News from the VBA
The June VBA bulletin has landed. You can find it in the Bridge Musings panel below. Our very own Seb Wright cops a mention - as do our congress results.
Our first congress since 2019 took place over the weekend (28-29 May) at The Conservatory, All Seasons Resort. Not surprisingly, numbers were down from pre-Covid times but with 46 entries for the Pairs event and 15 for the Teams, we had plenty of lively competition.
Congratulations to Pairs winners Leo Saoud & Gus Ghali. Best performed Bendigo pair (with a very respectable 4th place) were Barb Evans & Ron Wescott – doubly respectable because Ron was playing through the pain of a recent knee replacement.
The Teams event was won by Doug Newlands, Richard Laurie and Gavin and Kirsten Bailey. Best performed Bendigo team was Yvonne Forrest (playing her first congress), Kaye Parker, Janet Rogers & Rosemary Monotti – well done them.
Full results are available on the Bridge Unlimited website – click on the link on our Useful Links web page then click on Results > Victorian Congress Events.
The congress doesn’t just happen - many people contributed their time and energy to make it a success. Special mentions go to Janet R, Cathie S, the Goddards and Rosemary M for their work in planning, organising and setting up and tearing down the event. (It would be appreciated if more club members would volunteer to help with next year’s congress). Special thanks to Ken S and Adrian D for making themselves available at very short notice as an emergency pair; and (No show without Punch) to our director, Martin Willcox – authoritative and entertaining as ever. And finally, a shout-out to the management and staff of All Seasons for the delicious food and their behind-the-scenes work to make sure the event went smoothly.
