CLARE TROPHY

Congratulations to Margaret Gidley-Baird for winning the Clare.
Runners up were June Herbert, 2nd & Peter Brooke, 3rd.
Thanks to all participants for taking part in this annual event.
Many thanks to our director, Peter. The event required a lot of work by Peter in terms of organising the seating in an equitable fashion, managing a large field on the day & scoring the event afterwards.
For the full results, please see the attachment below.

PARKING

The Committee is aware that there is a problem with parking, particularly on Mondays. This appears to be the result of commuters having discovered the upper car park. The Committee is confident that this matter will soon be rectified.
However, in the meantime, members should know that the Council has received a complaint from the preschool about bridge players using its car park. Council rangers will be monitoring the situation & fines will be issued for unauthorised parking in the preschool car park.

WHAT'S ON IN NOVEMBER

Monday, 6 November - Clare Trophy (Green points)
Tuesday, 7 November - Melbourne Cup, NO SESSIONS

Please note that the Clare Trophy is an individual event for which you do not require a partner. It's a fun day during which you will play with a number of different partners to a standardised, simple system. Players of any experience are very welcome. It's anyone's game.

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.

HUNTERS HILL BRIDGE CLUB 2017 CONGRESS

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

WOMEN'S TEAMS OF THREE

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.
