Congratulations to Angela McDonnell & Peter Watts who won the Novice Tournament held recently at the Wellington Bridge Club.
Angela & Peter, also won this Tournament last year just six months after they commenced Bridge lessons.
We are delighted to see the extent to which our website is being accessed each month.
Here are some statistics for the month of September, which provide some interesting information.
There were 1,117 visits to the Club's website by just over 300 'unique' visitors.
Whilst the majority of the visits were from New Zealand web addresses, there were 21 visits from Brazil, as well as visits from Australia, United Kingdom & Indonesia.
In the few months since the website was started we have also had visits from Russia; USA; United Arab Emirates; Spain; Mexico; Italy; Czech Republic; Hong Kong; Tunisia; Vietnam; Albania; Bosnia and Herzegovina; Dominican Republic; Ecuador; Estonia; India; Iran; Norway; Malaysia; Portugal; Trinidad and Tobago.
Another interesting stat is that whilst the majority of visits, from both within NZ and also abroad, have been by people using computers almost all of our USA visitors were using mobile phones or tablets.
It would be interesting to know why we have had so many visitors from a such diverse range of countries and how they found us.
Given the size of the Club's membership and a name that would be known to few people outside New Zealand, the visitor numbers are most encouraging, especailly in this formative stage of the website.
New Members' Ladder
Charles Ronaldson was the winner of the New Members prize in the recently completed Ladder series.
This series, which was kindly sponsored by Unichem Pharmacy, Miramar,attracted over 60 Bridge players on each of the four nights.
Charles finished 2nd overall which is an excellent result for a new Member competing against so many more experienced players.
Second prize in the New Members' section went to Joanne Gapes who was third overall.
As a testament to skill of the new Members, (and of course to Lorraine's teaching) new Members filled four of the top five Ladder positions.
The winner of the series was Tim Blackmore who joined in 2013.
All of our evening sessions commence at 7:30pm (players to be seated by 7:20pm):
Players to be seated 10 minutes prior to commencement:

A game for all ages
As proof that Bridge is for people of all ages and across different continents and languages, two of our new Members are Intermediate and Secondary school pupils.
Our Members also come from a diverse range of ethnicities and cultures.
We have welcomed visitors to our Club, including Ushi a visitor from Germany, who played with us for a number of weeks whilst she visited her family in Wellington.
Whether you are a present or past Bridge player you would get a friendly welcome if you choose to join us.
If you are new to Bridge or think you would need to take lessons before returning to play, then please consider our lessons which begin in March and are led by our excellent tutor, (and President), Lorraine. See our Lessons page for more information.
