2022 CLUB CHAMPIONS

 

Congratulations to our 2022 Club Champions Marelle Irvine and Barbara Green.Given the boards as set to achieve 64.81% is a wonderful effort.

The battle for runners up was a closely contested event with only 4 match points seperating 4 pairs. In the long run Jane Scott and Anne Johnston just got there ahead of Chris Cox and Sam Stephens.

Marelle and Barbara are not new to this achievement. Barbara had won in 2014 with Brian McCarney and previously in 2008 with Sandra Capper. Marelle won in 2019 with Sandra Capper.

Again congratulations to our new "champs".

GREEN PLATE 2022

Frank Trent & Bill Bleechmore./ Rosemary Francis & Penny Mowat relaxing after a successful day

In a greatly reduced field this year there was still healthy competition for the Green Plate.

This years winners for North/South were Frank Trent and Bill Bleechmore while East/West was taken out by neighbours Penny Mowat and Rosemary Francis.

With the rules for this trophy calling for two winners the reduced field made this quite a challenge for the directors, In the long run a Mitchell movement was played with 8 boards a round. This meant plenty of bridge even though the opposition facing you may not have changed all that often.

Congratulations to our winners.

2022 SPARKES CUP

 

Greta and Sandy relaxing after their victory

After many disappointing turn outs on Friday mornings 9 pairs fought ot this years Sparkes Cup.

This years winners were Greta Kroll and Sandy Steele-Park who just scraped home by 1 mere match point from Val Heferen and Brian McCarney.

While this is Sandy's first success with this annual event Greta on the other hand has tasted success in the past.

 In both 2000, 2002 and 2003 she partnered Mollie Poole with success and again in 2005 had success with Yvonne Kelly.

Congratulations girls and thanks to all those who participated. It is helping show a slight resurgence in Friday Bridge.
