Pairs was won by Tyler Mair, Mary Moir, Pauline Harden and Mark Leggett.
