Merche passed away last Sunday. She was having trouble breathing before Christmas and very quickly had to be moved to an aged care facility. She died only weeks later from a recurring illness. Her memorial service will be held at Macquarie Park Cemetery & Crematorium (Camellia Chapel) on Wednesday, 3 February at 2:30 pm. We'll miss her.
There will be no session on Tuesday night, 26 January. Happy Australia Day!
We had a nice showing of club members at John’s funeral today.
Here are a few stories that show the great character that made John one of the most admired members of our bridge club.
One member says that John may be the only player who has never lost his cool and 100% always retained his calm and collected demeanour when playing bridge. We all know how bridge can lead to heated situations, but John never succumbed.

John Wagner has passed away peacefully after a long illness. John was a member of the Hunters Hill Bridge Club for many, many years - he certainly loved his bridge. He was a Life Member, having been the Treasurer for a very long time in the early days and the Auditor in more recent years. We have been missing him at the table for some time now. His memorial service will be at All Saints Church, Ferry Street, Hunters Hill on Tuesday, 19 January at 10:30 a.m.
We're very fortunate to have secured acclaimed teacher, Anita Curtis, to give beginners' lessons again in 2016. Her lessons were wildly successful last year, bringing many new members to the club. Commencing on Thursday, 4 February (10:30 am - 12:30 pm), Anita will start with a course of six lessons ($100), followed by some weeks of supervised play, then finish off with further lessons later in the year. Please pass the word around to your friends and family. The more the merrier. No partner is required, though learning with a friend is always fun.
Now you can play even more bridge! We're introducing a new Tuesday afternoon session which will begin on February 2nd (12:30 - 3:30pm). We're hoping this will be a convenient time for you to play. Looking forward to seeing you there.
There will be NO TUESDAY NIGHT BRIDGE GAME on 29th December 2015.
