Welcome to Sunshine Coast Bridge Club.

Graded Pairs Congress: Our 2018 Graded Pairs congress attracted a full house with players from across the Coast and from Brisbane. We had 3 separate grades, and this is a popular format for players at all levels of experience. Winners of the A Grade (pictured, with club president Brian Cordiner middle) were Lyn and Jim Martin.

Many thanks to Peter and Steve as directors, Trish as caddy, kitchen staff and helpers for providing snacks and nibbles throughout the day, and convenor Ursula. [posted Sun 16-Sep-18]


Reg Busch - 90th birthday: Last Saturday the Club celebrated Reg Busch's 90th birthday with not just one cake, but two, one provided by the Club (pictured) and one baked by club member Jean Hearn.

Reg was also presented with a certificate awarding him honarary life membership of the Club, which was decided at last week's AGM. Pictured is him receiving the award from president Brian Cordiner. The award was made in recognition of Reg's contribution over many years not only to our Club but to bridge in Australia generally. [posted Sat 8-Sep-18]
