I have to start by thanking Chris Haxell, Jim Macfie, Bob Jarvis, and Jerry Daley for stepping up to run the Parry Sound Bridge Club on Tuesday, Aug. 14 while I was being operated on for a broken wrist.
I will also take this time to thank ‘all’ of the emergency staff at our wonderful local hospital. I would not want their jobs for all the tea in China. What a great job they do during what I would call dreadful emergencies, and I had plenty of time to witness the staff’s amazing care during my six hour stay.
It is hard to type with a woozy brain, sore right hand, and a numb left, so Chalk Talk information will have to wait until next week.
A Mitchell movement was played and after the scores were tallied the winners were as follows:
North/South: First, Holly Lipsett – Elizabeth Preston; second, Malkin Howes – Nora Robinson; third, ILA Sandwell – Margaret Hagerman; and fourth, Ann Dunnigan – Barbara Yarnold.
East/West: First and first overall, John Ducklow – Gail Payne; second, Ken Burgoyne – Chris Beck; third: Mary Stricker – Mel Prideaux; and fourth:, Brenda Burnett – Bob Jarvis.
Game results can be found in the Parry Sound section of the following web site. http://www.unit238.bridge-club.org/node/97
