SPECIAL HIGHLIGHTS  -- 

Wednesday  -- RETURN OF THE JEDI  The Ewoks invaded the Studio this morning at 9:30, even though some of them looked a lot  like Chewbacca – but cuter.  Bill & Ruth Cruden, Trish Hattie, June Taylor and Sheena Mackenzie got top marks for light sabres and Ewoks.  Top Masterpoint winners  this morning were Hazel Harlow (StarTrooper) & Ann Quigg (The Droids).  Afternoon winners Shirley Leblanc (Millennium Falcons)   & Sandra Hanson (The Droids).  Memorable moments – Jill Tobin in all her glitter for the Droid Team, and Rudd Race’s “pod’.  We have some great words of “Bridge Wisdom”, not to mention the fantastic treats.

Wednesday Evening 8 is Enough” Team game had 10 teams competing for the top spot and the Winning team was: Jim Mathers (ST), Rosemary Sampson (ST), Verna Macleod (MF) & Brian Ferguson (M.F.). winning all four matches.   Congratulations to Bill Ellis, Susan Hill-Ellis, Liz Cormier, & Heather Farwell, it was very nice to see lots of new faces in one of our more exciting games.  Hazel Harlow supplied the StormTroopers with mini-light sabres.   PLUS we enjoyed Galactic Snaps from Heather, PB Cookies from Hazel along with Chocolates and Candy.

3 games, 72 boards, 96 players and 653.64 masterpoints for the day.  The StormTroops and the Jedi are in a battle for first place with both the Crew of the Millennium Falcon and the Droids catching up.  Two games on Thursday and THREE on Friday – and the Saturday TEAM game could be a real game changer (we still have room for a couple more teams, let me know).  So put on your rally caps, get those Star Wars toys and come out and help your House. 

THURSDAY – featuring “The Phantom Menace”.  The Pod Race takes place – Anakin Skywalker develops as a Jedi.  Bring in your own Pod Racer, or something you might want at the Underwater city of Gungan – 35 points for the special items.  Don’t forget to wear your colours!
