The Avonlea Heritage Museum was host to 80 enthusiastic bridge players on Saturday in the local Community Hall. They started arriving shortly after 9:00 a.m.—in time for a refreshing cup of coffee and muffin before play began at 10.
Five rounds of 4 games each were played in the morning and another 5 rounds after lunch with the losing couple of the first round moving up to the next table throughout the day. The majority being seniors from Regina, Moose Jaw and several towns in between, found the drive very pleasant on such a beautiful morning.
The Museum ladies served a hot lunch at noon and after the tournament cleaned up and were out of the hall by 4:00 p.m. to make room for the Arrows Hockey Draft supper and program that evening.
As this social group meets almost every Saturday at different clubs in and out of the cities, many good friends are made and all hope for good cards to make the day special.
The Museum Board realized $511 from the $10 registration fee and the 50/50 to help with museum expenses this summer.
Congratulations to all. It was a great turn-out with 20 tables in play. Thank you all for attending.
