They will now play against Swanmore in the semi-final. Congratulations also to Miles and Chris, clear winners of the Candlesticks Swiss Pairs. February events The Pottage Qualifier is on Friday 3rd Feb. Please enter in advance to ensure being able to play on the night, even if you do not wish to take part in the competition. All players who achieve 50% or more will be eligible for the semi final at Romsey on 1st April. Teams of four this month is Monday 6th. As usual please enter teams on the board or let me know if you wish to play. The IBM simultaneous pairs will be played on Friday 10th The Mollie Simmons Swiss Pairs is on Saturday 11th. Please make sure your entry is on the board, as it is essential to know definite numbers. If any pair would be prepared to act as stand-by (playing only if another pair drops out at the last minute) I would be very grateful. There has to be an even number of pairs for this type of competition. The stand- by pair would not pay if required to play. The third round of the “Six Partners” will be on Friday 17th and the fourth round of the individual on Monday 20th. The junior pairs will be held on Thursday 23rd. This event is open to all members below the rank of club master. Parking Once again I have been asked by the committee to remind members to park sensibly. Quite often some spaces along the right hand hedge are not used, and many drivers are loath to use the spaces right in by the door if they arrive early. Please try to move as far into the car park as you can, filling up the two spaces by the door and the right hand line first and leaving the space nearest the road for the spare player. Remember we also have parking spaces in the nursery next door and exit from there is always easy and quick. NICKO news Basingstoke A (Christine & Richard, John & Brian) won their first round NICKO match, but unfortunately lost to Hedge End in the second round. Basingstoke B (Manny, Graham, Andy & Sula) and C (Helen, John, Steve & Tracey), were knocked out in the first round of the NICKO and therefore eligible to play in the NICKO Plate. They have both recently won their first round matches in this secondary competition, B beating Oxford E and C beating Gosport B.
