Local Bridge with Myrnie McLaughlin
Spring means Dogwood
Sessions are Friday the 17th at 1 and 6:30 p.m., Saturday the 18th at 10 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., and Sunday the Swiss teams start at 10 a.m. and continue in the afternoon after a catered lunch.
We will be hosting players from Charlotte, Concord, Winston-Salem, Greensboro, Raleigh/Durham and more. I hope most of our regular players will be available for one or more of these sessions. We need a list of players who would be willing to play with guests who need a partner and of pairs who would be able to play in the Swiss team matches. See me or John.
We also will need food for the sessions: raw vegetables for dipping, cheese cubes, any sweets, chips and dip, and fruit. We use cakes for Sunday dessert and breakfast cakes and fruit for our morning sessions. We also accept cash for covering ice, extra soda and emergencies. In advance I thank all of you for your past support and look forward to seeing you that weekend.
