East Anglian Bridge Weekend 2016

posted 26 Nov 2015, 01:20 by Paul Bond   [ updated 14 Mar 2017, 05:04 by Colin Sills ]

Hi [Cambs & Hunts],

I've made a very small change to the EABW entry form.  In previous years players have been confounded by the one-way system in Ipswich and unable to locate the free carpark adjacent to the UCS building where the event is held.  This year I included the postcode of the carpark in the notes on the back of the entry form, and now I've added the same information on the front of the form (in case people don't read to the end).

The latest version is attached.

Perhaps you could post this latest version on the website, and promote the event amongst your members as usual.

Best regards,


Jeff Orton

Jon Cooke wins Spring Foursomes

posted 5 May 2015, 13:49 by Catherine Jagger   [ updated 14 Mar 2017, 05:03 by Colin Sills ]

Jon Cooke was part of the Hinden team that has just won the EBU's prestigious Spring Foursomes event. The team remained undefeated throughout the double elimination stages, beating Forrester's team in the final head-to-head, and then had tight matches in the semi-finals (vs Mossop) and final (vs Vitas). With eight boards to go, the final was all-square, and they won 8-4 in the final stanza.
