Rodney Harris

Rodney HarrisRodney HarrisMorrinsville Contract Bridge Club members are deeply saddened by the sudden death of a long standing member Rodney Harris.

Rodney was a member for nearly 40 years and many club trophies bear his name-including Club Championship, Individual Championships and Morrinsville Tournament several times.
Rodney was also an associate member of Hamilton Contract Bridge, playing regularly on Wednesday nights.

He was a very competitive and passionate Bridge player, played annually at NZ Bridge Congress and competed in tournaments throughout the Waikato. His last success was in March this year when he and his partner Lucy Armstrong successfully defended their title from the previous year when winning the Waihi All Grades Tournament.

Over the years Rodney has given back to his home club. He served three times as Club
President over the years and was a current committee member and a Director of club night play. Numerous Morrinsville members have benefitted from his lessons, encouragement and his sharing of a deep Bridge knowledge.

Rodney was an unassuming, friendly, respectful member and will be greatly missed by his many Bridge friends.
