Bridge Results 13 Dec 2016

Last night I should be excused for not sending out the hand records, because while I was sending out the results, the vultures were attacking the food! I therefore decided that I could send them out today, leaving me at least a chance of getting a scrap or two. Did I get anything? Well, let’s […]

Bridge Results 8 Dec 2016 (amended)

There were eight and a half tables today, and a good time was had by most of us who played today. There were some really funny moments, but don’t worry, Ian and I are tight lipped and won’t say a word. (hysterically funny……!). Very well done to the new partnership of Anne and Annette, who […]

Bridge Results 6 Dec 2016

Well, well! There we were, all eight of us. It was a little bit of overkill, because we had six tables prepared, six Bridgemates set out, the computer system all geared up to handle the great influx of Benoni Northerns players about to descend on us and compete mightily for the Tuesday night session of […]

Bridge Fees 2017

Hello fellow Bridgers, I am being asked about fees for next year.   So that you can budget, I have worked out a table of fees, the main increase being the SABF fee. There is no discount for paying this year, as the Bridge Club has already subsidised the Benoni Northerns fee to the tune of […]

Bridge Club Championship 3 Dec 2016

Apologies for repeating my remarks from the other day, but the room was very hot, and the bridge was even hotter! We had seven and a half tables, because we had a late withdrawal, on Friday night, which was a pity, and we really tried to fill the void which was left, but were unsuccessful. […]

Bridge Results 1 Dec 2016

The hall was hot, in fact, very hot, the same as the bridge being played. Congratulations to that very inconsistent pair, Paul and Bridie, for finally coming out of the cold and winning for a change! Very well done. And at the beginning we had a little chaos with the wrong Bridgemates at  tables 1 […]
