Local Bridge with Myrnie Mclaughlin

I  received some flack about not having notified people about the Club Championship game we played at the Women’s Club.  We had not had an occasion to have one since our attendance had been so low.  On Aug. 30 we had 5 1/2 tables so I took advantage of that at the last minute.  I hear people don’t want to come to the Tuesday game because it’s so small.  Well if everyone came it wouldn’t be small and the points would be larger. Please come out and make the game bigger.

Here are some dates to remember for expected special games: Women’s Club Sept. 13 and 20 and Evergreen Sept. 16 and 30.  Hope to see you all there.  October games will be announced in October.

Friday, Sept. 2nd winners at our Evergreen game were: N/S 1st Marie Pugh and Ruth Bowles, 2nd Nancy Brandt and Tom Johnson, 3rd Patsy Reynolds and Toni Iossi; E/W 1st Pat Featherston and Dick Brisbin,2nd John and Myrnie McLaughlin, 3rd Chuck and Margaret Rimer.
