Please enter via the NSWBA website . Full details may be found on the brochure by clicking Congress Brochure or contact the convenor, Eileen Sellers, on 4955 6865.

Should you sacrifice in 7C over 6S by the opposition? This dilemma arose in the teams at the Central Coast Congress.

Congratulations to Judy Atkins and Tony Wagstaff who were the winners of the NBC Mixed Pairs run over three weeks in March. Judy and Tony will represent the Club at the state championships on May 23 and 24 in Sydney. Second were Christine Chandler and Ken Berry with Helen Johnson and Peter Peterson coming in third.
The NBC was well represented at the Central Coast Bridge Club Super Congress held at Long Jetty on Saturday and Sunday, 21 and 22 March, and while not taking out any of the major prizes this year, our members performed well across the all divisions.
In the Swiss Pairs the most notable finish came from NBC member Michael Simes and his partner Michael Johnson, from the Tamworth Bridge Club, who finished in seventh place. A special mention also to Bruce Webster and Peter Wheatley who finished equal twenty second. As Bruce stated, “we dug in, kept it steady, and refused to be put off our game”.
NBC members also did well as part of combined multi-club teams – the SMITH team (that included Wayne Smith) came fifth; the MOTTRAM team (that included Christine Williams) came sixth; the SIMES team (Michael Simes-Michael Johnson-Ken Wilks-Rosalie Broughton) came twelfth, and the WALKER team (Ian Walker-Margaret Geddes-Christine Chandler-Eileen Humphrey) came sixteenth.
There was some added satisfaction in the pairs ranking of the teams event with Ian Walker and Margaret Geddes ninth and Pam Robinson and Christo Moskovsky fifteenth out of 104 pairs.
