Dogwood Tournament time
The Salisbury duplicate bridge community will once again host the Annual Dogwood Tournament Friday-Sunday, March 9-11. We expect players to come from N.C., S.C., Va., Md. and Ga. to visit our city. As tournament chair I know I can count on our local players to support this project as always with attendance and food. We have quite a reputation for our wonderful snack table and our Sunday catered lunch.
Tournament sessions are Friday at 1 and 6:30 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., and Swiss Teams Sunday 10 a.m.-5 p.m. with a break for catered lunch. Now is the time to line up your partners and come out to play. If you need help with partnerships call chairman John McLaughlin at 704-636-9781 or e-mail at ladder@fibrant.com
