Happy Birthday Pat!

We wished a very happy birthday to Pat Ayres today. Pat has been a partner-finder extraordinaire over the years. The committee is very grateful for her help. Much cake was consumed in her honour! Click below to see Pat and her enormous cake.


The date of our congress - Sunday, 10 September - is approaching.
Members & visitors are reminded that entries close on 4 September. After that date, entries will be at the discretion of the director.
We are expecting to have a separate novice (teams with less than 100 MPs)/restricted (teams with less than 400 MPs) section so that entrants who fall within these categories will not have to play against more experienced players.
Entries can be made on-line through the NSWBA website at www.nswba.com.au/tourn/calendar or directly to our convenor, Di Connors, at connors_ds@hotmail.com


As a part of the Women Going Places initiative by the NSWBA, the Women's Teams of Three provides a great opportunity for aspiring female players to play along side some of our top women players.
The event, which specifically caters for all levels of experience, is held over two nights, Wednesdays 13th & 27th September. It will take place in the NSWBA headquarters, Goulburn St, Sydney.
For full details concerning the event, please see the flyer attached.


Congratulations to Marlene Watts & Tim Cregan for winning this event.
The runners up were Bina Kassam & Joseph So in 2nd place, Margaret Gidley-Baird & Charles Klassen in 3rd & Mary Atkinson & Peter Campbell in 4th.
This was a keenly contested competition with only .26% difference between 1st & 4th place!
Well done to all participants for making this a successful event. Many thanks, also, to our director, Brian Soutter.
