Bridge Results 27 Jul 2017

I hope you all enjoyed the ambience of the tennis club this afternoon. It was cosy, wasn’t it? The toilets needed a little work and there was only one working electrical plug, but nevertheless, a real vote of thanks to the management of our club for assisting with the tables, chairs and the tea urn […]

Aren’t the new glass stacked doors beautiful in the Ladies’ Bar? What a nice venue for Tuesday nights in winter! And Helen and Pauline did it two weeks running. With 59% to Di and Barbara’s 57,6%, it was reasonably close, with Diana and Anne third and yours truly and Bram next with exactly 50%. I […]

10 Tables ! That’s right. Well, actually nine and a half, but who’s counting. What a great turnout. I was concerned for a while, thinking we wouldn’t have enough Bridgemates! What a pleasure that would be. I look forward to us having to buy some more and being forced to have two sections. It’s coming. […]

I know you’re probably tired of hearing it, but I have to say that the night was cold, but the room was warm, the fire blazing away and some very good and challenging hands were played by some very good players. There were 4 slam hands to be bid, not five, and some distributional beauties […]

BNSC NEWSLETTER Morning to all…. As I sit hear writing my quick note about the happenings at the North…I hear the sounds of progress! To some it will mean dust everywhere accompanying a cacophony of sounds…whether it be someone hammering in nails… sledgehammers hitting onto chisels that are removing bricks in walls, shovels mixing concrete […]

Then it was Thursday, a good day for bridge lovers in Benoni. Amidst the banging and dust and construction activity outside, we quietly went about our thoughtful perusal of our randomly dealt cards and came up with some bids that defied belief and some that were profound! But, that canny pair of Helen and Barbara […]

For those of you that weren’t there, we had five and a half tables, with a normal competitive vibe running through proceedings and some TD decisions having to be made. At the end of the evening, Diana and Ann came out top of the pile, with Ros and Cathy second and Bill and Jan third. […]

The Scimitar 11 Jul 2017

BNSC NEWSLETTER Morning everybody It appears that there was a little “glitch” in the system last week and my summary, message, note or whatever we would like to call it, was not attached to the Scimitar. My apologies, we still do not know how it happened, but will endeavour to ensure that this does not […]

Welcome once again to the new members gracing our presence. We are really happy to have you join us in this never-ending passion we embrace and take part in every week. We had 8 tables today, with some of the most interesting and difficult to bid hands we’ve ever seen. Just look at hand number […]

So what can I say? We started off by playing the wrong board at the first table. After this somewhat shaky start, Bram and I wobbled along and managed to recover. Sorry Bram, I was sitting North, so it was my responsibility to check the board. Bill, you’re forgiven! A great evening, however, for Heather […]
