The 2021 Bay Pairs Report

The final round of the 2021 Bay Pairs was held at Te Puke on Sunday 4th of July. First equal on the day were Murray Wood (Tauranga) with Rachelle Pelkman (Mt Maunganui) and Marion Kelly with Julie Sheridan (Tauranga). In third place are Chris and Angela Overton. Best pair not containing an open grade player Simon Eminson and Jan Gyenge (Tauranga).

The Te Puke club with, I believe, a new committee maintained their fantastic standard of hosting their section of the Bay Pairs. Your soups always hit the spot. Thank you Te Puke.
A big thank you to Norm Silcock as always setting a high standard in his directing.
At the end of play the overall prizes and trophies where presented. Overall winners and 2021 Champions are Murray Wood and Rachelle Pelkman (Tauranga, Mt Maunganui). Second were Marion Kelly and Julie Sheridan (Tauranga) with Simon Eminson and Jan Gyenge third (Tauranga).

Simon Eminson and Jan Gyenge (Tauranga) also took out the Intermediate title.

Mike Whalley (Kawerau) playing with Eric Burnie took out the Junior title.

It was great to see a lot of new faces - this is needed to keep bridge alive.
As you all know this is where I am saying goodbye to bridge, I wish you all the best for the future and please don’t let this wonderful tournament die.
