Team results May 2018

It was coldddd..last night, with a wind straight from the Antarctic blowing up the alley leading to our storeroom. Just to fetch the paraphernalia of our club was a task of note!

I was proud of our club today, looking around and seeing 12 full tables. We have come from 6 to 8 tables a year ago to this! Amazing! And it looks like growing even more. There are some pairs from Lisa’s Monday afternoon class that are almost ready to ‘ break into the big time’ […]

Yes indeed. What happened to some of us? The cards were somewhat up and down, depending on what one received. But for some of us, the writer included, the cards were a bit unkind. You know what I mean, don’t you? ( “He’s just rambling on, working up to where he makes some kind of […]
