Thank You Party for Elaine Kehoe
Thank You Party for Elaine Kehoe
KDBC's I/N section held a party for Elaine on October 12/2017 thanking her for her time and work getting the I/N Mentor game off the ground.  It is our most successful way of introducing new players to our club and is held the second Thursday evening of every month.  Elaine sends these highlights: "Soon after the mentor games started a mentee and a mentor met at a local swimming pool.  Each was stepping out of the shower when they recognized each other from bridge. They immediately began discussing hands totally unaware of their lack of attire."  These two definitely have their priorities straight!  The second story she shared was when she paired a couple of university students, Keith Prytulka (Gaylia's grandson) and Tom Doyle  and they pulled off an 80% game. She heard that they are still playing bridge. Gayle Seto and Kay Loughlin have paired up as co-ordinators to continue Elaine's great work. (James Gould and Gerarda Smith had a big game scoring 74.44% at the party). All is great with the I/Ns!

Hamish Taylor, I/N co-ordinator and John Gerretsen, President presented Elaine with a gift, flowers and a hug at the party.  

Cold Outside but some players are Hot
Cold Outside but some players are Hot
Recently we have had some pretty hot scores at the club starting with James Gould and Gerarda Smith on October 12. They had an amazing 74.44% game. On November 3rd Suzanne Ryan and Gonny Moncur made the I/N 70% Club for the second time this year with 72%. Brian Moorby and Charlie placed 1st overall in the John McAdam Common Game Charity Event competing against 3227 pairs with a 70.35% at the club increased to 72.33 field percent. Then on November 8 Sharon Boal and Chris Caswell jumped onto both the Open 70% and the ABC chart with 70.17%. Kirti made the Open 70% list for the 4th time this year on November 10. I think it the hottest this club has been since the start of record keeping.
