Contract Bridge Association of Ireland Junior Camrose Team 2020. 4th of 6 teams doesn’t tell the story of the weekend. We had 2 debutants at this level, Sheila and Isabel who were superb teammates and won 3 from 3 matches not bad for 1st time out. Arran Bolger subbed in for a sick John Connolly and played amazingly well shows his talent against the Scots claimed at trick 1 in 4H Contract made I hope you continue to play. He partnered Stephen Barr a class player, he has a work ethic second to none and gets best line of weekend “No it’s ok Thomas I’m not angry just disappointed”. Our most solid partnership Conor Boland & Michael Donnelly, Conor has won the most National Congress competitions & masterpoints of the team and is adapting well to the new system. Michael IMO is the heart of the team gave as always a fabulous speech for the CBAI team with the approval of Dermot under 20 NPC and myself. He was received enthusiastically by the players and officials alike and did us proud. The joy and sheer positive life force I get from being their NPC is a tonic. The team with two matches to go had an outside chance of winning, the future looks bright. Finally for now thanks to my team, the other countries players officials and supporters and the Host country the Welsh Bridge Union and in particular Mel Thomas a great job.
