Dresden Duplicate Bridge Club

Posted: Wednesday, April 4, 2012 12:49 pm

Dresden Duplicate Bridge Club had two games this past week.
The Tuesday night club, “The Dresden Dolls,” had three tables and one gentleman, Richard Thompson.
Food appearing on the table was peach salsa and Doritos, corn chips and cheese and cashew and almond nuts and Coke and Sprite.
This was our quarterly Club Championship Game. Kathy Chandler and Jo Ann Campbell were first, receiving 1.52 points for their efforts; second was  Jane Young and Bertha Henry, acquiring 1.14 points; and third was Alma Ford and Sara Pentecost, receiving .85 points.
Playing on the second and fourth Tuesday nights, they will play again April 10 and 24.  
Any bridge players can join us for this delightful and challenging game of bridge.
On Wednesday afternoon, the club had four tables and played 28 hands.
There was lots of food to whet and satisfy our appetites.
We love Alma Ford when she comes in early and brings a tray of red apples, a banana nut loaf, hot Mexican cornbread and a huge strawberry cake.
Tom Beard brought in an outstanding devil’s food chocolate nut cake. He said he got up and made it early that morning, but it had all the “ear marks” of an E. W. James’ delicious cake! Also, more peach salsa, a white brick of cheese and colby jack cheese and crackers and assorted nuts were partaken that day.
Winners were: first, Jackye Hohman and Carol Ehlers of Paris; second, Alma Ford and Bertha Henry of Martin; and third, Minnie Bess Williams of Paris and Lois Harbour of Union City.
Last  week for 10 days, there was a National Bridge Tournament in Memphis, and several of our players from here, Paris and Union City went to bring home Gold Points.
Also, Lois and John Harbour from Union City (they do our recording of bridge games on the  computer now) also attended and took the directors’ study  to become directors for bridge games.
After three days of complete studying and concentrating, they took the test and came home.  Lois complained that she was brain dead after so much schooling.
But now congratulations are in order for both Lois and John. They passed and are now Certified Bridge Directors. Published in The WCP 4.3.12
