Mary was a strong supporter of bridge in East Gippsland and will be missed by all our members.

Due to the uncertainty with Covid,  the committee has made the difficult decision to cancel our annual Congress in October.

2019 Congress

Our Congress was once again a resounding success. Entries were up on the last few years (52 pairs and 27 teams) which resulted in a healthy profit of $5200.00 (our 2nd best result in 10 years). We also received lots of praise and positive feedback from competitors regarding the great venue, smooth and friendly organisation and wonderful catering. It certainly is a great advertisement for our club and reflects the hard work and generosity of our members and committee.

The Congress is months in the planning and a great team effort but I would like to acknowledge the extra work done by the following individuals:

Phillip Goode-for his role as convenor, overseeing all entries, securing sponsorships, liaising with Martin and working 2 days in the kitchen.

Robin Cotton- our Congress secretary and publicity officer

Brian Sampson- for meticulously managing everything financial including entries, prizes, floats etc

Maureen Hack and Elaine Newcomen- for coordinating all things food! And their helpers in the kitchen-Helen Sampson, Mary Baldwin and Anne Brumby

Kaye Munro-for her beautiful flower arrangements

Maureen Hack, Marg Hillier and Marg Webster- for donations of raffle prizes

BBC committee (and roped in husbands and wives)-for setting up and dismantling the venue, transporting goods and cleaning the hall plus a myriad of other jobs along the way.

Finally to all our members who offered and provided support by way of donated items and/or playing and helping over the weekend, a huge thank you-your efforts are recognised and very much appreciated.

Cheers,

Ann
