Two relatively new players were the Handicap Winners on Monday 27th January, Elizabeth Buckpitt and Carol Lance. Congratulations to them both on their performance.
Another notable result this fortnight was that of Sue Donohue and Roy Song who were the N/S winners on Friday 31st January with a remarkable score of over 69%. Congratulations to them both.
In duplicate bridge all couples sitting N/S play against one another and all couples sitting E/W compete against each other, playing the same hands of cards successively against different couples. The couple that plays the hand the best gets the maximum points (i.e. potentially 100% for that hand). Generally it is considered excellent to score above 60% overall and the majority of players score between 40% and 60%. Hence a score of 69% is noteworthy.
On Sunday 2nd February we held a social lunch and bridge session. Members prepared a delicious lunch for everyone and we played bridge as usual, before and after lunch. On this day the N/S winners were Liz Caro and Jeanette Whalan and the E/W winners were Adrian Ryan and John Worgan.
