Newsletter February 2020

In January the annual Presentation and Dinner was held at the Mecure King’s Hotel which was the usual well organised event with a good attendance and supported by members from well outside South Durham, thanks to all who attended. Long-time section member Martin Porteous handed out the awards in his inimitable style.

Congratulations to Victoria Feldon and Eric Londesbrough who have won major Club awards.


















Thanks to Wallace Holmes who brought along some Odd Objects at the last club night to test our knowledge. This was won by Viv and Dennis after a tie break. Some of us didn’t get any, never mind it’s the taking part that counts.

On the club night of 20th Feb Eric Londesbrough is going to give one of his excellent talks the subject being “Hull in the War”
On the 23th Feb we have a championship trial at Chopgate.  (This is a change of date from the 16th) – Contact Roy Sturgeon for details.

Looking forward to March, on the 5th Dave Headon’s Domino knockout, and Brian and Dennis’s quiz on the19th featuring pie and pea supper.

The regulations and entry form with relevant information for the 2020 Beamish Trophy Trial are now available for download on the
BTT 2020 tab.

That’s all for now, soon be summer. Get yerselves in that shed, never mind the cold.
