New Club President

At our Management Committee meeting on September 21st, Janet Rogers formally tendered her resignation from her position as Club President. The Committee would like to express our most sincere thanks to Janet for her excellent service in the two years she was at the helm. They were a particularly difficult two years with several complex issues needing to be managed - not least the impact of Covid-19 restrictions and the need to offer on-line bridge alternatives to our members.  Janet has worked tirelessly and efficiently to ensure the club continues to thrive in these challenging times.

At the same meeting Ken Simpson was unanimously chosen as our new Club President. Welcome to the chair, Ken!

2019 News
Whoo Hoo the Ashes return home in 2019!
Whoo Hoo the Ashes return home in 2019!

2019 sees the Ashes return home to Bendigo once more.  Our heroes, Sue Napier and Margaret Smart can't contain the smiles at their triumph.

Ballarat were wonderful hosts as usual and were very galant in defeat,  The Ashes has this traditional rivalry, but the day is all about meeting our long time friends at Ballarat and enjoying the day.

This tradition goes back to the 1990's and is a highlight of our calendar each March.

Put March in your calendar as a day not to be missed each year if you have not experienced this day of fun and fellowship across the bridge table.

Another successful year for our club, celebrated at the Schweppes Centre
