Stonehaven - the last night of the bridge season was a Fun Night and Prize Giving, held in Number 44, who provided an excellent buffet and fine wine. The most rewarding aspect of the evening was the success of newcomers to the game; four of the first six places were taken by relative novices, graduands of the Tuesday class. Old hand , Scott Annand was first and Anne Tunstall was second.
The overall champions this year were Pat Walton and Gordon Shanks, winning for the first time, beating Peggy Kemp and Scott Annand by just two points. Former champions, Sandra Powada and Veronica Davies, were third equal with other multiple ex-champions, Greta Junnier and Pat Watt.
New members are always welcome, novice or experienced. We run tuition sessions, on Tuesday evenings, restarting in October. Normal competition is on Wednesday evenings. If anyone is interested, please contact Scott Annand on 01569 730414.
