The winners of the 2020 Spring Pairs event were Marcia Mazametz and Neville Stafford. It was a close game at the beginning of the final round with at least four pairs in contention but with the last card played and the scores tallied, Jean Dance and Judy Toey came in second place. Congratulations to all who played. Many thanks go to the members who provided the delicious afternoon tea.
Many thanks to the seven pairs from Fremantle Bridge Club who travelled to Rockingham Bridge Club on Sunday November 22 to compete in an annual inter-club event - we didn't bring the trophy home (29 to 27) but we gave them a good run. Chris Wells and Janet Signer came in 2nd with Kaye Egan and Rosalie Raine gaining 4th place. Also placing in the top seven were Jean Dance and Jenny Green, Judy Toey and Sue Moonen and Carmel O'Neill with Odelle Davidson. Two other FBC pairs managed to keep three Rockingham pairs from reaching the gloried heights.
Congratulations to Alexis Keynes and Jenny Langridge on winning the 2020 Club Championships. Over two weekends an interesting competition saw a variety of members stake a claim on the comp and Director Chris Wells had a challenge with the final figures. Second place went to Marion Jefferson and Tom Wheatley with Laurel Lander and Se-Moi Loh coming a close third. A sumptuous afternoon tea was provided and a dozen-odd members enjoyed a few drinks after the event to wind up another great day of Bridge.
