Come and join in the fun for the race that stops the nation! Bridge starts at 9:30am and will play through to 1pm - our Melbourne Cup luncheon will follow. Prizes will be awarded for best-dressed lady and best-dressed gent on the day, and of course, the best hat!
After our recent 2-week competition, big congratulations go to the winners (pictured) with 6 wins (i.e. no losses!) — Daphne Yarnold, Megan Grant, Gail Salmon & Barbara Williams. Special mention goes to 2nd place-getters (with 4 wins & 2 losses) — Ann Kynaston, Judy King, Janet Flanagan & Robert Palasthy. Well done to organisers and to all who competed!
We have five new books in our extensive clubhouse library with excellent tips and exercises to help you improve your card play. Written by Barbara Seagram and David Bird, they are well set out and easy to follow. Titles include: Defensive Play at Bridge, Declarer Play at Bridge (helpful for those players with about 50 Masterpoints looking to make that extra trick), Planning the Play of a Bridge Hand (useful for new players) and more.
Well done to local players Margaret Boniface, Megan Grant, Barb Williams and Bev Daniels (pictured) who won the Restricted Teams section of Camden Haven Bridge Club’s congress last Sunday. Margaret and Megan also won the Restricted Pairs on Saturday with Barb & Bev runners up! (results)
Congratulations to the winners of our 38th Annual Congress – GLBC prize-winners are listed below (full results here). A huge thank you goes to our convenor, Sylvia Goodwin for her hard work in ensuring the smooth running of the event. And of course, the committee and others in the background who contributed are included in our gratitude.
There are currently 41 pairs and 25 teams registered to play this weekend in our congress. Entries close Monday 9 September, but late entries may still be accepted. For more information, check out the brochure. Also: a reminder that we’d be grateful for your donations of sweet and savoury goodies for both Saturday and Sunday. Please put your name on the list at the club.
