HAYLING WIN THE FRIENDSHIP CUP
The annual teams match against Emsworth, hosted this year by Hayling, was played on Wednesday 17th April. Congratulations to the team, Alan, Eileen, Elissa, Leigh, Mary, Mike, Neil, Nigel, Ron, Sally, Shirley and, not least, Jim, who organised the event. Thanks also to Chris for volunteering to help behind the scenes.
This is the famous hand that featured in Moonraker. 007 was playing a high stakes game of bridge with the evil Hugo Drax who had somewhat of a reputation for cheating. However on this occasion it was James Bond who 'fixed' the cards and then opened (!) 7 Clubs. Drax doubled: Bond redoubled.
You don't need to know the plot of this book and subsequent film to work out whether Bond's contract could be brought down.
