2022 Traralgon Congress: A Success

The Traralgon Bridge Club conducted its 2022 Congress on 21st and 22nd August, the first face-to-face Congress since 2019.  Players came from various clubs around Gippsland and the eastern suburbs of Melbourne.

The Congress was run at the Italian Australian Club in Morwell, which proved to be an excellent venue.  The event was directed by Keith Katt, a qualified bridge director based at Mirboo North.

Saturday’s play was a Swiss Pairs event, with 30 pairs participating.  This event was won by Steve and Mary Colling from Frankston Bridge Club, runners-up were Helen Porter and Elizabeth Thomson from Sale, and third were Fred Sundermann (Sale) and Roshni Chand (Traralgon).

Sunday’s play was a Swiss Teams event, with 12 teams participating.  This event was won by the team of Arendina Drury, Richard Moss, Jack Kuiper and Deb Anglim, from the South Gippsland and Phillip Island clubs.  Runners-up were George Campbell, Sandor Varga, Judy Banks and Anna Kearon, from the Sale and Bairnsdale clubs.

Both events featured a high standard of play in a friendly atmosphere, and were enjoyed by all participants.

Greg Nicholson (President of Traralgon Bridge Club) thanked the major supporters of the Congress, Loy Yang B Power Station and the Italian-Australian Club, for helping the club to stage a successful event.

Winners of the Swiss Pairs Mary and Steve Colling receive their prize from Greg Nicholson (President, Traralgon Bridge Club), with Keith Katt (Congress Director) at right.

Message from the President

With the easing of Covid restrictions and the onset of winter, now is the time to start embracing an old pastime or embarking on a new one. Bridge is a game for all ages and abilities. It sharpens the mind,challenges the intellect, attempts to synchronise your thoughts with your table partner in a challenging environment. If you are a lapsed player, a whist enthusiast, a euchre or a 500 player you will find the game a challenge.  The Traralgon bridge club meets for 3 hours on a Monday night, Tuesday and Thursday Afternoons. The table fee is $5 for 3 hours play including tea/coffee and a bikkie ( if you are quick). We also offer a 1hour supervised play session on alternate Thursdays. New members are always welcome, but if you are unsure come along as a visitor and observe a few hands. Our membership embraces most decades and skill levels, so come along and join in.

Etiquette

Good Bridge etiquette means you greet opponents, praise both partner and opponents (well played), do not criticize, do not make gratuitis comments (if you had bid this or led that), nor gloat (we got 100%) and finally speak politely to your partner, opponents and especially the Director.

Please contact Greg Nicholson on 0419 365 739 if you are interested in learning to play bridge.
