Bridge Club News Returns
Sorry to have missed the article last Sunday. We were away in Yellowstone Park. If you haven’t been there it’s well worth the trip. Because of this lapse, we need to catch up on many games. Thanks to Dick for running the games.
As a reminder, don’t forget these tournament dates: Oct. 2-4, the sectional in Morganton run by Eldon Clayman, (he always provides a great time) and Oct. 26-Nov. 1 the Charlotte Regional Tournament. This is a great chance for our players wanting Gold points to plan to be there. Gather your teams for knock-out sessions. These still remain your best bet for Gold.
