NAMBUCCA BRIDGE CONGRESS

THE Congress was attended by 100 bridge players from around NSW and Qld and has proved to be another tourism stimulus for the area. Club president Richard Levy congratulated Isla Campbell Trophy winners Daphne Priestley and Jeff Wainwright and acknowledged how terrific it was that Daphne, who was now in her 80s, has the talent, stamina and drive to compete at such a high level. Bridge is mentally challenging, a great retirement hobby and provides lots of social interaction while being inexpensive. The next Introduction to Bridge course has started.
