Local Bridge with Myrnie McLaughlin

BridgeMate Scoring has arrived

Summer trips and family visits are upon us, but attendance is still growing. Thanks for taking time to make bridge an included activity.

Winston-Salem is hosting a sectional tournament July 24 through July 26 at the Winston-Salem Fairgrounds Home and Garden building, 421 Ss 27th St., W-S 27105. Cindy Wright is in charge.  More info is available on the ACBL web site or call Cindy at 1-336-758-3322. This is an opportunity for Salisbury to support the Winston group as they support us.

As headlined, the BridgeMate scoring system has come to Salisbury. Thanks go to Unit 169 for helping us obtain the system at a discount. I am diligently working to learn how to set-up and operate the software system.  Of course, the set-up instructions that promise simplicity are not so simple. It may be a few weeks before we’re up and running. Bear with me.

On Friday, July 10 our Evergreen game was very competitive. Most boards were played in the same suits but with very different outcomes. Defense was definitely important in this session.

Winning pairs were: First, Patty King and Loyd Hill; second, Judy Hurder and wayne Pegram;  third, Betty Bills and BettyBonner Steele; fourth, Marie Pugh and Ruth Bowles.
