Lifetime membership

At the Annual General Meeting on 13 December, a lifetime membership was awarded to Noel De Losa.

Lifetime memberships are awarded to people who have been members of the Club for 25 years and who have given exceptional service to the Club.

Noel truly qualifies in this regard, for without him, there would not be any club rooms. Noel's tenacity in searching for suitable premises over a number of years, and then his vision, determined doggedness and enthusiasm for solving renovation problems has given the Club a wonderful gift.

Thank you Noel from the entire Club! And thank you Narelle for allowing Noel to give so much time and energy to the Club. (For more AGM news please see below)

2018 Congress Results

It was a great day at the 2018 Toronto Congress. Everyone had a good time and enjoyed the venue, the food, the playing and the atmosphere.

Thanks must go to the director, Alan Bustany, congress organiser Hans Tiller, caddy Noel De Losa, raffle organiser Trish Thomas, and the people who worked tirelessly in the kitchen - Gail Stahmer, Belinda Barton, Trish Thomas, Jane and Robert Snell, and Gail's granddaughter Hannah.

Thank you also to our fabulous president, Josephine Most, for keeping it all on track and thinking of everything.

Now for the important part - the prize winners!

The Elsie Jenkinson trophy was created in 2012 by the NSW Bridge Association in honour of Toronto Bridge Club's oldest member. Elsie turned 100 in 2012 and was still playing in 2015! Unfortunately we lost Elsie a couple of years ago but the trophy lives on in her memory.

The trophy is presented to the Best Restricted Toronto Team and this year the winners were Graeme Schubert, Maureen Dalziel, Charmain Mills and Anne Corcoran. This team also took out the prize for the Best Restricted Team overall.

The Best Unplaced Toronto Team prize went to Alan Bryce, Margaret Geddes, Ben Mursa and Chris Williams

Third place overall went to the Crocket team from the Brisbane Waters Bridge Club ( 2 team members absent from photo)

Second place went to the Mayo team from the Newcastle Bridge Club

AND first place went to the Robinson team also from the Newcastle Bridge Club

CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL WINNING TEAMS AND TO ALL OTHER TEAMS FOR TURNING UP AND CONTRIBUTING TO A GREAT DAY
