We are excited to be bringing our Ethics and Etiquette policy to the club. We hope that it will help all of you, our members, no matter how long you've been playing, to understand what is expected of you when you're at the bridge table. It also outlines what you can do if you feel that someone is not meeting that expectation.

Congratulation to Mairi Fitzsimons on becoming a Grand Master at the North Island Teams. After needing less than one A point since the end of November it must be wonderful to finally get it.
