We hope to see everyone returning to the bridge table and enjoying playing and catching up.

We would like to encourage more people to participate in the running of the club by learning to direct.
There is unlimited help from the senior players while you are learning and it also helps with your own bridge so please put your hand up to help the club and further your skills. ( Just like everything in life it is not as scary as you think after the first couple of times ) There are flow charts available for the common rulings that are relatively easy to learn so please give it a go.

The WaiBays region is also hosting two director seminars this year (Rotorua 21st March and Matamata on the 27th June) aimed at those who want to do more club directing as well as those who may wish to go for the director qualifications.

Learner Lessons are just over a month away ( start on the 3rd March ) and we still need more pupils so please try and spread the word and pass any names on to me.

We have a new member at the club called Moya Young and she would like to play on Thursday nights ( her name is in the book ) so please give her a ring and give her a game if you can.
