Amidst the banging of hammers, the creaking sounds of unoiled wheelbarrow wheels and the nip in the air through torn canvas sheets, the unperturbed members of Benoni Northern Bridge Club went about their business in a measured fashion and competed, without missing a beat. Hardy people, these bridge players, even when it got colder and […]

The smoky room, where serious bridge was played That’s correct, all of you who missed the action last night! The fire was burning, as usual, but just before we started playing, there was a sound of something cracking, accompanied by glass shards falling on the floor and what do you know, the front glass pane […]

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. […]

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. […]

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 […]
