The first weekend of the Camrose Trophy – 6-8th January – will be at Oxford Spires Four Pillars Hotel. The Camrose Trophy is the first one of the “Home International Series”, also called “Camrose Series” from the name of it’s most famous tourney. The other events, to be played later in the year, are Lady Milne (ladies only), the two juniors (open and girls), and the senior (open). The Home Series are reserved to the five nations of the United Kingdom: England, Wales, Ireland, Scotland of Great Britain, and Northern Ireland.

The players are UK citizen or those having natural parents born there, also by legal adoption, or residents since two years.

The event will take place in two weekends; the second one will be on March 2-4 in East Kilbride, in Scotland. Being the Scotland guest country in the second weekend, they have the right to line up another team (SBU: Scotland Bridge Union), so avoiding the odd number and the nasty bye.

The format of the tourney is an Italian round robin of 16×2 hands each match. The entire result is carried over in the second weekend. The two Scottish teams must play each other in the first match.

The director in Oxford will be Mike Amos.

Here’s a brief story of the event that Liz McGowan, Scottish championess and journalist, last year kindly wrote for Neapolitan Club: click here >>
