Local Bridge with Myrnie McLaughlin

Salisbury Bridge is unique

“What’s different about your clubs?” visitors have asked.  On reflection I can truly say that of all the clubs in the area we are a club of true friends. We not only play bridge together we support and care about each other in good times and bad. We know our downs and our joys.  May it ever be so.  Thanks to Dick Brisbin for filling in for me when I’m gone and for the willingness of the Winecoffs and Jeffers to act as directors in case of disputes. As a director I couldn’t ask for a kinder more supportive group of people.
