REPORT NO.36

LADY MILNE TROPHY

Applications are invited from PAIRS wishing to enter this year’s trial to aid selection for the two teams that will represent Wales in this year’s Lady Milne Trophy (Ladies’ Home International).

The Lady Milne will be held in the Ramada Plaza Hotel, Wrexham, on the weekend of 21/22/23 April. As hosts, Wales is entitled to be represented by two teams.

The trial to aid selection for the Lady Milne will be held in the Commodore Hotel (earlier given as the Metropole – my apologies), Llandrindod Wells, on the weekend of 28/29 January. Jean Hand is the selector responsible for organising the trial.

Applications to play in the trial should be sent to the Chief Executive of the Welsh Bridge Union, Neville Richards, whose email address is welshbridgeunion@deepvault.net

The closing date for entries to the trial is Friday 2nd December. There is no entry fee, but table money will be charged at the rate of £40 per player for the weekend.

Conditions of contest will be published in due course, but it is anticipated that the Pair finishing in 1st place in the trial will be guaranteed a place in the ‘Wales’ team, whilst the pairs finishing 2nd and 3rd will be guaranteed a place in one or other Welsh team.
