Charlestown Club had one team qualify for the regional final held at Long Jetty Bridge Club over the weekend of 30th June.   Ruth Littler, Jenny Hudson, Deanna and John Stuart fronted up for a very tough 2 days.  10 teams were in contention from Hunter Valley and Central Coast clubs.  The format was a round robin of 9 x 9 board matches.  The CBC team got off to a bad start playing some of the top teams and suffered 5 losses on the first day to be at the bottom.  However things looked up a bit on the Sunday when we recorded our first win, followed by 2 more, unfortunately to then be soundly beaten by the team finishing third.  So in the end we scored 3 wins and did not finish last.  The 2 top Hunter teams qualified for the finals, Dibley, Seldon, Mayo and Mayo; Moscovsky, Chandler, Humphery and Yandle.
