Bridge Sayings
Bridge Sayings

Good Bridge etiquette means you greet opponents, praise both partner and opponents (well played), do not criticize (good try), do not make gratuitis comments (if you had bid this or led that), not gloat (we got 100%) and finally speak politely to your partner, opponents and especially the Director.

Christmas Dinner Monday 10th Dec
Christmas Dinner Monday 10th Dec

Monday's Dinner and the evening  was a great success very similar to last Tuesday's Dinner, except the hearty rendition of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer was performed by duet Helen and Heather who also danced their way through the performance.

The poor deuce prize was tossed around all night again and again finished with Ken Tierney. (Ken is considering going professional).

The pictures of all the happy winners are shown above with N/S being won by Hannah Green and Pat Still with 59.52%, E/W winners were a very happy Helen Porter and Anne Den Houting with 63.10%, the Secret Percentage (51.2%) was won by Monika Cornell and Michael Zarb with the incredibly close score of 51.19%. Hannah Green was an obvious winner of the Best Dressup prize

Christmas Dinner Tuesday 4th Dec

A great day was organised by Marion and the committee and it and the meal were thoroughly enjoyed by all.

After a rousing rendition of "Rudolph the red nosed Reindeer" by duet Geoff and Pat the following prizes were awarded:-

N/S winners Greg Nicholson and Jean Barbour with 60.47%

E/w winners Anne Den Houting and Ken Tierney with 64.09%

Mystery percentage (49.3%) winners were Bee Bodin and Liz McKenzie

Best dressed up was shared by Phil Goode and Robyn Couch and her reindeer

The deuce prize (the poor little soft elephant) was tossed from one winner to another all day but finally came to rest with the final winner and was awarded to Ken Tierney

New Silver Life Master
New Silver Life Master

Moira Hecker has recently been promoted to the rank of Sliver Life Master by the Australian Bridge Federation. Since commencing her bridge journey in 2001, Moira has accumulated over 500 Masterpoints to reach this milestone. This has included playing in State and National level competitions to gain the necessary red and gold points. Moira has contributed a great deal to the club as a Committee Member and is the current club President. She says that she has enjoyed the social and competitive side of the game and has been keen to put something back into the club and to help other people to take up this great game. She has also been President of the Eastern Region Bridge Association, a delegate to the Victorian Bridge Association and has just returned from representing the Gippsland region in a national teams competition in Tweed Heads. Traralgon Bridge Club now has six home club Silver Life Masters, which is a great achievement for a smaller rural club.
