BRIDGE

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - - Puzzles - John Comyn

SORRY to have missed Bray Con­gress, but it was once again a huge suc­cess ac­cord­ing to ev­ery­one I spoke to. Italy got in the way.

And, again, well done Anne Daly for her su­perb or­gan­i­sa­tion and to the Bray mem­bers who won pretty much ev­ery­thing up for grabs.

Next on the agenda for bridge play­ers is the very pop­u­lar Drogheda Con­gress at the West­court Ho­tel which takes place over the week­end of Oc­to­ber 6-8.

The usual pro­gramme sched­ule will ap­ply, start­ing with mixed pairs at 7.45pm on the first evening. On the fol­low­ing days, both Con­gress pairs and the teams will start at 12 noon.

And don’t for­get there are numer­ous Grand Prix prizes for all grades. If you wish to throw your hat into the ring, en­tries should be sent to Peter Byrne at pe­ter­byrne1en­triesw@hot­mail.com.

Be­fore that, how­ever, we have Duais an Uachtarain in Done­gal, fol­lowed by the Lady Milne Tri­als, which will take place over just one week­end from Septem­ber 29 to Oc­to­ber 1. Poor bid­ding with 7H on, but miss­ing the HK hardly likely to be in it. I think N should open 2C. That is a real pow­er­house.
