Carol Bachl: Newest Life Master
For those of you still chasing points and are bitten by the “duplicate bug” there are three tournaments coming up in the area. Close to home are two Sectional tournaments. The Greenville, SC one runs from April 28-30–th and our area favorite, Morganton, runs May 5t-7. For full information on these games, log on to www.ACBL.org

Since we have gone totally to the BridgeMate scoring system, it is almost impossible to accurately choose a board to feature. The printout only shows a score with no information as to the suit and direction the cards were played. Please excuse the mistakes in suit and direction played.
