What a great start to the 2018 Festive season we enjoyed on Tuesday night.
A welcome drink was followed by some exquisite food. There was a choice of a hot dish of beef bourguignon and rice or a cold buffet table including turkey, ham, beef, poached salmon, prawns, eggs and much more including numerous salads. We then had a choice of numerous desserts including fresh fruit salad, jellies, mince pies and many various pastries followed by a delicious cheese board and French bread/biscuits plus perhaps another drink or two!! Margaret and Chris, you did us proud again - thanks for a lovely spread and all for nothing.
Prize Giving followed - 2018 Tuesday Pairs Winners were Margaret LaCrosse & Gill Morley and 2018 Thursday Pairs Winners were Chris & Margaret LaCrosse. Chris thanked the Committee for their hard work especially Linda our Secretary and she was presented with a Plant arrangement.
We then got down to the serious business of the evening- playing bridge!! Normally we play Chicago Bridge but with 8 tables it was agreed to play duplicate bridge for the most coveted trophy of the Year - the "Camel" Trophy. It was agreed this year that the winners would be the pair with the most outright bottoms. Following the festive spirit consumed there were a number of pairs targeting for the trophy but we are pleased to announce that the 2018 Camel winners were Rona Hodges and Tim Mason - congratulations.
