Put bridge lessons to good use

For those of you who have for years been studying bridge from books and lessons, it’s time to use those lessons in real competition.
Math and English taught in school is only worth the study when you leave school and use them.
The Winecoffs greatest wish is that their students come out to play. With that in mind, I extend this challenge: Any of Harold and Carol’s students can play free this next Friday at Rufty-Holmes.
I also issue this promise: You will have a pleasant experience. Hope to see many of you.
We had sevem tables in play Friday, Nov. 15 with many winners. N/S: First, Carol Bachl and Judy Gealy, and first overall; second, Marie Pugh and Ruth Bowles, and second overall; third, Gloria Bryant and Judy Hurder.
E/W: First, Patty King and Becky Creekmore and third overall; second, Chuck and Margaret Rimer; third, Pat Featherston and Dick Brisbin.
The McLaughlins were second in B section and the Goffs were first in the C section.
