Local Bridge with Myrnie McLaughlin

Let the Senior Games Begin

Can’t believe it’s mid-February. That means that the Senior Games, which stretch from now through August, are about to begin. Monday, Feb. 23 at 1 p.m. is the Senior Games Duplicate Bridge tournament. Trinity Oaks is once again sponsoring this event. We always have a great time with great snacks provided by our sponsor. The other Senior Games events include the Silver Arts competition in March with the various individual and team sports competitions following at intervals through August. If you are 50 years of age and up you are eligible to compete. For more information about these games go online at www.rowanseniorgames.org

And before we know it, March will bring the Dogwood Sectional held at Rufty-Holmes Senior Center March 13-15. I’ll give more information on this event in the near future.  Please mark your calendars and prepare to attend these activities.

Our Evergreen game on Friday, Feb. 6 was well attended. Winning first was Wade Lowder and Fred Bachl; tied for second/third: Pat Featherston and Dick Brisbin with Ruth Bowles and Marie Pugh; fourth, Christy Cline and Fern Albracht; fifth, Gloria Bryant and Wayne Pegram.
