John and Jo have again had a successful year of Bridge in 2013 taking out the HNBC Sally and Gordon Ingate Championship in October.
In addition they achieved a marvelous result in the Australian Wide Open Pairs and featured in the Australian Bridge Quarterly Magazine in December:-
"The heat winners in Hawks Nest were Jo and John Younghusband with 65.21% finishing 24th overall.
They were married in Hong Kong in April 1957, and began playing bridge together shortly afterwards. They started with Goren (4 card suits) then Acol followed by Nottingham Club, a strong club system similar to Precision. Finally, they adopted Five Card Major Standard. They played at the Lindfield Bridge Club until the late 1980’s, when John decided to have a rest from competitive bridge.
After arriving at Tea Gardens in 2007, they resumed their old partnership and basically play Baronised Acol with additions and variations such as Roman Jump overcalls and Multi Twos.
Jo is in her 78th year while John is in his 84th. They now only play once a week at the Hawks Nest Bridge Club where John continues as a rostered Director."
