Welcome to week 2 of season 65.  Attendance bounced back a ‘normal’ 51 players this week.  Welcome back to Vivienne Rifkind.  Thanks to Madeline for running the session and to Lee for handling the pairings.

Playoffs for season 64 are over.  In Div. B2, Lesley earned promotion to Div. B1.  In Div. B1, Jonathan earned promotion to Div. A.  And in Div. A, David S. swept his best-of-five game mini-series against Hazel to win the Club Championship for the third consecutive season and 10th time overall.  Details of playoff results will be included in the body of my next email to the club distribution list.
