Taupo Open 5A Tournament
This two day tournament attracted players from Auckland to Christchurch.
With NZ representative players competing this was a very strong field.
16 tables playing 3 sessions over the 2 days.
Richard Solomon spent part of this week giving lessons to appreciative Taupo bridge players. He acclimatised so well that with partner Noel Grigg, they finished joint winners David and Lynette O'Shaughnessy from New Plymouth, with an overall 60.28%
