Local Bridge with Myrnie McLaughlin
You Too Can Play Bridge
As I write this,our players are gearing up for the Dogwood Tournament and as you read this the tournament will be in its last day. I hope you all enjoyed the weekend.
There have been frequent inquiries like “How do you play bridge and can you teach me?” There are several opportunities in our community to learn this skill. Just recently Dick Brisbin started a class for raw rookies who know little or nothing about the game but are eager to learn. This class, at Rufty-Holmes Senior Center, is presently full, but to enroll or for questions call Dick Brisbin at 980-234-0373. Our clubs look forward to including these students in our games when they are ready.
Harold and Carol Winecoff continue their lessons for those who know the basic conventions, and want to hone their skills to improve their game. This series is also held at Rufty-Holmes Senior Center, on Friday mornings at 10 a.m.
The Friday, March 4 Evergreen game was well attended. Winning: N/S First, Nancy Brandt and Tom Johnson; second, Dick Brisbin and Pat Featherston; third, Joe O’Brien and Genny Mozolak; E/W First, Fern Albracht and Christy Cline; second, Chuck and Margaret Rimer; third, Pat Macon and Judy Gealy.
