Duplicate bridge

The Garden City Duplicate Bridge Club played a 25-board Howell movement April 1, splitting 15 games, with suits up by one while one slam succeeded. Competition for first place made the margin thin as Mark and Jody Neuman challenged for the win, but a half-point extra eked out by May Craig and Jon Kempton sealed their top spot with a 62.5 percent game.

Regular games begin at 7 p.m. Monday and 1:15 p.m. Tuesday at the Senior Center of Finney County, 907 N. 10th St., plus sanctioned games start at 2 p.m. Sunday, with all bridge players welcome. For partners, call Kempton at 276-2876.
