Congratulations to our 2018 Champions Lee Bristow and Veronica Sullivan.
Their win came ahead of a very strong and evenly matched field. In qualifying the four leading North South pairs were only seperated by 9 match points or 1.1%.
Even in the final, a 5 table Howell movement, there was a four way tie for 3rd position.
Lee and Veronica both come from Dunedoo though Veronica recently moved to Mudgee. Maybe some new tricks have been invented in Dunedoo.
Again Congratulations to the new Champions.
Chris Cox & Di Bates
Brian McCarney & Judy Bowman
In a year where the majority of pairs stayed together following the Championship qualifying round we finished with 9 tables contesting the consolation event. Of these 13 qualified as possible winners.
The Consolation winners and winners of the Barbara Green trophy for 2018 were Chris Cox and Di Bates (North/South) and Brian McCarney and Judy Bowman (East/West). Congratulations to our winners where both tht eventual winners finished with reasonably good margins.
This year saw the emergence of new champions in the annual Sparkes Cup.
Winners were Marelle Irvine and Particia Vetter who got home by less than 2% from Robin & Walter Suttor.
Winners came through a 6½ table Howell movement and won in what was in reality a very closely contested event.
Situated 270km north-west of Sydney and 470m above sea level Mudgee is situated in the beautiful Cudgegong Valley. It derived its name from the Wiradjuri Aboriginal word "Moothi" meaning "Nest in the Hills".
It is a picturesque town with its charm provided by many fine old homes, public buildings and Churches some of which date back as far as the 1850's. It is known for its excellent wine and honey as well as super fine Merino wool.Grapes grown in the high red soils have produced excellent quality wines for over 140 years.
