RBC President, Terry Wright, congratulates Subhash Gupta on winning the Bay International Novices Trophy for the December quarter 2015.
The Bay International Quarterly Trophy, kindly donated by Lucille and Alf Rodney and now in its second year, is a special and very important award in the Club because it is not open to the elite players who have their chances to win other competitions but is rather aimed at the ordinary Members who play regularly and make some effort to improve their game. It is designed to recognise that improvemnet during the year as evidenced by the award of MasterPoints throughout each of the four quatrers of the year. It is, therefore, only open to those Members who have been credited with fewer than 50 Masterpoints as at January 1 of each year.
For the Dec 2015 quarter, our winner was Subhash Gupta who despite being overseas for long periods during the year, managed to accumulate most Masterpoints between October and December 2015 in this category. Our congratulations go to him as do our apologies that the trophy was not ready on time - s situation which will be rectified shortly!
