RECORDING RESULTS

• When you’re on opening lead, your first priority after the auction is to make the opening lead. This should be done before entering the contract into the Bridgemate or writing on your personal scorer.

• The same applies to dummy – after the opening lead is faced, spread your hand before doing anything else.

Christmas Party

Our infamous Christmas Party was held, Saturday 9th December 2017 at the Bairnsdale Club rooms

Once again it exceeded all expectations. The food and wine provided would have been fitting for the menu at any top restruant.  The atmosphere was set prior to the luncheon by the dulcet tones of Bob and his guitar, getting everyone in the spirit of Christmas.

Thank you to Ann and Robin who decorated the room so beautifully, to Pat for her lovely floral arrangments and to all those who provided the wonderful variety of foods that made the day so special.

The day was completed with a game of bridge along with many glasses of bubbly and Christmas cake.

On behalf of the Committee I would like to take this opportunity to wish you one and all a very Happy Christmas and Prosporous New Year, but most of all stay safe and healthy.

ETIQUETTE

 

Good Bridge etiquette means you greet opponents, praise both partner and opponents (well played), do not criticize (good try), do not make gratuitis comments (if you had bid this or led that), not gloat (we got 100%) and finally speak politely to your partner, opponents and especially the Director.
