  New Custodians

We are so excited that Jan and Peter have entrusted us to look after the Bayside Bridge Club.   Bayside Bridge Club will continue to foster bridge players of all standards in a safe, social and welcoming environment.

We have enjoyed meeting many of you over the last couple of weeks.  We look forward to forging deeper relationships.  We thought we’d share a little bit about ourselves.

Roxy Kruger – I work in the financial planning industry, am a bridge, dog, beach and food lover but most importantly, a mother of two wonderful boys who are now at university.  I started playing bridge at an all girls school “to meet boys” as the bridge club played against our brother school.  That plan was successful as some of the friends I made there remain friends today.  I have played with many of you since I joined Bayside Bridge Club around 13 years ago (where I started learning about systems for the first time).  

 Glen Kruger - Most importantly, I’m Roxy’s husband, privileged to be so and lucky to have had her in my life for the last 30 or so years.  It’s our 29th anniversary this year.  I have worked in the non-profit world for most of my working life and am excited to be taking on the challenge of running a bridge club.  You will have to bear with me as I learn the ropes and learn the game of bridge, which Roxy loves so much. Rest assured though, I am a quick learner and looking forward to having you all show me how to continue to make Bayside Bridge Club the club where everyone feels comfortable and valued.

 Alastair Lowe - I've spent most of my working life in the finance and industrial services industries. I was introduced to kitchen bridge about 15 years ago and have been a member of Bayside for about 7 years.  The opportunity to combine my two biggest loves - working with people and bridge is one I couldn't pass by.

  A Loving Farewell to Jan and Peter 😢

A Special Message from Jan and Peter

After 15 wonderful years of Bridge and friends, lessons and competitions, parties and cakes, tea parties and charity days, and of course drinkies after the game, the time has come to retire…..

We made it through COVID, with plenty of time to think about the next chapter of our lives. We have many things still left to do, many places still to visit and of course our wonderful family to enjoy.

It’s a heart wrenching decision, for we will miss you all, but the time has come to retire.

So……..

LOOKING FORWARD
We have thought very seriously about who we could find to carry the club forward in our same style, encouraging safe, social, and fair play that we all expect at Bayside Bridge club.

And so, it is with great pleasure we welcome three wonderful people, who believe wholly in our ethos of fostering a safe friendly and social environment.  We are very pleased, in fact thrilled to announce the new owners of Bayside Bridge Club, you know 2 of them already, Alastair Lowe (Sunday, Monday, Wednesday and Friday) and Roxy Kruger (Sunday and Monday evening) joined by Roxy’s charming husband Glen. We feel extremely comfortable to leave you in their very capable hands. Peter has even shared with Glen some of your favourite recipes!

We could not have retired without leaving you in safe hands. Hands that will guide and nurture the club, one of the oldest clubs in Melbourne, started in the mid-sixties, and now one of the larger clubs.   We’re absolutely sure the club will continue to grow and provide a fabulous service to all bridge players new and old.

Rest assured Karen will still be involved as will Denise and Val, Sally and Geoff which is great, you’ll hardly miss us at all!

Peter and I would like to give a huge THANK YOU to you all!   

All of you have made the Bayside club the very wonderful friendly club that it is. For a club is nothing without its members …… and you’re the BEST !!    We will be around until early March then we’re off on a road trip, one Peter has been planning for a while.

We wish Roxy, Alastair and Glen …… and you….. all the very best
 
Happy Bridging
Jan and Peter

  Covid19 Restrictions Update 17 February 2021

"From 11:59pm tonight, we will largely return to the previous rules – while keeping a watchful eye on some of the riskier settings.

There’ll no longer be four reasons to leave home. The five-kilometre restriction will no longer apply.

Restaurants and retail can reopen. Same too with community facilities, entertainment venues and all other public places – although some additional limits on crowd sizes will be in place."
