There was stiff completion at the Winston-Salem sectional this past weekend. The only Salisbury winners were Dan Fowler, Bill Wisdom, Loyd Hill, and Elna Simpson-Elton. Congratulations all.

The Friday, July 19 game was well attended. We welcomed Becky Thomas as a new player paired with BettyBonner Steele. We hope to add more new names.

Winners were: first, Dick Brisbin and Pat Featherston; second, Gloria Bryant and Betsy Bare; third, Pat Macon and Judy Gealy; fourth, Betty Bills and Toni Iossi.

Today’s hand is board #14 from Friday’s game. No one vulnerable, E dealer

Pat Macon and Judy Gealy had the best N/S score 2HS+1, while Harold and Carol Winecoff had the best E/W score 3SE+1.
