Deniliquin Pastoral Times - - SPORT -

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.
