Message from the Vice President
Over the past two plus years Bridge Clubs have provided opportunities to keep club members entertained through online bridge. However, many members are not equipped to take part in online sessions.
I want to congratulate Parramatta Bridge Club president Sandy Boyd and the committee who have worked so hard to ensure we provide the options of online and face to face (F2F) bridge.
As F2F has been back in operation, it has been disappointing to see the same few faces supporting our Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday F2F sessions. Thank you to those members who have participated regularly.
I know the weather has been terrible and the dreaded COVID rampant, but I know those of us who have braved these conditions have enjoyed meeting up and enjoyed the benefits of social interaction.
So….as we are hopefully nearing the end of these miserable weather weeks, consider putting on your going out clothes and join us :
- Wednesday 7:15 PM at Burnside
- Thursday 10:30 AM at Burnside
- Saturday 10:30 AM at Burnside
Tea, coffee and biscuits are provided. Masks are optional and sanitiser is provided at every table. The coffee shop is open and there are no parking fees.
Come along and enjoy the benefits of F2F bridge!
Yours in anticipation,
Annette (Anne) Ashmore
