THE ROGER PYART VASE

 

 

 

  Roger Pyart very generously bequeathed £10,000 in  his will to Worthing Bridge Club.  In his honour, we   have  purchased a delightful trophy, ‘The Roger Pyart  Vase’, which will be awarded to the winners of the Wednesday afternoon Handicapped Pairs during the Spring Festival week, which as can be seen by a piece by Valerie Benson (“One of his fortunate Bridge partners”), he delighted in competing:

 "Roger learnt to play Bridge at Worthing Bridge Club when he retired to Worthing in 1993.

 He soon became a good player and then a director. Roger had great knowledge of the rules of the game, due to his photographic memory, and directed with great authority.

 His name appears on many of the Winners boards around the Club and he especially liked competing in, and won many trophies in, what is now known as the Spring Festival. He played in the Sussex County Winter League and Green-pointed events for many years.

 Roger was a kind, keen, and considerate partner which I am sure he would wish all those competing for his trophy will emulate."

BBO at WBC

 

Following an email consultation as to the viability of BBO, we only had 9 positive responses for playing online.  This did not meet the criteria required to run these sessions.  Future BBO sessions are not discounted, but we would need at least 16 regular participants to make the event feasible.  Thanks to all who have supported this in the past.
