Seven Bridges then to the Spring Nationals Bridge

After the Seven Bridges Walk, the Spring Nationals became the Eighth Bridge
I was fortunate not to be here on Tuesday for the set-up of the tables in the Galaxies rooms but, never fear, my UP24 bands recorded over 11 kilometres were traversed yesterday, Wednesday, being the first day of the Open & Restricted Teams.
For your interest, several of your fellow bridge players playing here today, namely Sally Clarke, Sharon Mayo & Frank Budai completed the 27 Kms â€œSeven Bridges Walkâ€ last Sunday. I started but could only managed 17 Kms (from Milsons Points to Hunter Hill). This was the sign that we followed, for several hours:-
In total we had 16 bridge players in our team (Walk & Play Bridge) and most finished the gruelling walk, raising funds for Cancer Council NSW. BBO became our bridge table and several hands were played. Players also used the â€œfacilitiesâ€ at Hunters Hill and Kirribilli Hotels. Interested in joining next year, let me know as I need to complete that selection I missed this year.
