Grand Slam Bridge Club

Af­ter 25 years this Bridge Club still comes up with great fun and a re­laxed and en­joy­able evening of en­ter­tain­ing bridge games week af­ter week.

Last Wed­nes­day, was no ex­cep­tion. Some of the mem­bers who had not been able to at­tend the 25th cel­e­bra­tion din­ner in the Light­house Res­tau­rant on the Quay were en­vi­ous when they were told what a great night was had and what they had missed.

The win­ning pair this week were Linda Walsh and her reg­u­lar play­ing part­ner, Carol Wad­den. They beat Caro­line Brown and Michael Ryan who took sec­ond place. Third spot went to Billy Dunne and Ann McCarthy. Carol and Linda were well ahead of the pack but the next four pairs were within a sin­gle point of one an­other.

Six hands served up all 13 tricks – the Grand Slam, but no pair made the top bid; all six hands bid and made a small slam of twelve tricks plus one. So the Grand Slam prize pot re­mains un­claimed so far this year.

Our three reg­u­lar mem­bers from the Do­mini­can com­mu­nity were ab­sent, cel­e­brat­ing with del­e­gates at­tend­ing one of their In­ter­na­tional con­fer­ences held in the Ecol­ogy Cen­tre.
