Christmas and other celebrations

By Anna Kalma - Posted on 29 November 2019

At Matamata's AGM and prizegiving there was a few special people recognised for their outstanding service and performance to bridge.

Kathy received official recognition of her achievement by reaching Gold Grand Master status a couple of months ago when awarded her gold plaque that will likely hang proudly next to Kens. There are just 40 Gold Grand Masters in New Zealand and just 7 of these are women. Well done Kathy!

And joining an even more exclusive group was Lesley Quilty who became Matamata's life member joining Ann Ring and Sonia Crawford. Lesley has been active in the club and Waikato Bays in a number of roles over the many many years she has played bridge. Great to see her service recognised.
