A good time was had by all on our Melbourne Cup Day—well done to all contributors, participants and especially the winning fashion plates: best hat was won by Phillipa Crowther; best-dressed lady Jennie O’Neill; and best-dressed gentleman Nigel Savory – he was given free rein with this outfit!
The results are in and we’re again proud to announce that one of our local pairs—Megan Grant & Margaret Boniface—made the top 100 (out of a total of 973 pairs)! Well done to M&M and all who competed.

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)
