Bridge back in the swing of it

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

BRIDGE: The Air­lie Beach Bridge Club had a great game on Tues­day night with a two ta­ble How­ell. It was good to see David and Mur­ray Smith and Lyn Cham­bers join­ing for the first time.

A short 18 board ses­sion yielded only two hands bid to game and made (both in spades).

The ma­jor­ity were part scores with 3 “flat” hands.

Pairs 1 and 2 may be able to add a one to their score for the passed-in hand.

It was Dale Hell and Eric Bot­tle who won with 23 pts, Mur­ray and David Smith with 18, Narelle and Neil with 17 and Linda and Lyn with 11.

Lyn is just back to bridge af­ter a few years’ break and will take no time to re­fresh.

It was won­der­ful to wel­come our Bowen visi­tors to the Fri­day morn­ing game, mak­ing up a three ta­ble How­ell and fol­low­ing the game with lunch at the sail­ing club.

Visi­tors Jan­ice Wright and Mar­lene Ni­col won with 57%, fol­lowed by Gil­lian Blackie and Gwen Sheer with 55% and then visi­tors Val Cum­mins and Sue Mac­Don­ald with 52% and Dale Hell and Eric Bot­tle, David and Mary Orr and Linda Pri­day and Trevor Mer­rin.

Lessons are start­ing soon. There must be at least four or more to start, with the club al­ready hav­ing three ready to go. For those in­ter­ested in learn­ing bridge call 0416 273 598 to book your free spot.
