Winners of the Mary Bircham Trophy 2016 - Claire Bottom and Phil Glanfield

Plate runners-up - Sheila Glaister and Jim Shearly

An award for the most improved player of the season was made to Sara Hodges.

Thanks were given to all committee members who had donated food for the BBQ.

We would particularly like to thank Deborah and Geoff Finkemeyer for running the tournament so effectively and dealing with the many permutations of scoring and managing the pairings, which, at times, needed a higher level degree in mathematics.
