A tight finish for Bottle and Ponting
BRIDGE: Airlie Beach Bridge Club featured a strong contingent of players last Monday in a closely fought round.
In the end the team of Eric Bottle and Arthur Ponting proved too good to finish on 26.
They were followed closely behind with equal second place finishers Gillian Blackie and Trevor Merrin, 24, and Dale Hell and Dewi Huges also 24.
In fourth place were Glenda and Rob O’Connor on 22.
By all accounts it was an evenly fought competition and it was reflected in the scores.
Thursday’s bridge was down on numbers with only four players in attendance.
Neil Cawthorne won the day with his score of 3520.
In second place was Trish Rause on 3450 then third was Gillian Blackie on 2620 and Dewi Hughes rounded out the spots with 2110.
