On Friday night  the 10th November, 20 of us took part in the national LoveBlock tournament. Sally Shaw and Christine Wood took out the top mixed grade and came 5th out of 890 which is an amazing result. It follows Sue Gordon and Gerda Corporaal winning the top junior prize last year and coming third overall out of 846 pairs. We hope more of you will join us next year.

Hosting Kawerau & Opotiki

Next Monday the Opotiki and Kawerau clubs have been invited to play at our club. This returns their hosting of our club earlier this year and those of you who attended one/both of these evenings are aware of what a high standard they set with the beautiful suppers provided.

 

Please join us for a fun night with our bridge neighbours and bring along a contribution for supper. 🍰
