BNSC NEWSLETTER Hi there to everyone A week that was high(low)lighted for me with disappointment and joy…. I was hoping that the Drakensberg Boys Choir was going to be a massively successful show for both our Members and locals was unfortunately destroyed by inclement weather. The rain came down in buckets and around 16h00, but […]

When I looked around the hall this afternoon and thought about the significance of Alan’s passing a year ago, I also thought about how fortunate we are, those of us gathered together in the pursuit of this game we play with such vigour.

Then there was bridge, and some people did rather well, especially Di and Bernie. They nearly crossed the 70% threshold, finishing at just over 69%. Great stuff indeed, with Bridie […]

Well, well, it rained, it poured, the lightning was frightening, thunder was reverberating throughout the building, but the brave few soldiered on, brows furrowed in concentration. What a night! A funny thing happened tonight, not on the way to the forum, but at our club. Strange it certainly was, and it was board 24, the […]

“Veni vidi vici”. Thus said Julius Caesar after winning battles in Asia Minor in about 47 BCE. “I came, I saw,I conquered” was what he said all those years ago, which is what happened when our visitor of note from Johannesburg, Robert Stevens, teamed up with Cathy Saville yesterday and won with nearly 70%.

Bridge Results 7 Nov 2017

Let me start with the weather last night. It was stiflingly hot, so we had to open the doors at the end of the hall and switch on all the fans, which made it tolerable, indeed rather pleasant. There were six and a half tables, which made it another good week for our club and […]
