Players looking for a partner or a team...
Contact the convenor if you want a player request listed and (asap) when you want your request removed.
Bendigo members: This year we will not have access to the venue before 8 am on Saturday, which means we need to set up quickly. Many hands make light work. If you are able to help, please come to the Conservatory at 8.
Looking for somewhere to eat on Saturday 27th. We've booked a table at the Reservoir Hotel. If you want to join us, please contact Barb Evans (details on p.2 of the flyer).
Martin Willcox Workshops
Ballarat BC have engaged Martin Willcox to conduct three workshops on playing strategies for intermediate and advanced players. They have generously decided to invite members of other clubs to attend - free of charge! The workshops will be held at Ballarat BC (1001 Eyre Street) on Wednesdays: 3 May, 7 June and in July (date tba), and will run from 10am-3pm (BYO lunch).
Alert! Ballarat BC have now advised there is no restriction on numbers and no need to book. Just roll up - the more the merrier!
2023 Ashes - Ballarat Win
The Ashes were contested for the 25th time on Saturday 22 April at Ballarat BC. Unfortunately (for us) the hosts were runaway winners and retained the trophy but congratulations to our best-performed Bendigo pair (with 3rd place overall) Ron Wescott & Barb Evans. Thank you to all our pairs that took part and a big thank you to our gracious and generous hosts. Full results are available on the Bridge Unlimited website in the Results > Victorian Congress Events section.
A link to the May BV bulletin can be found in the Bridge Musings panel below (scroll down). It includes a listing for our Congress.
Please note the start time for our Wednesday Relaxed Pairs sessions is now 12.30pm (was 12 noon).
Monthly Nosh & Natter
Our MN&N social dinners will resume on Thursday 23 February. Venue (as before) will be the Kangaroo Flat Sports Club at 6pm. This is an informal social event - a chance for members (and their spouses / partners) to have a friendly natter about... anything really, over some good pub food and drink.
Need more details? Contact Graeme Hegarty on 0428 380 180.
