Bridge Drive Sunday 19th October 2008
We would like to thank the ladies for all their help at the Bridge Drive.
They did a splendid job, providing us all with the stamina to continue
with the rest of the event. Thanks
Members of our group enjoying themselves at Coventry with Peter and June.
They say 'life begins at forty' .
Well I'm not so sure in the case of these two members, as they are both twice this age.
For example during this past year they have cruised around the Caribbean, been on Bridge weekends in the UK, which included this Clubs very successful one at the Hilton in Coventry.
This picture was taken in Lisbon, Portugal on their latest adventure, cruising around the Mediterranean on the 'Independence of the Seas', where they visited many destinations including Sardinia, Italy, Spain before returning to Southampton.
They are now planning a trip to the Canaries.
So folks if you want advice on how and where to travel after retirement...........Have a word with Jim (Hobbs) and Margaret (Robey).
Well done to Edna and Janet who were worthy E/W winners at Banningham this morning Monday 10th November.
The first photograph shows them playing on the first table with Bette and Margaret, next Janet is considering which card to play and the last photograph is of the two of them getting ready to go home.
This is for Janet's son Michael Pallett (with two t's) in Melbourne Australia and Edna's sons Anthony in Macclesfield and Neal in Cambridge. I am sure you are all very proud of your mums' achievement.
Sunday 19th October 2008
What a gathering we had here today!!!!
There were 15 tables for this wonderful bridge drive, arranged by Ann.
Guests started arriving at 1.30 pm for a prompt start at 2.00 pm.
Prior to play, we were asked to participate in the purchase of raffle tickets. (The surprise regarding prizes was yet to follow).
Afternoon refreshments, were served at each table just at 4.00 pm. We all tucked in to sandwiches and cakes with a most welcome cup of tea.
Then it was back to play for another hour.
All final scores were completed and prizes of chocolates were given to each winning pair.
Then came the raffle: This was an absolute bonanza, with over 50 prizes generously donated. It was like an Autumnal Christmas, with every recipient going away completely satisfied.
What an achievement Ann. You raised considerable funds for the Village Hall and also was able to send a substanial donation to the village in Malawi. (mentioned in General Information)
For the past three years a group of approximately sixty members of our Bridge Circle have spent an enjoyable weekend in August at the Coventry Hilton hosted by Peter and June Hummel. Thankyou Peter and June for looking after us all so well.
Not only did we play Bridge twice each day, some people visited the local area including Coventry Cathedral, watched films at the Multiplex Cinema, made use of the hotel's leisure facilities, and tried to solve Peter's puzzles. Others had a quick round of golf, attended Ann's seminars, visited the nearby Superstore, went for walks together and generally got to know each other better during the excellent meals in the Voyager Restaurant.
Congratulations to Mary and Mike Duncan who were the 2008 winners of "The Coventry Shield"
I thought you would all like to see how well the miniture conifers are growing in my garden. I bought them earlier this year with the garden voucher you so kindly gave to me. They have been admired by many passers by during the summer and will hopefully continue to give pleasure as they mature. Thank you all very much indeed.
