Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmailI am happy to report that the Bridge Section in the NYC is in a very healthy state. It is great to see new members joining our regular Thursday evenings. There are three bridge classes running at the moment in the Club, Monday afternoons we have our advanced group 12/14 members, we are learning new tricks and having great fun. Monday evening we have our beginners group of 7/8. On Thursday evening we have the Refreshers group 16/18. These started as beginners in September 2008, and I am delighted to report that they are back in great numbers for another year and playing extremely well. The Bill & Eva Nolan Memorial Trophy was competed for on Thursday, December 3, this is a pairs competition and was won by Jackie Flynn and Ida Kiernan, first runners up Cathy Dooley and Ronnie Dunn, second runners up Ella and Gerry Kennedy.
