Bray Swiss Congress

Bray Swiss Congress took place in The Royal Hotel, Bray

1st to 3rd September.

What a weekend in Bray. The first full congress that Bray Bridge Club has held for 40 years was a terrific success. Bridge players from all over the country turned up to play on all three days. Everyone involved in organising and running the congress can be very proud of how the competitions for all grades were attended and run.

A special thanks to John, Joe and Bernadette, the TDs for the weekend who kept things moving despite the huge numbers.

The results of all the competitions are posted on our website - congratulations to all the winners.

Finally, well done to Anne Daly, Brendan Martin and the others on the congress committee for organising a fantastic event.

We're looking forward to next year's congress already!

March is Novice Month 2017

Eileen O'Doherty Memorial and Patricia Rossiter Herman Trophies

The Intermediate Bs and Novices pairs competitions took place in  Dun Laoghaire Bridge Centre on Sunday 12th March. Unfortunately, there was a very low turn-out for both competitions. This could have been because of the new day or the new location.  It certainly was not because of John Royds who again this year did a fantastic job directing both competitions and putting all the players at their ease.

 

 

The Eileen O'Dorerty Memorial trophy went to Marie McGarry, for the second year, and her partner Alexi Silva.

 

 

Marion Fox & Julia Rayel won the Patricia Rossiter Herman..

 

The prizes for the competitions went to:

Eileen O'Doherty Memorial

  1. Mary McGarry & Alex Silva

  2. Hal Hosford & Theresa O'Carroll

Patricia Rossiter Herman

  1. Marion Fox & Julia Rayel

  2. Eleanor Callanan & Margaret MacGhabhann
