Congratulations to Christine Houghton awarded Grand Master level.
Members of Berry Bridge Club recently bid farewell to Audrey Griffin a past President and long time member of the club.
Audrey first joined the club in its infancy and was afounding member. She first joined the club in May, 2000 and was elected to the committee in November 2001 where she successfully served for five years. In 2002 Audrey was elected President and held this position for the next four years.
Audrey and her committee spearheaded the move to the club becoming incorporated and this was achieved in January, 2003.
During her Committee years many progressive changes were introduced including, the first steps to scoring computerisation, interclub tournaments with both Bowral, Southern Highlands and Batemans Bay, air conditioning at the club’s home base at the Berry Masonic Centre and purchase of general storage and modern office equipment which went to streamlining the playing conditions for members. Audrey was a few months shy of being a continuous member for 18 years.
Audrey will be greatly missed by all members of Berry Bridge club and the bridge community of the Shoalhaven, she and her husband have moved interstate to be closer to family.
We owe a great debt of thanks to Audrey and wish her and her husband all the best in their new life.
