Junior Champions for 2018

After 4 weeks of competition the Junior Club champions for 2018 have been found. 7 junior pairs completed the 4 nights of play with another 5 pairs of more senior players making up numbers. The juniors acquitted themselves very well. In the handicap results Junior pairs took out 7 of the first 9 places leaving 3 senior pairs in their wake.

Well Done to our Novices

Four of our novice players from last year's lessons travelled to Matamata on Sunday to take part in the novice tournament organised by the Waikato Bays region. Elske and Edite achieved the unusual feat of getting exactly 50% in both the morning and afternoon sessions and finished 5= overall. Karen and Helen also took part and finished a little further down the field.

Friday - Board 22

Some of you will have noticed that there are no results on line for Board 22 at last Friday's session. Somehow the North and West hands were swapped around part way through the session. I was not able to work out from the contracts and scores just where the change happened so in order to be fair to everybody I cancelled the board completely.

John Hits 90

At our regular Friday session today (Friday 9th Feb)we welcomed John Barry into our over Ninety club although his birthday is not until tomorrow. We had a special afternoon tea complete with birthday cake and a glass of bubbly. John was presented with a beautiful personalised card made by Linda Sloan and signed by those club members present.

We had a little dealing mishap this week and did not play the hands we should have on either Tuesday or Wednesday The correct hands are now linked to both lots of results but anything that is showing on XClubs for Te Awamutu for November 28 and 29 may not be correct.

New Phone at the Club

We now have a new portable phone in the office. The number is the same as before BUT you must dial 07 first both to ring in and when ringing a local number.
