Sorry but I have been away. Not as many of you may think, at the European Championships, but on holiday on Orkney with my younger daughter and her husband ... having a wonderful time with extremely good weather which was a blessing J
In the meantime the European Championships have come and gone – all the bulletins and results can be found on the EBL Website at www.eurobridge.org of course, and good reading they make as well !
And we are steadily working our way towards Philadelphia and the World Championships ... I recently sent out a Press release from the organisers which said:
This year, The World Bridge Series Championships (WBSC) will be held in the USA 1-16 October 2010! It is the first such event to be held in the United States since 1994 and approximately 100 nations are expected to participate in the world series, represented by thousands of the world’s best players competing for world titles. Along with the WBSC, the American Contract Bridge League (ACBL) District 4 will be hosting a two week World Bridge Federation Regional tournament, which will enable bridge players of all abilities to share in the excitement! The World Youth Team Championships (Pre-qualification required) will also take place in Philadelphia at this time. WBF Master Points will be given out for these events. Our sincerest thanks to the United States Bridge Federation (USBF) and the ACBL for their support and sponsorship.

So now you know – do join us in Philadelphia if you can – it is going to be so much fun !!
