Susan Spinks & Anthony Curtin have qualified first in the recent Tuesday night State Open Pairs qualifying event. Congratulations to Susan & Anthony.
Runners up were:
2nd - Teresa Wilson & Ian Jamieson
3rd - Debbie Rose & Eva Veress.
Thank you to all the competitors who made the event an enjoyable one. Thank you, also, to our director, Charles Klassen.

Eddie the Eagle Eyed

We have a new forum topic posted on the right.
Eddie notes that players are still not providing opponents with the opportunity to look at their system card. We would reiterate that it really is a useful exercise to sit down with you regular partner(s) & write one out. Then, of course, you need to remember to bring it to each game!
Eddie also provides another hand which is worth a look.


In case you haven't heard, Elizabeth Morgan died last week after a short illness. Her memorial service was last Friday. She was certainly a lovely woman. We'll miss her.

Tuesday Supervised

The Tuesday supervised session is back!
If you're looking for an opportunity to play in a non competitive environment & one in which help is available with those tricky situations which arise all too frequently in this frustrating game of ours, please come. The session will run from 4.30-6.30 in the big room & will be supervised by Di Connors, ably assisted by Keith Van Klink.

Friday Teams Results

Congratulations (albeit somewhat belatedly) to the winning team of Parveen & Jamal Rayani, Faye Morris & David Mahadavan.

Runners up were:
2nd - Margaret Driscoll, Philip Moroney, Mike Bush & Kathie De Palo
3rd - Betty Priestley, Peter Shea, Tim Cregan & Richard Sheldrake

Thank you to all participants, particularly those who made the event viable by making themselves available on a day on which they would not normally play.

Directors' Rulings - Hesitations

Charles Klassen has written a Forum article about the laws concerning Hesitation (or Break In Tempo) in the bidding. More importantly, he addresses the player's right to appeal. The Club has an Appeals Committee & where players feel that a decision made against them is incorrect, the opportunity exists to have the decision considered by that Committee.

Tuesday 12.30 Sessions Cancelled

The Committee is sorry to advise that the Tuesday 12.30pm session with Brian Soutter has been cancelled due to poor attendance.
We apologise to those who have been enjoying that session, but can advise that a supervised session with Brian will be commencing early in the second half of year on Thursday afternoons.

Doleful Dave

Here's an interesting on for you from last Tuesday.
