Local Bridge with Myrnie McLaughlin

Over the past few weeks our Salisbury games have been smaller than usual. Many of our players, as encouraged to do so, took advantage of the Charlotte Regional and the Winston-Salem Sectional.

Many of them earned points to advance their ACBL standing. Tournament play is exciting and challenging and often makes players want to compete in more bridge.  Congratulations to all who “took the plunge.”

We are ready to welcome all of you back to our local games, charged up and ready to win.

Friday, Nov. 6 Evergreen game winners were: First, Dick Brisbin and Pat Featherston; second, Margaret and Chuck Rimer; third, Joe O’Brien and Genny Mozolak; and fourth, Stella Shadroui and Maggie Canup.
