Local Bridge with Myrnie McLaughlin

The Wilmington, N.C. Regional was very exciting for six of our regular NLM players searching for Gold and Red points. Judy Gealy, Carol Bachl, Fern Albracht, Pat Macon and Shirley and Ron Jeffers came home big winners. Congratulations all!!

Up until last Friday, Jan. 30, speed of play had been an issue. Thanks to all for playing faster. We got all hands played and scores were tabulated well before 5 p.m. The stress level was low, play was smooth, we were relaxed and still had fun.

I want to keep this pace in all games. To insure this, I will have to begin giving penalty points to those who hold us up on a regular basis. No one needs to be penalized. You all can keep up the pace without trouble.

There were 7.5 tables in play at Evergreen on Friday, Jan. 30. Winning N/S: First, Patty King and Loyd Hill; second, Nancy Stanback and Betty Bills; third, Gloria Bryant and Betsy Bare.

E/W winners: First, visitors Peter Boyd-Bowman and MaryAnn Young; second, John and Myrnie McLaughlin; third, Dick Brisbin and visitor Tom Johnson.

Overall winners: First, Peter Boyd-Bowman and MaryAnn Young; second, John and Myrnie McLaughlin; third, Patty King and Loyd Hill; fourth, Nancy Stanback and Betty Bills; fifth, Gloria Bryant and Betsy Bare.

Highlighted is hand #7
