Big Game!
Saturday morning at the Arcadia Bridge Center is a very popular game with a big turnout of players...   Rosemary Schroeder and Mike Connell Whupped 'em all!   They had an 82.14% game.

Maureen Peterson
A very sweet lady is gone.  Although we haven't seen Maureen for a number of years, she was certainly part of our circle of friends.  Mike Twiehaus says he heard from one of her non-bridge friends that she passed away about three weeks ago.   Maureen's name will be added to our list of departed friends.       Memorial to Lost Friends

A bridge question for upcoming players...
