London Super League
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!
HINDEN, SUSHI, RGBA, GORDON, BLACK, McGUIRE, GORDON
Div 2; HARRIS, HOT FUZZ, GOYIM, HATSTAND, LEHTO, PHOENIX
KA'POWNALL, RUSTY OLD MEN, JONES
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
Well done all of you for playing the game in the right spirit!
Hope to see you again in the autumn.
