Organising a game against a Ballina player
A new Ballina Bridge web site is under development.
The first feature of the web site will help Ballina players arrange online games amongst themselves.
To get more information you can read an explanation of how to use the new site at https://ballinabridge.org.au
Or dive right in and start using the Organiser.
The more people that use the system, the more opportunities there will be for you to find a game with one of your partners at a time that suits you. So, get involved, let Ballina's Organiser know what you want so it can help you get it.
Cup Sweep Apology
The payments for prizegetters in the Melbourne Cup sweep were made before the race results were declared official. As you may know there was a protest and the initial result was corrected by the stewards.
The result was that the second-past-the-line horse "Master of Reality" was relegated to fourth place. Unfortunately, I had already paid holders of that horse the second place money.
The third-past-the-post horse "Prince of Arran" was promoted to second place. Unfortunately, I had already paid holder of that horse the third place money.
The fourth-past-the-post horse "Il Paradiso" was promoted to third place. Unfortunately, holders of that horse received no money.
I apologise for these errors.
(The biggest monetary loser was the holder of "Prince of Arran" in the $10 sweep. They received $20 instead of $80. If it is any consolation that person was me. "Good Sport" award goes to Irene Chapman who rang me to offer the money. I declined.)
Vouchers cost $5.00 and can be purchased in any quantity
