Local Bridge with Myrnie McLaughlin

Senior Bridge

Every February the Rowan-Salisbury Senior Games kicks off its series of events with the Silver Arts Duplicate Bridge competition.

Each county in N.C. holds Arts and Athletic events in which seniors, ages 55 and up, compete.  For more information about the game, call Phyllis Klutz at Parks and Recreation 704-216-7780.

Our Salisbury Seniors are alive and well and fully competitive. As in the past few years, Trinity Oaks sponsored the Senior Games Silver Arts bridge tournament on Monday, Feb. 6. We had 7 tables in play.
