The final of the Country Teams for outer metropolitan players was held on Sunday 28th June. Newcastle Bridge Club had run qualifying events for this State wide competition and from those qualifying rounds had three teams in the final.
With a 5 wins and 1 draw record from their 6 matches, the Wilks Team [Ken Wilks, Michael Simes, Rosalie Broughton and Margaret Geddes] finished 1st. Congratulations.
The Seldon Team [Chris Dibley, Michael Seldon, Pam Robinson and Christo Moskovsky] finished 3rd with 4 wins and 2 losses. The Cowen Team [Grant Cowen, Paul McGrath, Wayne Smith and Julie Gleeson] also with a 4 wins and 2 losses record came 4th.
Wayne Smith and Julie Gleeson take on the mantle of the 2015 Club Champions after a hard fought day of bridge on Sunday 21 June.
Fourteen pairs contested the Newcastle Club Pairs Final with each pair playing 26 boards in the morning, two boards against all other pairs, and that pattern was repeated in the afternoon.
Julie Gleeson and Wayne Smith won the morning session, with a 2% margin over Ken Wilks and Michael Simes. Several pairs who had a disappointing morning session came to life in the afternoon, but none could catch the leaders. So Julie and Wayne are our Club Pairs Champions, with Ken and Michael second, and Tony Wagstaff and Bernie Atkins a close third.
Championship Director, Peter Peterson commented on the high standard of play, congratulating all who qualified for the finals of this very competitive competition.
