On Satur­day, Aug. 25 and Sun­day, Aug. 26, The Goderich Bridge Club spon­sored its Sec­ond An­nual Du­pli­cate Bridge Card Tour­na­ment at the Colum­bus Hall in Goderich.

Ap­prox­i­mately 200 bridge play­ers vied for the Pairs Cham­pi­onship on Satur­day and the Team Cham­pi­onship on Sun­day. At­ten­dees came from as far as Toronto, Peter­bor­ough, Port El­gin, Kitch­ener, Lon­don, Wind­sor and even Michi­gan (USA) to name a few places.

The event boosted Goderich tourism and helped the lo­cal res­tau­rant and ho­tel in­dus­tries. The play­ers en­joyed the Goderich hos­pi­tal­ity and looked for­ward to a re­turn visit next year.

The Tour­na­ment Chair Maria Deaves of Lon­don, said that Goderich is the home of ex­cel­lent bridge play­ers and that this com­pe­ti­tion at­tracted some world-class com­peti­tors.
