Stuart and Louise Eastwood had a 75.5% game to achieve first place in April 2004’s Helen Shield’s Rookie Master Game.  The Eastwood’s feel a key to their success is their good partnership understanding of a very basic bidding system and partnership respect.  Stuart a recent Bronze Life Master plays many modern conventions with tournament players but with his wife Louise they keep it simple.  Louise, a promising advancing player, is developing an interest in duplicate bridge and this year she has participated in the Mentoring Program with her husband Stuart at the MC&G Bridge Studio in Halifax.
