I'm off to Brighton today for the weekend's Swiss Teams. It's been seven years since we played with Mike and we'll be hoping to do a little better this time, having narrowly failed to make a final in 2005.
This will make it difficult to continue reporting from Lille, but with all the Scots now playing in the Swiss Teams I'll be back with an update on Sunday night on their progress to qualification for the knock-out stages.
The popularity of mid-week competitions continues to grow and some of the Scots have played well, including:
Nigel Guthrie & Jim Forsyth - 4th in the Seniors Congress Pairs Final
Mike Ash, Maureen Hiron*, Irving Gordon, David Dickson* - 5th in the Seniors Congress Swiss Teams
Helen McEwing & Ivan Bruce - 17th in the Seniors Congress Pairs B Final
Mike Ash & Maureen Hiron* - 14th in the Tuesday Championship Pairs
Nigel Guthrie, Jenny Cooper, Fiona Greenwood, Anne Perkins - 5th in the Mixed Pivot Teams
Anthony Bates & Robert Clow - 10th in Play with the Experts
Paul Maiolani & Bob McKinnon - winners of the Open Pairs on Wednesday afternoon
Anna St Clair & Dee Harley - 5th in the Open Pairs on Wednesday afternoon
Fiona Greenwood, Anne Perkins - 10th in the Open Pairs on Wednesday afternoon
