The Bridge Clubs are ready to get back to the challenging game of bridge on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
Christmas and New Year are behind us. Just as we prepared to start back, the weather man made the galvanic remark that we were facing the next two weeks of the coldest weather ever. The frigid temperatures gripped our bridge players for nigh on to two weeks.
The heating of buildings made it difficult and players had to wear jackets and fur coats. Hot coffee and spirited beverage warmed the crowd.
The Tuesday night club gathered at the Legion Building to make startling bids and getting magnificent results.
Two of our “Drama Queens,” Linda Jennings and Becky Bennett, got their culinary efforts together and served steaming hot potato soup with sour cream, bacon bits and grated cheese and hot jalapeno cornbread squares. Baked crackers and cheese slices adorned the soup. Two chocolate pies and a mincemeat pie settled everyones sweet tooth. Nuts were served through out the evening along with a drink of your choice, Coca Cola, Dr. Pepper, coffee and water.
Winners of this game were first Alma Ford and Sarah Pentecost, second Jane Young and Sandra Klutts and third Linda Jennings and Becky Bennett.
We missed JoAnn Campbell, a regular player. We expect her back in two weeks.
The Wednesday Duplicate Club met Jan. 13 and had 24 players. We are always glad to have such a large group. Everyone was really ready to get back to their favorite pastime game. On the table was chicken salad, crackers, cheese and crackers, dip with Ritz and dip with baked potato chips. A La Torta with Sun-dried Tomato, Basil Pesta and Buttery Cream Cheese layers were served with Garlic Bagel Chips. Our Cake Queen, Alma, brought her delicious chocolate cake with chocolate icing.
Winners were: first in North/South-Carolyn Rogers and Roberta Meyer, second-Freddye Oliver and Jack Bogue and third- Toni Pritchett and Dr. Tom Mayo.
Winners in East/West were: first-Minnie Bess Williams and Lois Harbour, second-Tom Beard and Sarah Pentecost and third- Carol Ehlers and Jackye Hohman.wcp 1-19-10
