Wed Nov 3rd The next session will be on Wednesday 3rd November at Shirley Social club at 2.00pm. As usual, it is useful but NOT essential if you can let us know if you plan to attend. This helps us to know how many tables to get ready etc.
It was so good to see so many faces, old and new at our first crib session since March 3rd 2020! Congratulations to the winner of the 2019/2020 Anne Badger Tournament Trophy, presented by Dave Badger to Peggy Faulkner. Dave also presented the silver award to Sandra Thursfield, and the bronze award to Margaret Asthana. Congratulations to all 3 winners.
The new round of sessions which count towards 2021/2022 tournament has now started with the scores from 4th October recorded.
