Sweepstakes Pairs (Wednesday 16th July)
Posted by Marcia Scudder on Thursday, 17 July 2014 at 11:43
This event was supposed to be the RACEDAY Sweepstakes Pairs, but at the last minute, the race meeting scheduled for Canterbury Park (out the window of the venue) was transferred to another race track.
We made the best of the situation though. We had a beautiful race track, one trusty steed (see photos below), a Clerk of the Course (aka the Tournament Organiser) and televisions broadcasting the races. We also bought TAB tickets for all players, so races 3 and 6 gave players the opportunity to win some money.
Bridge consisted of 27 boards, played barometer style, so that players could chat about the hands while they had lunch or watched a race.
Book prizes (courtesy Paul Lavings Bridge Books and Supplies), and wine (courtesy getwinesdirect) and cash were awarded.
The overall winners were Inez Glanger and Ken Glasson
Second were Helen Hellsten and Paul Lavings
Third were Patricia Lacey and Carmel Bourke
Prizes were also awarded to players with fewer than 300 Masterpoints
Warren Robinson and Martin Clear Jeanette Weaver and Leslie Treasure Max Gilbert and Kathy Gilbert
and to players with fewer than 100 Masterpoints
Audrey Belt and Margaret Hagar Mick Fawcett and Lyn Tracey Helen Barnes and Cheryl Henke
and finally to those with fewer than 50 Masterpoints
Alexandra Bradley and Tanya Renaud Paul Barnett and Ellen Lui
