Local Bridge with Myrnie McLaughlin

We celebrate the summer days that are upon us. We are busy traveling and joyfully hosting family members. As a result our games are smaller but still highly competitive and fun filled.

I am recovering slowly and will be able to participate more in our games and look forward to seeing you all again soon.

We have two more milestones to report. Toni Iossi has achieved her Sectional Master status and Patty King has achieved the level of Silver Lifemaster. Congratulations!

Thank you to Dick Brisbin for running the Tuesday and Friday games while I was unable. He has done very well by me and all of us.

Our Friday, June 10 Evergreen Howell movement game was well attended and quite competitive. Winning were: 1st Dick Brisbin and Wayne Pegram, 2nd Wade Lowder and Georgia Sorensen, 3rd Andra Cozart and Jan Glover, and 4th Beth Shafer and Toni Iossi.
