In the 2022 Interstate Teams competition our teams acquitted themselves with distinction.
The Open, Women's and Seniors teams all won their events. The Youth was in the hunt with one match to go but suffered a loss to finish third.
It was an exciting last 12 boards with the Open team withstanding a surging Victoria to win by 4 imps; the Women's team was 1 imp ahead with 12 boards to go but surged to win by 17 imps; and the Seniors team held off a fast-finishing ACT team to win by 9 imps.
The presentation stage was a sea of blue as our teams accepted their trophies in their State jackets.
