Aussie Day Cards

The Australia Day Mackay Contract Bridge Club “Come and Try Bridge Day”, sponsored by Mackay Regional Council was a fantastic success. Many prospective Bridge players came to watch and learn about playing Bridge. Major Greg Williamson dropped in and congratulated all on a great day. Members and guests enjoyed cards and a sausage sizzle for Australia Day.

Club Vice President Lorna Shuttlewood said, “the day was a huge success and we were pleased with the many potential players in attendance.”
