Country Teams Regional Final

The 2021 Country Teams Regional Final was held on Saturday 25th September on Realbridge, sponsored by Newcastle Bridge Club.  The following has been provided by Janice McKay -


On Saturday 25 September, we had a team play in the Regional round of the Country Teams via RealBridge.  Seven x 8 board matches were played with two teams from Tomaree, two teams from Newcastle, two teams from Maitland and one from Charlestown, with a "house" team from Newcastle making up an even number.  Unfortunately, our first qualifying team comprising K Stien, S Dowling, R Lovell and J Carson were unable to play, so the gong went to our second team – J & B McKay, R Shearer and P Scaife.  Peter was also unable to play so Cheryl was the substitute from our third team.  Our team had an enjoyable day (despite some technology problems in the McKay household) and placed 6th with 3 wins and 4 losses.  The winning team was Newcastle 1.

Hunter Interclub

The first round of 2020 Hunter Interclub was held on Sunday 15th March at Rathmines, sponsored by the Toronto Bridge Club.  Charlestown was represented by Judy Hayes, Cheryl Pletz, Jody Swaine and John Stuart.  They managed 3 wins and 3 losses in the 6 nine board matches coming 6th overall out of 20 teams.  The event was somewhat overshadowed by the Coronavirus pandemic, with hygiene precautions heavily emphasized.  The Toronto Bridge club provided an excellent spread of food and Alan Bustany directed the day with his usual aplomb.
