Teams-of-Three – result for last round and final rankings

Due to a technical difficulty on Monday 22 April 2019, the last round of the Teams-of-Three competition had to be scored manually and hence is not available on the results tab above. Fortunately, Round 3 results are now available below, as well as the overall results and rankings for the event. The hand record for all 3 rounds is available via the R2 link on the results tab above. (The report below does not allow for category promotion. Final results are subject to the Law 79C/92B correction periods.)

Found this week in the clubhouse kitchen – one gold earring (pictured). Please see the Director at the clubhouse (preferably with its twin for proof) to claim this.

Bruce Hunter trophy returns to its rightful home

Our annual friendly clash with Taree Bridge Club for the Bruce Hunter trophy saw 7 teams each side competing last Friday – with GLBC winning back the (admittedly well-polished) trophy. Well done to all who competed (Results link). Many thanks to hosts Taree who, as ever, were very welcoming. It was a sociable event, laden with scrumptious goodies to help us through the gruelling task of - or perhaps to distract us from? - defeating Taree.

GLBC member turns 90

Good wishes abounded this week for Stewart Barnsley’s 90th birthday. At 80 years old, Stewart learned to play at our club and has certainly come a long way in 10 years. He continues to improve his game, placing 1st E/W in his last game. We hope he plays with us for many more years.

2019 Country Teams qualifiers

After a two-week competition, congratulations go to the winning team with 5 wins and 1 draw: Henry Hudson, Carmel Pike, Bronwyn Boehm and Ann Kynaston (pictured). The Marks, Erby, Salmon, Eishauer and Goodwin teams also qualified for the regional Country Teams competition with the Erby team representing Taree. Good luck!
