lessons provided by visiting experts over two days
Lauren Travis and Justin Williams travelled
from Adelaide to Loxton to teach the community
how to play bridge.
RBC spokesperson Kaye Quast said members
appreciated the lessons and the club was fortunate
to have such experienced players on hand.
“They were excellent teachers and imparted
their knowledge in a very clear and easy-to-follow
manner,” Mrs Quast said.
“The lessons were attended by RBC mem-
bers, and were also open to non-members.”
Mrs Quast said the pair had an extensive list of
achievements in bridge.
“Lauren Travis has played in the state team, the
state youth team five times (one year as captain),
represented Australia from 2010 to 2014 in the

Regional focus for survey
BUSINESS owners and workers along East Terrace in
Loxton are being reminded to park their vehicles outside
of the main street precinct.
Loxton District Chamber of Commerce business and
events manager Sonya Altschwager said car parks taken
by shop owners and employees could be taking away
“We want customers to have the convenience of park-
ing out the front where they need to be,” she said.
Ms Altschwager said if shop owners and employees
continued to park in front of their shops, it may force the
introduction of timed parking.
“We don’t want to introduce that,” she said.
“And we don’t want that to sound like a threat, but it
is the only other alternative.”
Ms Altschwager said parking away from the main
street was “a good habit to get into”.
“There are health benefits to parking outside of East
Terrace,” she said.
“We also have an ageing population in Loxton, so
they don’t want to park a long way away.
“We want them to have the convenience of parking
out the front where they need to be.”
Options for other parking locations include Martha
Street, Pyap Street, Bookpurnong Terrace and
the middle section of East Terrace below Big River
