A group of 40 bridge players had a great time on Saturday at the first Bridge & Brunch event offered for social bridge players at the Queenston Heights Restaurant.
Organized by Marlene Walther and supported by the Niagara Parks Commission, the day started with bridge at 9:30 a.m., followed by brunch at 12:30 p.m.
Prizes were awarded for those with the best score, the worst score, for driving the farthest, having the most number of tricks down, for doubling the opponent for penalty, as well as other fun categories, says Walther. Players from all over the Niagara region mixed and mingled and made many new friends in the bridge community.
“The setting was beautiful and the food was delicious,” says Walther.
In attendance was Kim Viney, senior director of business development for Niagara Parks, who picked the grand prize-winning ticket of two passes to all 11 Niagara Parks attractions. It was won by Kathy Swayze from Welland.
The other door prizes were two Niagara Parks water bottles and cooler bags, won by Linda Campanelli from Fonthill and Mary Lou Bradley from Grimsby, and a $25 LCBO gift card won by Nancy Kemball from Niagara-
The most often heard comment at the end of the day, says Walther, was: “‘When are we doing this again?’s So, stay tuned for the next one.”
