First a pairs tournament on Tuesday 7 June with a quiz on Opening Bids/Les reveils (see main article). Quiz at 2 pm, tournament at 2:30 pm followed by a "buffet campagnard".
The Friday 24 June that was proposed is cancelled and will probably happen in September.
Please notify Jenny Pratt () with a copy to Anne Raynaud () if you can attend either or both of the above and if you would like to stay on for the buffet on 7 June. As for the 24 June tournament, you will all be invited to stay on for the cocktail and prize-giving which will follow as it will be funded by the Section's budget.
