Monday at 6.30am I leave home to start another of my Bridge-It Jane Flying Seminar Tours.  Arranged before I was elected to the Board, I am off to the Canterbury Region to address their Regional Conference and visit some of their smaller clubs to listen to how they are going and offer any help I can.  New Regional Bridge Mate Richard Williams comes out to two of the clubs with me and is at the Regional Conference.

National Open Restricted Pairs

Cambridge has been well represented in this weekend's National Open Restricted Pairs which was held at the Distinction Hotel in Te Rapa. Jane Stearns  & Di Emms finished 7th with solid results in all four sessions while Kate McFadyen & Gwyn Lobb came 18th followed by Clare Coles & Kevin Whyte in 22nd place out of a field of 62 pairs.

New RBM from Cambridge

Our very own Eunice Eccles has been appointed one of seven Regional Bridge Mates (RBMs) in the country. (RBMs are distinct from the Bridgemate tabletop devices we use at the club.) They are a newly implemented concept of Jane Stearns who was elected to the NZ Board on the back of the work she has been doing these last five years rejuvenating memberships of clubs in decline.


2017 Inaugural TWITs a great success

On Friday 22 Sep we enjoyed our final round of The Waikato Interclub Teams more fondly known as TWITs.

Thank you to all those (85) who completed an evaluation form. The feedback was mostly positive and so we will be running the event again next year using some of your ideas if we can.  Unfortunately we will be limited to hosting TWITs on a Friday night still though because there is no other week night where local clubs all don't play. This is why the equivalent event is run on a Friday night in Auckland and Wellington too.
