Duplicate bridge

The Garden City Duplicate Bridge Club held their regular game Monday night, welcoming Russ Frey to the pasteboard fray for the first time. With four full tables playing a 28-board Howell Movement, competition produced, just as two weeks ago, 29 games with 13 in no-trump, but no slams. The first-place tie last week was avoided this week as May Craig and Jon Kempton improved their game by 1.5 percent to hold first place alone. Dorothy Bartlett and Ron Patrick held second, just two points ahead of Jody Neuman and Jon Craig in third. Regular games begin at 7 p.m. Monday, 1:15 p.m. Tuesday and 2 p.m. Sunday at the Senior Center of Finney County, 907 N. 10th St., with all bridge players welcome. For partners, call Kempton at 276-2876.
