Hunter Country Teams Regional Final

The Hunter Country Teams Regional Final was held at the club on Sunday 17th May with 23 participating teams from the region and 1 House team.  Thanks to the house team of Alison Lea, Effie Roach, Wayne Morgan and Rod Bell who gave up their Sunday to play so the triangle was avoided.

The Zonal Final will be held on Sunday 28th June at the Brisbane Water Bridge Club, Peninsula Community Centre, Cnr Ocean Beach & McMaster Roads, Woy Woy with play to commence at  9.30 am. The five teams that qualified to play are:

Maitland 1 McGrath Newcastle 2 Newcastle 1 Port Stephens 1
Christine Chandler Paul McGrath Michael Simes Chris Dibley Dorothy Wood
Roger Yandle Robyn Fletcher Ken Wilks Mike Seldon Angela Tilling
Emile Battista Julie Gleeson Margaret Geddes Ken Berry Lynette Fitzhenry
Barbara Hunter Wayne Smith Andrew Toyne Larry Bryant Madeleine Mann

The smooth running and success of the day was due to the club members who assisted behind the scenes.  A big thank you to those who set up the club house, organised the supply of refreshments,  dealt boards and printed hand records.  Special thanks to the ladies who prepared and served the  refreshments at the conclusion of play.
