Bude Bridge Club monthly report (April)
ONE of Bude Bridge Club’s most regular players, Linda Ashworth, partnered honorary member Elaine Relton in the Cornwall County Ryley King Ladies’ Pairs and came top with an impressive 63.94%, over 10% clear of the runners-up.
Congratulations were expressed to both by the club on such an outstanding performance.
Chris Nichols had a very successful month coming top on four different occasions with three different bridge partners during April, twice with
Steve Clifton, and on one occasion with both Jane Koldeway and Linda Ashworth. Steve also won with David Clarke.
Other winning pairs were Mary Hicks and James Sim, Bob and Ann Bennett and Maureen Fallows and Sylvia Rogers.
Alan Merchant-White and Ian Curtis won the Christine Carey Cup competition, held on a Wednesday afternoon.
Other winners were Gill Lowe and Hilary Dorren, Glenys Mead and Sue Kershaw and Penny and Terry Abbott.
Penny and Terry have been playing bridge for less than a year so well done to them on their first win.
