On Thursday evening seven pairs rounded off the year’s bridge playing a Howell movement. Top were Phil Quinn & Nicky Bainbridge with 63.89 just ahead of Peter & Vera Iredale with 61.11. Well done to Phil whose only been playing a few months. This result leaves Zena Hutchinson, Janet Stuchbury and Cynthia Martin in first, second and third position for the champagne handicap; it’s only half way through the series and there’s less than 3% between the first six!
