Half a percentage point separated the first and second place teams at the Thursday, March 8, Island Bridge Club competition. The Sue Collinson /Barbara Besse team took first; Michael and Sandy Lindheimer came in second.
The third-place team of Joe Ashcroft and Molly Whalen — enjoying a brief break from their college faculty responsibilities off Island — were only one percentage point out of second.
Again this week six and a half tables were in play.
The ACBL-sanctioned Island Bridge Club duplicate competition is held Thursday evenings at 7 pm at the Up-Island Council on Aging in the Howes House in West Tisbury. Players needing a partner should telephone 508-693-3758 by noon on Wednesday for assistance. The cost is $5 a session.
