Competition has been as warm as the weather in all of our games. But unlike the water content of the air, we have been high and dry and having good indoor fun.
We look forward to this week’s games.
The winners of the Howell Movement during Friday, Aug. 16’s Evergreen game were: First, Harold and Carol Winecoff; second, John and Myrnie McLaughlin; third, Dick Brisbin and Pat Featherston; and fourth, David and Anna Goff.
