Chuck Clarkson (left), manager of the Nelson Duplicate Bridge Club, presents Warren Watson of Trail with the Stanley Jenkinson Memorial Trophy for 2015.
Clarkson said Watson is a very popular player in the club: “He gives half-hour lessons prior to play, which many of our players attend and enjoy.”
Watson won the trophy with a record 3,100 rating points. Other top players were Hugh McSheffrey, Hugh Auld, Rogier DeWeever, and Gerry Kelly.
They play every Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the Nelson Senior Citizens building at 717 Vernon St.
New players are welcome to join the club — the first night is free. “We do our very best to find you a partner,” Clarkson said.
