Camrose - nice!!! Was thinking that you had retired from bridge just to post in the water cooler.

Looking forward to watching you on VG :)

No exciting drama, sorry :) This weekend was just impossible for me to play without putting undue strain & difficulty on the rest of the family. (The 4th member of the family is only 11 weeks old today...)

Got it. I chatted with Phil S today who relayed this as well.

Good luck next weekend. Sounds like you are playing?

The second weekend is 3-5 March in Edinburgh. It is inconceivable to me that Arend and Mike will not be picked, given they were the mainstays of the original team and that team is currently bottom of the table. I imagine that the selectors will take some time to decide who they will replace, given the performance of the three pairs.

The team was announced yesterday:

Scotland - Mike Ash & Arend Bayer, Sandy Duncan & Jim Hay, Alex Adamson & Mike McGinley - NPC to be announced shortly

The selectors seem to have made one strategic error in picking the two Scotland teams - all their regular NPCs are playing! Mike and Sandy in this team, two others in the SBU team.

Does the Camrose always have two month lags between segments? :blink:

A bit before my time, but at one point, it used to be 5 weekends (once a month if I recall). When it was reduced to 2 weekends, I assume they timed it so there were regular intervals between each of the Home International Series events. It also allows some teams to reflect on the first weekend and reselect if necessary. That way, you have:

First Camrose weekend in January
Junior Camrose/Peggy Bayer (run concurrently) in February
Second Camrose weekend in March
Lady Milne in April
Teltscher trophy in May.

Each country takes turns to host each weekend.

There is a brief history of the Camrose at http://www.bridgeweb...f%20History.htm - it is interesting to read some of the archive magazines from the EBU which describes the early years (1930s) where a lot of home teams tried to gain an advantage by feeding their opponents to death.

Corrected the link

That link does not work for me but this one does.

I will admit no such thing without a plea deal and place and my lawyer present.

You are safe, no video coverage of the Camrose planned.
