Back in 2002 a young schoolboy, Blair Fisher, attended this club's bridge lessons with Bruce Owen. Petsy Ralph, Betty Bourne and myself were fellow learners and can remember that Blair had very good card sense from the beginning and soon developed into a very good player. While the rest of the class has given up on bridge or are languishing in the lower ranks of players, Blair has climbed the ladder to the very highest level - Gold Grand Master.
There have been two articles in national newspapers lately encouraging people to take up bridge.
This one first appeared in the Taupo times and was republished in the NZ Herald. Follow this link the article. Taupo Bridge Club Lessons
The second article in the Taranaki Daily News features a High School student encouraging her peers to learn bridge
See this article concerning the suspension of the world No1 player for use of prohibited drugs. https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2019/mar/01/world-no1-bridge-player-suspended-after-failing-a-drugs-test-geir-helgemo. We wont be introducing random testing at our club just yet.
