SUMMER LEAGUE 2017

Another enjoyable summer of bridge. In a background of scandal, bad behaviour and downright cheating, an example on how the game should be played — with skill, consideration, and of course home baking. One team even called in their reserve to play for the opponents rather than make them forfeit. I have received several compliments on their behalf. Congratulations! We hope the summer has honed your bridge ready for the new season.

As for the results — Fife Aces won very closely followed by Grange in second and Hermitage Hibs in third. The winners are pictured from left to right — Gertrud Mallon, Nicola Dean, Sue Smith and Fiona McElhinney. Willie Davidson and Dave Dunn also played for the team but were not at the AGM.
