Committee update June 2021

Our fabulous club is slowly returning to ‘normal’ despite the challenges that COVID continues to throw at us. Thank you for your ongoing support in following the COVID rules of the Committee and supporting our goal to keep playing face-to-face while keeping our players safe.

If you want to keep our club growing and moving forwards, you can help in the following ways: 

  1. Come and PLAY!!!  (click link for session information)
    We are open for business – no bookings required
  2. Join in the fun!!!
    Bridge & Trivia night – missing travel? Come and play Bridge, answer trivia questions and win prizes at our inaugural Bridge Cruise Trivia Night (at Burnside on Wed 7th July). Trivia teams that sign up beforehand will get a discount on the table fees ($30 per table of 4 or $10pp on the night) NOTE: This is not a Bridge Teams event – the teams are for Trivia only. Sign up at any session at Burnside or email us
  3. Promote our Club and Bridge lessons
    The Committee is now offering all members an incentive. For every person that you refer for Beginner lessons and then joins as a HOME club member, you will be given 2 FREE GAME TICKETS
    Next round of Beginner lessons start in July: Beginner Classes
  4. Help keep our Club Members improving
    Experienced players – please volunteer to play with one of our Beginners and mentor them through the “shark-infested” waters of competitive Bridge. Just one Wednesday night of your time a month at Burnside will make a BIG difference to the growth of our new players. And it is a great social night out – we all have a lot of fun, while practising our Bridge skills
  5. Directors are still needed
    If you are interested in becoming a club director please talk to us about this exciting, paid role at the club!

Sorry, forgot to post the May update……

What a great month of Bridge for all of us. We are so happy to see many people returning to our face to face sessions.

👏 Congratulations to State Mixed Pair Qualifier winners – Shijun Tian & Judy Zhu, and to Henk Sluyter and & Adele Anderson who came second. Henk also won the Pennant Hills qualifier (with a different partner). Great effort! As Judy will be attending the finals representing Pennant Hills Bridge Club, Annette Marshall and Firdous Zulfiqar have accepted the opportunity to represent the Parramatta Bridge Club on 29 May. We wish them all the best for this tournament. 

Teams of 3 – was a successful tournament for our beginners with 8 teams taking part. Thank you again to our 8 captains who managed to play with each of their team members and had to score manually for the event.
