News - Mike Truran

08.2.18 - We have a couple of exciting developments to share with you (well, we think they are).

  1. We’re holding a new seven-round Spring Bank Holiday congress on Friday 25 - Monday 28 May at Basingstoke Country Hotel. See links on the top menu.

  2. We’ve been working with our friends at Bridge Overseas to develop the concept of an overseas congress/holiday, and I’m pleased to be able to tell you that this has now been arranged for Thursday 11 – Wednesday 17 October at Hotel Mangalan, La Manga, Spain. There's more information here. As well as the attractions of some late Mediterranean sun in a popular Spanish resort, we have also secured the exclusive services of Grandmaster Keith Arkell for the week.

I don’t usually advertise non-4NCL events, but as Alex Holowczak is instrumental in making the 4NCL congresses happen I will, if I may, take the liberty of drawing the following event that he is organising to your attention:

 

Midland Open Junior Championships: This congress will be held on Tue to Thu 3rd-5th April at Kenilworth School, Leyes Lane, Kenilworth CV8 2DA. Further details and entry here.

 

The inaugural Midlands Rapid & Blitz organised by the MCCU took place in Walsall on 17-18 February. There were four Rapidplay sections and one Blitz section, each with 9 rounds, and a prize fund of £2,680.
