Matamata Intermediate Tournament

Quite a few local faces among 14 tables playing at Matamata yesterday. See who you can pick out. Matamata members took out most of the prizes and also leading the Intermediate League table but good to see our people participating. Last round of the league is in Cambridge on 16 October. Junior League final is at our Club 9 October. It would be great to see a similar turnout.

Area Pairs

For those looking for some low cost, face to face bridge, grab a partner and be at Cambridge Bridge Club at 9:45 am next Sunday 22 May. There will be Open Pairs but any Waikato area members can play. Tournament format, byo lunch.

Paper Plus and Toyworld Intermediate Tournament

How lucky were we to be able to hold our Intermediate Tournament 2 weekends ago??  I would especially like to thank our kitchen ladies, Cherrie, Alison M and Noeline.  We could not hold these events with out our volunteers.  Also a special mention and thanks to our front of house raffle seller extraordinaire, Sally.  We made a whopping $300+ 

BBO Tournaments Information

Details of the tournaments that are being hosted by various Waikato club members can be found on the Waikato Bays region's website https://www.waikatobays.bridge-club.org/.  The results are published there too in our usual format that is more user friendly than the BBO results table.

On our website I have added a link to the very useful BBO guide written by Karen Martelleti that is also on the Waikato Bays site.  You will find the link under the "About Us" menu item

Level 4 lockdown

*****  Unfortunately we cannot use the bridge club during Level 4 lockdown. There are on line bridge sessions available around 1pm daily and also in the evenings if you're keen. Find a partner and register up to a couple of hours ahead. I am happy to assist anyone needing help to log in and start playing. We hope to see you all back at the Club when we drop to a lower and safer level. Stay safe everyone. *****
