Dresden Duplicate Bridge Club
By: By Toni Pritchett
Dresden Duplicate Bridge Club came to order with director Toni Pritchett saying we have four and a half tables of bridge players, and when the table card tells you to go to table three, you will be out one round. What an exciting game we had on this Oct. 3 afternoon.
We missed some of our regular players. Freddye Oliver had an operation in Nashville. Peggy Mayo was entertaining her son Basil and his wife Diane from Hawaii. Ruthie Jenkins was having eye surgery and Carol Ehlers is traveling in Turkey. All are doing great.
We will celebrate several birthdays next week — Joni Martin, Sarah Ann Pentecost and Toni. We will have a special October Club Appreciation game. Come bring a partner and join us. I promise you a good time. Today we had a new pair of bridge players, Margie Evans and Diane Nerrin.
Some of the refreshments were crab dip, pineapple cheese ball, pecan tarts, chocolate bars, mixed nuts, chicken salad, cheese and crackers and chocolate cake with vanilla nut icing.
Winners were Sarah Pentecost and Tom Beard, first place; Sharon and Jack Bogue, second place; Joni Martin and Jackye Hohman, third place; and our new comers Marge and Diane, fourth place.
This following recipe is a favorite of Gov. Ned McWherter.

2 cups flour, sifted
2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, grated
2 sticks margarine (room temperature)
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 teaspoon Tabasco and cayenne pepper, dash of salt
In a large bowl, mix margarine, Rice Krispies, flour, cheese, mustard, salt and pepper. Add Tabasco and mix well. Form into balls the size of walnuts. Put on cookie sheet and press with fork. Bake 350 degrees 25 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes. Serve.
