Vale Ross Bennett

It is with much sadness that we announce the passing of Ross Bennett on 9 November.

Ross joined the Toronto Bridge Club in 2008 and had played with several partners over the years. Ross was also a member of several other bridge clubs in the Lake Macquarie area.

Ross will be remembered fondly for his big personality and his gentle behaviour.

2023 National Restricted Pairs

On Monday 30 October TBC took part in the ABF National Restricted Pairs. This competition was an Australia-wide event for players with fewer than 300 masterpoints (as at the end of September). There were several newer players taking part which was wonderful to see, however the winners on this occasion were Kerrie Barnes and Diane Tait with 59.63%, followed closely by Michelle Miller and Ros Nicholson, with Belinda Barton and Pam Greene coming in third position.

Congratulations to all who took part!
