Local Bridge with Myrnie McLaughlin

Bridge fun

A wonderful time was had at our Dec. 7 Christmas party at Santo’s Restaurant. It is always good to spend informal time with each other and to meet spouses and significant others. We missed those who were not able to attend and hope you can make it next year. I look forward to seeing you all soon.

As mentioned in my last article, there are some problems that have arisen with our use of the Bridgemates. North position is responsible for entering the information required but some people who need to sit in a N/S position are not comfortable doing so. There is a remedy. Don’t be too proud to ask E/W to make the entries for you. E/W can help you learn. Many of us know how and are glad to assist.

The other problem generating complaints is North not letting E/W review the entry result. It is not just a nice thing to do, it is a requirement. Any time there is a problem with the Bridgemate either entry or consistent refusal to allow review, a director call is in order. If anyone is consistently non-compliant, 1 point will be taken away from that pair for each incident of non-compliance. Once E/W OKs the results both pairs are responsible for wrong entries. I don’t like this move but something has to be done.

Friday, Dec. 8 Evergreen game was well attended. Winners were: N/S 1st Becky Creekmore and Dick Brisbin, 2nd Betty Bills and BettyBonner Steele, 3rd Don Webster and Ron Caudle and 1st strat B Georgia Sorensen and Fred Bachl;

E/W 1st Judy Gealy and Fern Albracht, tied for 2nd /3rd Patty and Robbo Williams and Jean and Loyd Hill with 2nd in strat B Genny Mozolak and Joe O’Brien.
