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.
