Dogwood Duplicate Bridge Tournament this weekend at senior center

The annual Salisbury Dogwood Duplicate Bridge Tournament will be held at Rufty-Holmes Senior Center beginning Friday, March 23, through Sunday, March 25. The Senior Center is located at 1120 S. Martin Luther King Ave.
This event will bring as many as 400 people to the city who will be using our hotels and restaurants.
Many of these restaurants have donated more than $950 worth of prize coupons to be awarded to the participants of the event. The Cheerwine company has donated drinks and the Quality Inn at Jake Alexander and Klumac has agreed to be the host hotel for out-of-town players, giving special tournament rates.
The tournament schedule begins at 1 p.m. Friday for the first session, and 7 p.m. for the second Friday session. The two Saturday sessions are at 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Sunday is a Swiss Team event beginning at 10 a.m. and concluding about 5 p.m. A meal catered by Debbie Suggs is included with the entry fee.
The entry fees for Friday and Saturday are $8 per person per session. Each player will have to bring a partner. Swiss teams consist of four players and the cost per team is $88.
Each session is stratified so completion will be within your point range. Points will be awarded to all successful players. All Sunday teams will be stratified as well. Everyone will compete in brackets with players of similar experience.
Tournament chairpersons are Myrnie and John McLaughlin, 704-636-9781.
