There were some superb scores recorded in a national event by the Exmouth Bridge Club players last week.
IT has been an exciting past week at Exmouth Bridge Club, writes Carla Pickering.
On Armistice Day (November 11) the third leg of the Winter League took place.
The New Deal team of -Alan Swift, Bob Harriott, Terry Cannon and Nigel Jackson-Mack, scored a resounding victory over the Nutwell Chums and, as a result, stay top of Division One.
The Luce Cannons also did well against Mabaze Four and are now in the lead in Division Two, but, with two more matches still to be played there is still everything to play for in both Divisions.
The following day (Friday, November 12) a healthy turn out of forty members played the eCats Children in Need, Simultaneous Pairs which is organised nationwide.
There were 830 contestants country wide taking part and several players did very well.
Playing N/S , Teresa Tea and Brian Hughes, scored 65.10 per cent and were followed closely by Shelagh Hughes and Roger Bunt with 63 .05 per cent. This fine effort saw them placed 19th and 35th in the county respectively!
