Looking forward to the autumn


The autumn season will start on Aug 29 and play the customary

nine rounds, finishing on Dec 19.


Div 2 will start on Aug 28. As usual, we don't know the exact format

for the second division until we have all the entries, but we will

not play more than 9 rounds - therefore finishing no later than Dec 18.



I have emailed all the captains already (very early this time), and will

update the website as entries come in. We already know of three new

teams that will join division 2.


Div 1; A NICE SUNNY DAY (formerly Have A Nice Day)......duh!






When I look around and see numbers falling drastically in almost

every Bridge event there is, I feel pleased and proud that the LSL

seems to hold steady and even grow a little over so many years.

I am absolutely certain that the reason is that we don't allow any

rudeness, and that we've made real attempts at stamping out

"law-riding" and "loop-holing". It's basically only my terrible sense

of humor that upsets players these days.


This is something YOU guys have done, not me. As players in the LSL,

not only should we try our outmost to keep this tremendous atmosphere

in the league itself, but we should also go out there and show others

that the game should be fun - just pure, unadultered fun.


I thank you all for helping me make the LSL what it is today.


The last round of div 2 can only be describes as "undramatic"; I think

someone spilling a glass of wine may have been the most exciting event

the whole evening.


Everything stayed the same; many congratulations to RGBA for winning

the division; Gad Chadha, John Cox, Laura Porro, Adrian Orlowski,

Francois Picard and Ben Ritacca (these were the core members, although

Gad has used a number of subs over the season). They picked up £500

for their efforts and are invited to rejoin div 1 in the autumn.


They will be joined by team Have a Nice Day, Dimitre Stoev, John Vos,

Lynn Fry, Ian Pagan, Nick Simms, Mike Clack, Karen & Malcolm Pryor.

£300 for second place and promotion was their reward for a job well done.


The ascenders price of £200 was won by team Benedicts for collecting

31 V.P's from their last two matches.

It has truly been a pleasure to look after you all in div 2 this season;

I'm delighted to notcie that; not only have I received hardly any calls

for rulings, but I haven't even noticed anyone being bad-tempered at

any point!

Well done all of you for playing the game in the right spirit!

Hope to see you again in the autumn.
