Bairnsdale 2018 Congress

Once again our annual Congress was a resounding success with over $3000.00 being raised for the club and lots of great bridge competition.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who contributed in some way, it is definitely a team effort. Thanks to all those members who provided food items. Our Congress is renowned for the quality and quantity of food we provide, and this year was no exception.

A big thank you to Phillip Goode who did an awesome job of pulling it all together, Martin for directing (very ably supported by Chris H.), Elaine and Maureen and their helpers for running the kitchen, the committee and everyone who helped set up, pack up, clean, sell raffle tickets, collect money etc.

Thank you also to all the local players who took part (particularly our newer players and those called in at the last moment) who participated in great spirit. Our local area was well represented in the placings.

It is encouraging to see so many bridge players getting behind our club and is very much appreciated.

Cheers,

Ann
