Office Renovation.

Next week work will commence on stripping out the current office furniture, painting the office and putting in a new fit-out. Hopefully all works will be completed by Friday and that the disruption is minimal. A temporary office will be set up in the main room during this time. We hope you understand that some inconvenience is unavoidable and request your patience.


David will be coming to our club on Thursday June 15 and June 22. The main themes of the talks will be:

a) June 15 - opening leads against no trumps and against suit contracts
b) June 22 - opener's re-bids

David's lessons are very informative and very amusing. They are certainly worthwhile attending. As usual the cost is five dollars per session


The inter club teams event was run yesterday, Tuesday. In first p[lace was the GRAYDEN team. (Anne Grayden, Dorothy Berzins, Gwen White and Bob Morris) In what was a very good performance the Campbell team came second.
