After a middling performance in the Swiss Pairs held on Saturday 16th, coming 39th out of 54 pairs with 3 wins out of 7, Ronnie Antill and Margaret Somers teamed up with the fresh pair of Janet Ritchie and Cheryl Pletz to finish 4th in the team event on the Sunday.  They started gently with losses in the first 2 rounds to be in 21st position out of 26 teams (? strategic positioning).  They then won their next 5 matches in row to finish in 4th position against some very strong teams.  Coming into the last round their position had improved from 11th to 8th when they produced their best performance, bidding and making 3 unanswered games to post a 26 imp win and secure 4th position overall!  They also were the winners in the restricted category.

Well done Ronnie, Margaret, Janet and Cheryl!!
