David Wing completes his sponsored cycle tour

Congratulations to David Wing who has now completed his sponsored cycle tour of 51 cities in England. David visited each city cathedral or famous church plus an EBU affiliated bridge club. All of his endeavours have been to raise money for the Alzheimers Society. At each bridge club, a city cup event took place and a cup presented (as a gift from David) to the club. Each cup was engraved with the name of the city plus the winners names.

David finished his massive cycle tour by playing bridge at Richmond Bridge Club, partnering with the great bridge player, Zia Mahmood.

U25 Pairs Championship to be held at Brighton

A reminder that the Under 25s Pairs Championship, which was formerly played at the Easter Congress, will now be held as a one-day two-session event at the Brighton Summer Meeting on Tuesday 13 August 2013.

This will provide an extra opportunity for the many young bridge players who traditionally support the Brighton Congress. Juniors who are visiting from other countries are also welcome, as well as those who may wish to come just for the day. There will be several prizes including one for the best Under 19s score, as well as the Under 25s Pairs Championship Trophy.
