THE LAKE BRIDGE CLUB PRESIDENT’S DINNER 2016
The “President’s Prize Competition” culminating with President’s Dinner is the highlight of the year for the Lake Bridge Club.
This year our dinner was on the 4th May 2016.
There was a large attendance at what was a truly festive occasion with representations from Belvedere Bridge Club , Ennell Bridge Club, Golf Bridge Club and Bridge Centre present.
In his speech the President Gerry O Gorman spoke of a club going from strength to strength with an ever increasing membership.
He mentioned the high standard of competitive, yet friendly bridge, being played in our Lake Club at our excellent Bridge & Amenity Centre.
He spoke about a great mix of people and personalities all drawn together by their love of Bridge and how great friendships are made in the club.
Following the speeches there was a great expectation as to who won the much coveted President’s Prize.
Announcing the winners back to front Brendan Colleary and John Keane were declared the overall winners of the competition.
Being relatively new to the club a clearly delighted Brendan and John likened their win to that of Leicester winning the Premier League.

President’s Charity Night
Our annual president’s charity night was held on the 17th February 16. This year the chosen charity was LARCC. The night proved very successful with large attendance. Thanks to the generosity of our members and visitors to our club on the night we managed to raise €730.00 for LARCC.
Analagh Fun Night.
We had a very successful “Analagh Fun Night” on the 4 March 2016 with a much higher attendance than usual for a Friday night. Players enjoyed a good night of bridge with light refreshments during the night which ended with a free raffle for lots of lovely prizes and of course prizes for the competition. Congratulations go to the winner of the Analagh Trophy, Carmel Maher and Sean Galligan.
Friday night bridge is proving very popular with an increasing number of new members and visitors joining the club for a very enjoyable evening. There is a mixture of the very experienced players with the relatively inexperienced players. Friday nights provide a great introduction to our club where players may improve and hone their skills to take on our excellent bridge players on the Wednesday night.
Founder Members Competition
This is a major event on our club calendar. It is a team of four competition.
This year the event took place on the 9th March 16.
The teams were balanced with a great mixture of players on each team seeded on the basis of their handicaps.
Team results were compared and posted on the Scoreboard with very little separating the team’s right up to the last round. It was this combined with the mixture of players and the team element that provided the ingredients that made this a very competitive and most enjoyable competition.
Eventually Kathleen O Hara, John Butler, Roger Conway and Kathleen Daly were the team that emerged as proud overall winners of the competition. The gross winning team was Monica Harris, Brid Galligan, Theresa Maguire and Joan Delaney. Second Nett went to Mary Maxwell, Theresa Frayne, Susan Brown and Mary Savage. The third nett winners were Eileen Leavy Kay, Kirley, Helen Lynch and Mary Reilly.
Congratulations go to all of the winners
