Mackay wins bridge comp
Last weekend members of the Airlie Beach Bridge Club joined players from Townsville, Bowen and Mackay at the Proserpine Bridge Club’s team congress.
Mackay won the day in Proserpine but all players reportedly enjoyed their experience.
The weekend before saw six Airlie Beach players travel to Mission Beach to join the North Queensland clubs in the Tully Bridge Club’s congress, which saw Dale Hell and Eric Bottle win the Sunday morning session.
Dale Hell said a great time was had by all, which included a raffle win for some local players.
Closer to home the winners of the weekly game on Tuesday were Brian and Sheila O’Rourke with 65 per cent.
They were followed by Melbourne visitor Barbara Shepherd and Gwen Sheer (57 per cent) and Dale Hell and Eric Bottle (55 per cent).
Friday’s play saw Brian and Sheila O’Rourke victorious with an impressive 77.5 per cent. Newcomer Ruth Boast and Trevor Merrin (57 per cent) were second ahead of Neil Cawthorn and Eric Bottle (47 per cent).
The next meeting of the Airlie Beach Bridge Club will be held on Friday at 9.30am while Tuesday’s play commences at 6.30pm.
