Year's first red-point event attracts 28 pairs

Brisbane Water Bridge Club's first red-point event for the year, the New Year's Cup, attracted 28 pairs.

The field was divided into open and "super novice", less than 25 master points.

The open competition was contested by 20 pairs.

North-south winners were Lorraine Lindsay and Richard Carter, with a comfortable five per cent win.

It was a similar situation for east-west winners, Sally Clarke and Jan Clarke with four per cent margin.

In super novice, eight novice duos entered, what for some, would be their first red-point competition.

The event was run as a Howell, to produce a single winning pair in Carolyn Nichols and Wendy Byrne.

A super novice division, for players with less than 50MP, is planned for future red point events.
