Bridge is Big south of Border

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Pat Hunt, VT,

Bridge games are alive and well in this area and grow­ing all the time. Sev­eral du­pli­cate and party bridge games are on- go­ing in this area with in­creased at­ten­dance. There's a sanc­tioned du­pli­cate game in Bar­ton di­rected by Arthur and Linda Aiken on Mon­days at the Cham­ber Apart­ments. It is lim­ited to 10 tables reg­is­tered in ad­vance. On Satur­days Sheila Long di­rects a game at the Lyn­donville Li­brary. Eric Mc­Cann di­rects a du­pli­cate game at the Gate­way in New­port Wed­nes­days with some 10 to 12 tables. This one used to be held at Hole­brook Bay but out­grew the fa­cil­ity. Wed­nes­day morn­ings he has a "learner’s game" where you can drop in at the Goodrich Li­brary in New­port. Com­mu­nity Cir­cle holds bridge at the Gate­way the third Thurs­day of the month with Elaine Schur­man in charge. Faith Olsen is al­ready or­ga­niz­ing the Gourmet Bridge Club which has been go­ing on 27 years to re­sume Septem­ber 24 at the East­side Restau­rant and is held about twice a month dur­ing the fall and win­ter.
