Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

BRIDGE: With sev­eral Air­lie Beach Bridge Club mem­bers away last Thurs­day the club swapped part­ners and had lots of fun while prac­tis­ing some new moves.

On Mon­day it was time to get se­ri­ous with full tables with Linda Pri­day and Dewi Hughes the win­ner with a score of 29.

They were fol­lowed by Dale Hell and Eric Bot­tle with 25 and then Neil Cawthorne and Trevor Mir­ren with 23 and Dot Aspinal and Gil­lian Blackie with 19.

Dale and Eric had no luck in Yep­poon but still en­joyed the week­end catch­ing up with fel­low bridge play­ers from Townsville, Mackay and Bowen.

Some of the high­lights of Mon­day’s game were when on board 2 east bid 3NT and made 8 and went down but when west bid 3NT same hand they made with 9 tricks.

On board 9 E bid 4H and made 12 while E on the other side bid 5D and only made 8.

On board 16 both teams un­der­bid and made game. On board 21 E bid 4H and made 8 go­ing down and south bid 4S and made 10.

Pres­i­dent Dale Hell is off to Bris­bane to meet with all of the bridge pres­i­dents of Queens­land for a con­fer­ence to dis­cuss QBF and the ABF ob­jec­tives for the com­ing year and to put for­ward their own sug­ges­tions to make the game bet­ter.

There will be bridge on Thurs­day at 6.30pm and the fol­low­ing Mon­day at 12.30pm and all are wel­come.
