Trumps proved victorious on Sunday 29 September in a closely fought battle for the Metro North Interclub Pairs Challenge, ahead of Peninsula Bridge Club with North Shore, Balgowlah-Dee Why and Manly Leagues filling out the remaining positions.
The event saw 72 pairs represent these five major clubs, the largest field ever for this event with its 36 tables somewhat higher than the three tables in the first time this event was run in 2008. Peninsula and the event organisers, led by convenor Cath Whiddon, were applauded for hosting a great event.
For the first time we played a barometer movement thanks to the work of director, Ronnie Ng, well suited to the four 9 table fields used. These were broadly determined by average masterpoints of the pairs entered with some minor adjustments in the middle two fields to ensure that at least two pairs from each club were in each field.
