Where does the time go? Here we are mid way through February 2018 already and since the return to bridge after Christmas/New Year, the club has been enjoying record table numbers and a welcome increase in new members, so if you are wanting a game and would like to join us just contact Lee Ann Roberts (President) on 4464 2742, and she will try to arrange a partner.
With the increase in members it is vital that players arrive on a Saturday at 12.45 at the latest. This assists the Director by giving them ample time to set up the day’s movement and distribute the bridge mates and boards.
It would be remiss at this time not to mention that once again Adrian Haar and Adrian Reipsamen took out the 2017 Club Pairs Championship. Over the years the ‘two Adrian’s have been prolific winners of this title butunfortunately, all good things must come to an end, so it is sad to report that Adrian Haar has finally hung up his boots and retired from competitive bridge at Berry. Thankyou Adrian for your long-standing & valued support of our club.
Interclub Season is fast approaching with the first outing at the Southern Highlands club in April. Unfortunately, this year, Goulburn Bridge Club has had to ‘pull the pin’ on the Interclub Series due to travel distances and lack of able players. Berry Bridge Club would like to thank Goulburn and their players for the many pleasant and engaging afternoons of competitive teams’ bridge.
Historically, Interclub matches have been played at two monthly intervals, this year Bowral Bridge Club Is hosting their rubber in May, a month after the initial Southern Highlands’ match.
Teams and dates for 2018 are as follows:
Southern Highlands April 18
All things being equal, Berry Bridge Club will play in all four rubbers, so if you are interested in representing the club in a teams’ event please contact me, Marea Allen, on 0417 286 764.
Finally, included in our calendar of events are the Red Points Days and till the end of June are as follows:
March 3---April 7---May 5---June 2nd
