As you may have noticed, Monday's results for the 'no fear' section are a disaster. Our computer was unkind to our guest director, Marcia Scudder. Apologies, Marcia. Please be aware that we'll do everything possible to resurrect the proper results, but it might take some time. Technology!

Hunters Hill Bridge Club will be participating in the Australia-wide Open Pairs Competition on Monday, 29 August. On that day, there will NOT be a ‘no-fear’ section. Instead, the room will be divided into those who wish to enter the competition and those who do not. No prior registration is required; there is a $5 surcharge. It’s not often we get to compete on such a grand scale! Read more below.

Sadly, Mickey Kaplan passed away last week. Her memorial service was on Friday. She was only a member at the club for a few years. Thanks to Peter's efforts in transporting her to and from the club, she was able to play on Mondays.
The winners of this event were Carol Sheldrake & Kathie De Palo.
The runners up were:
2nd - Susan Spinks & Anthony Curtin (there's no holding these two back at the moment!)
3rd - Lyn Mallesch & Joseph So.
Thanks to all participants for making this a successful event & a special thank you to our director, Peter.
