Letter to the Editor, WA Bridge Focus

Your correspondent, A. Nomaly, lived up to his or her name in your July issue in the article "Nowhere to Hide".

The article said: "The GNOT is one of the few occasions where people from Albany, Bunbury, Busselton, Kojonup, Kendenup, Bridgetown, Kalgoorlie, Esperance, Geraldton and Avon Valley have a chance to meet and compete without the city's Big Guns."

Has A. Nomaly never heard of Denmark, a thriving club with more members than some of those mentioned and which has held two successful congresses?

SuperVets - A Gold Point Event for Players over 75

The SuperVets Tournament aims to recognise and celebrate the unique contribution that veteran bridge players have made to the game.

It is a unique event in WA's bridge calendar and SuperVets 2018 marks the seventh year it has a been held. However, for the first time, the tournament this year will be open to players who have reached the age of 75.

This is a "Gold Point" event and will be held on Sunday 4 November at the club rooms of the WA Bridge Club in Swanbourne. Play starts at 10am and will conclude at around 3.30pm. The morning and afternoon sessions will have short refreshment breaks. A light lunch will be provided to competitors at around 1pm and at the conclusion of play there will be a prize giving ceremony.

The overall winning pair will be acknowledged by having their names engraved on BAWA's SuperVets Perpetual Trophy. In addition there will be special awards for the best performing pair where one member of the pair is over 85 years of age and best performing pair where one member of the pair is over 95 years of age.

All eligible players are encouraged to enter this 'fun event of serious bridge'. Entries can be made via the BAWA website. For players who need help lodging their entry - your Club Secretary or another club member will no doubt be happy to assist you with completing the entry formalities.
