Local Bridge with Myrnie McLaughlin

Plain and Simple

Our games have been well attended and we are having a lot of fun.  Because of Thanksgiving and the preparations being made, today I am just reporting the facts and only the facts for the games. I hope you all had a great family day.

The November 18th Evergreen game had 8 tables in play. Our winners N/S 1st Fern Albracht and Christy Cline, 2nd Judy Gealy and Carol Bachl, 3rd Nancy Brandt and Tom Johnson: E/W 1st John and Myrnie McLaughlin, 2nd Becky Creekmore and Patty King, 3rd BettyBonner Steele and Rosemary Sokolowski. We have been playing computer generated hands so we have print outs after the game for study purposes.
