Peninsula Bridge Club
A good day was had by all at the Peninsula Swiss Pairs Congress. The winners were David Weston and Kim Morrison. Peninsula did very well in the Restricted section with Tom Wykoff and Len Evershed in first place and Terry and Jim Rothwell second. The best Peninsula pair were Alan Davies and Vivien Eldridge.
Thanks to Ronnie Ng for a very smoothly run congress. Also thanks to the kitchen helpers and everyone who contributed food for the tables. Everyone really appreciated the food,
Jim's son Matthew worked as a caddy so we were very pleased to have three generations of Rothwells at the club.
