President's Message

It is with great pleasure that I assume the role of President of The RACV Bridge Club. I would like to thank our past president Mary Stoney for her tireless efforts in fostering a club of friendship and inclusion regardless of skill level. I am very fortunate that Mary’s stalwart committee; Sue Condos and Wal Reid will remain in their roles.

We are very privileged as RACV Bridge players to have the full support of the RACV Club and I look forward to working with Caroline King, Kim Fisher and Claire McParland to encourage the development of this wonderful Bridge Club.

I am passionate about Bridge, it provides the opportunity for camaraderie, challenge and competition (my three C’s) not found anywhere else! I look forward to meeting you all at the bridge table in the spirit of the three C’s.
