Newcastle Members at the 2014 State Open Pairs

Have you ever wondered how members who consent to represent the Club at State events perform?  They voluntarily give up their time for you to get any red points gained from participating in the qualifying events.

At this year’s State Open Finals the Club had three pairs compete.  Ken Berry and Normand MacLaurin finished 1st East/West in the qualifying rounds.   They then competed in the State Open Pairs Final and came 6th of 14 finalists.  Larry Bryant and Roy Low finished 2nd North/South in the qualifying rounds and then elected to play in the Country Pairs Final where they took out that title.  Rosalie Broughton and Ken Wilks also competed in the Country Pairs Final and came 8th of 14 finalists.

Thank you guys.
