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’ and migrate across to Thursdays, and we are constantly receiving enquiries from local people, so bridge is alive and well in Benoni.
Over now to today’s action, which was a Mitchell movement, with N/S and E/W winners. The N/S winners were Lisa and Mary, with Deirdre and Pat second. The E/W section went to a visitor, Sid Ismail, partnered by Cathy, followed by Vaun and Diana.
My thanks go to Heather for a lovely afternoon of bridge. It’s always a personal pleasure for me to partner members that I’ve never played with before, so thanks again.
It’s supper time now in the Hayward household and Troy is snoring loudly next to me, on his bed, oblivious to everything on the TV, dreaming no doubt about the postman he chased from our gate today. What a tough life for a dog!
Goodnight all, it’s over now for the week and we look forward to Tuesday next.
