Newcastle Bridge Club holds nine sessions of duplicate bridge each week – both daytime and evenings – and all players are welcome. On Tuesdays and Fridays a standby player will be in attendance so anyone without a partner can simply walk in and get a game. The venue is close to Broadmeadow railway station and is also serviced by bus routes. There is disability access and off street parking is available. Tea, coffee and biscuits are included in the table fees which are $6 for members and $7 for non-members. The Club will help arrange a partner if required.
The course of bridge lessons for beginners commenced on Tuesday 26th July 2016, 7 pm – 9 pm and on Thursday 28th July 2016, 10 am – 12 noon. The lessons are such that people can switch between the day and night sessions.

Results noted from last week-end’s Muswellbrook Congress that featured good performances from Club members were:
- The team of Janet Hill, Bernie Adcock, Pam Robinson and Christo Moskovsky finished third overall winning four of their six matches; and
- The pairing of Colleen Wilson and Josephine Most took out the consolation final of the pairs event.
Members have shown by their attendance that the Friday Graded Pairs event has been a very popular event. To mark that success Committee has agreed the last round should be marked by the provision of food and drinks at the end of the session. That decision is twofold in as much as whilst you are accepting the hospitality Ken Wilks will have time to calculate the overall winners for 2016, not an straightforward task but one invoving spreadsheet entry of results for the various participating pair combinations.
Now for the important news to note. Ken would not be attending the final round should it be held on Friday 25th November as scheduled and hence this notification. Committee in agreement with your general acceptance of a change of date have set the final round for Friday 2nd December. To all those members keenly involved in the event, please make a note of that change.
