Ron Moeckel
Ann Banta gave me the sad news that a long-time member of our bridge friends is gone.  Ron Moeckel played bridge with us for over 40 years and contributed much to our unit as well as being a Sapphire Life Master and an excellent player.   Sadly, we are losing our friends.

Winners/Losers Game
This Sunday is the once-a-month game where both winners and losers from last month get to play for $5:00.... The rest of us pay the normal bridge fees. Game time is 1:00 at the Arcadia Bridge Center.
