Wiltshire has two new Grand Mistresses!!!

Playing in a Congress in Cornwall last weekend, Gayle won her 600th Green Point and achieved her lifetime ambition of promotion to Grand Master. At about the same time, Jenny Gray, Gayle's long time friend and bridge partner of almost 10 years between 2002 qnd 2012, was also promoted to Grand Master.  This is an extraordinary feat of perseverance and ability on the part of both Gayle and Jenny.  A magnificent achievement - congratulations to them both.

They join a very select group of just four other Grand Masters in Wiltshire.
