Bray Harbour Bridge Club

At the first AGM of the Bridge Club the members voted to adopt our constitution and a Committee for next season:

  • Ray Lally - President
  • Michael Gordon- Secretary
  • Des McGarry - Treasurer
  • Stephen Hogg - Tournament Organiser
  • Maeve McCormac, Claire Cassoni, Bob Barry and Dermot Kane - Committee

Our first season was a great success. Our members, of all standards, turned out in great numbers to play friendly competitive bridge with an average of 10 tables and a fantastic turnout during the summer with an average of 8 tables. And we had fantastic participation in our social events. Michael Lacey has continued to be the best bridge host in Bray.

We hope to grow on this success in 2016 - 17 and to get the ball rolling our annual summer BBQ took place in the sailing club on Sunday July 31st.

Finally, to make sure we have a vibrant club we are looking for new members. All grades are welcome and we would encourage you to bring your bridge friends to the club over the summer to see for themselves what a great club Bray Harbour Bridge club is!

Handicap Competiton

Handicap Competition

The competition will be held four nights throughout the season. The best three handicapped scores for each pair will be used to find the winners of the competition. The handicap for each player will be calculated on the week of each competition using only season results over the previous 12 months.

Your handicap for the next handicap competition will be posted here prior to play.

Competition Formats 2015 - 2016 season

Last season's 2 competitions and Individual & Pairs placings

Turkeys voting for Xmas

Des McGarry and George McGarry (no relation - ish) got the best score for N/S on the handicapped Turkey night, while Michael Condren and Bernie Jones came top for E/W

Handicap Pairs

There was great competition of the Handicap Pairs right up to the final result and the worthy winners of the beautiful and memory-laden trophy were Marie and Ray. 

The final placings were:

  1. Marie Callanan & Raymond Lally
  2. Fitz and Gay Cunningham
  3. Des McGarry and George McGarry

Consistently best scoring player in the club

Yet again, taking his top 20, Victor has the best individual score of all the club memebers - please go to "Competitions"in the top left-hand corner of this page to see how close the scoring was for the last season

Consistently best scoring pair in the club

The powerhouse that is Victor and Stephen showed again why they are so formidable with a Master Points top 20 score more than 100 above their nearest rivals, but it's up to the competition to challenge them next season, a prospect they will surely relish.  Again, please go to "Competitions"in the top left-hand corner of this page to see the detailed data.

Congrats to all.
