Dear EBU member
As a chill returns to the air and as today is the Autumn equinox, it means autumn is officially here, and so is the new bridge season. There are lots of competitions and congresses to keep you busy in the run up to Christmas (which will be here before you realise), so don't delay and start planning, and booking, your bridge for the next few months now.
Player of the Year
Congratulations to Graham Osborne, winner of the Player of the Year Championship for 2018/19. The Championship awards points for finishing in the top positions of major competitions, and Graham topped the table after winning the Premier League and Crockfords Cup, and high finishes in the National Point-a-Board Teams and Easter Pairs.
The full list of points scorers, and information on the 2018/19 competition can be seen via www.ebu.co.uk/poty
