Genny Mozolak and Joe O’Brien had the best N/S score bidding 3NS making 4 while Patty King and BettyBonner Steele were best E/W defeating 2NS 3 tricks. A spade lead (4th from longest and strongest) allows the contract to be made while a diamond lead defeats it.
On March 7 our Women’s Club winners were: 1st Pat Featherston and Dick Brisbin, 2nd Shirley and Ron Jeffers, 3rd Fern Albracht and Myrnie McLaughlin, 4th Ruth Bowles and Jean Hill.
