Deniliquin duo victorious at interclub bridge pairs
Deniliquin Bridge Club hosted the Interclub Pairs Event on Sunday.
Players from the Shepparton and Echuca Bridge Clubs travelled to Deni for the event.
Chris Turner from Echuca was the Director for the Tournament Event with a field of 38 players playing a 91⁄ table Mitchell movement in the morning and two fivetable Howell movements in the afternoon.
It was a hard fought competition but when all the scores were tallied the overall winners for the event were the Deniliquin team Lou Taylor and Lou Graham with 231.62 points, closely followed by Ron and Neil Luke from Echuca with 220.38 points.
Vice president of the Deniliquin Bridge Club Dinny Downie was thrilled with the huge support from all the members of the club who provided a most lavish luncheon for the Shepparton and Echuca visitors.
During the year the local bridge players have participated in several Australiawide bridge events pitting their wits against more than 4,000 other bridge players.
They also participated in the annual Neura Bridge Challenge to raise funds for Alzheimers research.
