Local bridge with Myrnie McLaughlin

  • Posted: Sunday, September 1, 2013 1:25 a.m.

This past week many of us went to Charlotte for the regional tournament, pursuing dreams of Gold.

At this writing I don’t know how our players did. I will report next week if we had any Life Masters coming out of it. Our Friday August 23 Evergreen game was well attended and the competition lively. Winners were: First, Wade Lowder and Marvin Query (our author); second, BettyBonner Steele and Betty Bills; third, Harold and Carol Winecoff; fourth, Marie Pugh and Ruth Bowles.

This was board # 2 from Evergreen. N/S vulnerable East dealer. The Pugh/Bowles pair scored best N/S defeating their opponent’s 3NT E 4 tricks while the McLaughlin’s scored best E/W by making their 2NT E contract.
