Club report December 2002

Another good year for our club! At the AGM held in October, annual awards were presented to this year's winners. It was entirely appropriate that the President's shield was won by our club President, Sue Oram.

President's shield Sue Oram
Mackenzie trophies Sally Dempster & Colin Fuller
Orchard Pairs trophies Brian Copping & Michael Tedham
Doric cup (Individual Ladder) Gladys Gittins
Fry trophies Ken Jackson & David Man, Ken & Sheila Barker
Swan shields Joanne Caldwell & Ian McDonald
St John candlesticks John & Rosemary Bissett
Unusual Partner Pairs Gladys Gittins & Fred Allen

At the same meeting, members approved the purchase of a Duplimate dealing machine, which is now in operation. Judging by the noise level at the tables when the first boards dealt by the machine were used, some interesting hands have already been produced!

We continue to meet - on Thursdays - at Grange Road, Cambridge. Visitor pairs are welcome at most of our events, details of which may be found at our club website, The 2003 programme, latest results (updated weekly) and the club ladder competition are all to be found here. Alternatively please call the club secretary, Michael Soames (01223 880011).
