Criteria for Awards

Bega Valley Bridge CluB Inc.

Criteria for Awards

The following eligibility criteria were approved unanimously at a Special Committee Meeting on 29th October 2018, and amended on 29th July 2019, and supersede all previous rules and guidelines.  These criteria shall apply from the date of adoption.

All awards are contested by club members in ‘good standing’ based on events over a club year (1st January to 30th November), except as otherwise stated or as determined by the Committee.  In the event of a tie, award(s) may be granted jointly.  Players may only win one major award each year, in the event of any member winning more than one award, the next most-eligible person shall be granted that trophy or prize.

Jean Parbery Memorial Award

Jean Parbery (1907 - 2000) was a foundation member of the Bega Valley Bridge Club and a great stalwart of the club in its formative years.

Jean donated a trophy in 1989 (the year of the club’s formation) as a perpetual award for the highest individual percentage in the year.  The winner of the inaugural award was Di Woolford with an average of 59.8%.  After Jean’s passing in May 2000, a new trophy was purchased and from then became the Jean Parbery Memorial Award.  Suzanne Donoghue won this award 16 years in a row, having won the original award 8 times during Jean’s lifetime.

The eligibility criteria for this award is as follows:

  • Based on highest individual percentage in a club year from matchpoint statistics kept by the Masterpoint Secretary;
