Airlie Beach Bridge results
BRIDGE: Last Friday the Airlie Beach Bridge Club had a lovely roll-up of bridge players who were eager to try out our new bridge mates.
These are small control machines that each table has to bid and score on, which makes scoring a much easier process for our games director Eric Bottle.
The winners of the night were Christine Johnston and Linda Priday with 68 per cent, followed by Dale Hell and Eric Bottle with 63 and then Gillian Blackie and Dewi Hughes with 57.
There was one grand slam bid by two tables making the slam with 13 tricks and the other only making the slam with 12 tricks, but at least they bid to slam.
The other three tables only bid to game and made 13 tricks but not the points.
On Friday, Bowen players were welcomed. They won on the day with Sue MacDonald and Marlene Nichol making 62.50 per cent, followed by Ellie Sheffield and Betty Andserson with 58.33 and then Dewi Hughes and Trevor Mirren in third with 47.82.
