The latest newsletter is now available on the News and Happenings page. One of the items is a report from Andrew Xiao about the recent excursion of some of our students to the Bridge Club. Another example of the fact FDMC is not just all about eating your lunch and playing sport!
Finally, after a year of blood, sweat and tears, Dr Frengley permitted us to play against the members of the New Plymouth Bridge Club in a series of games. The intense silence that greeted us was, at first, intimidating. However, it was short lived. We settled into our tables and met our partners for the first <me. At this point we were extremely afraid of disappointing each other. The difficulty of learning the new system of Bridge was dauntng to say the least. Silent bidding, different arrangements and duplicate hands were very foreign to us. However, we adjusted to these changes accordingly. We played many rounds and at the end of the night, went home satisfied knowing we had done our very best. Finding out the result was shocking -‐ none of us expected to be placed in the top 10. However, we had scored from 5th to 7th. Andrew Xiao 5th, Vanshay Bindra 6th and John Frengley 7th. Overall the night was both entertaining and educational and we would love to go again.
