Bil Blogs

The committee is delighted to introduce Bil Blogs, our local commentator, who will provide discussion on club tidbits & interesting hands.
Bil's forum can be found on the right of this page under Forums (surprisingly) & by clicking on the relevant date.
Bil describes himself as "a member who likes to reserve his doubles for careless bidders". He warns that players should "beware".

Vale Merche Magee

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.

A Tribute to John Wagner from Peter

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.  

Vale John Wagner

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.

Peter Gill - our extraordinary director

As most of you would know, Peter was recently competing overseas.
The event, held in Denver, was the Reisinger BAM (board a match) teams & was the major event of the Fall North American Bridge Championships.
48 teams from around the world competed in this event & we are proud to announce that Peter's team finished in 5th position.
Well done, Peter.
