Mackay and Whitsunday Life
Wet weather provides a perfect excuse for a game of cards and Mackay Contract Bridge Club are inviting visitors to come and learn the game of bridge on Australia Day.
While members will be playing their regular bridge, the Come and Try Day invites guests to come and watch, learn how the game is played and even pick up some cards and have a go.
Joy Block and her husband have been playing bridge for two years and still consider themselves beginners, saying the club has been very welcoming.
“It’s very challenging, it keeps your mind going,” Ms Block said.
“We’re a very friendly club, lots of lovely people there.
“If you love cards, you’ll just love bridge, but it is challenging, it’s not an easy game, you have to be persistent.”
People of all ages are welcome to participate, with the club’s youngest member being 10 years old.
“It probably helps if you’ve played cards of some description before, but you don’t need to have any specific knowledge because it’s different to any game that anybody’s probably played,” Ms Block said.
A free morning tea and sausage sizzle will also be on offer thanks to sponsorship from the Mackay Regional Council.
