Auckland Mayor opens Newbies Bridge Club in Takapuna
On Sunday we welcomed the Mayor, and a crowd of 200, to the grand opening of Newbies Bridge Club in Takapuna.
The Mayor praised the Organising Committee for their commitment to this new community facility.
Club President John Smith, also thanked the Organising Committee and the local community for their dedication and hard work in helping get the club rooms in good shape for bridge play.
John made special mention of local resident and knight in shining armour, Reg Smith who first suggested the North Shore Workingmen’s club rooms as a possible venue for the club.
A tasty barbecue was followed by the Mayor officially cutting the ribbon and opening the club rooms for everyone to view.
Our club members handed out flyers for bridge lessons to local residents.
Auckland Bridge Clubs attend opening of new Takapuna club
Members of other Auckland Bridge clubs attended this event in good numbers. They were impressed with the hard work it had taken to transform the old Workingmen’s club rooms into a modern and comfortable place to play bridge. These other clubs are looking forward to adding Newbies Bridge Club to the Auckland interclub bridge calendar.
Thanks to everyone who made this wonderful day possible!
