Please note – this is NOT an official notice of any forthcoming trial
The Selection Committee is considering whether to hold a Teams Trial in place of the more customary Pairs Trial for the 2018 Camrose series.One factor in determining which format to employ would be the potential level of entry to such a trial.Before making a decision, it would be helpful if the committee could compare how many players would be interested in playing in a Teams Trial against those likely to enter a Pairs Trial.
Please email Michael if you would consider playing in:
a)      A Teams Trial
b)      A Pairs Trial
c)       Either format – though your preference would be useful to know.
Note that you do not need to consult with any potential team-mates (or partner) before expressing what is a personal view.
If interested in a,b or c, please reply to Michael by the end of July. The usual ‘Notice of Trial’ inviting entries,will be issued in August.
