Dotti Arnold and partner Carol Whitmarsh took first place at the Thursday, March 29, Island Bridge Club competition. John O’Keefe and Don Nelson, partners for the first time, took second place. Nancy Neil, back on the Island after a winter in Florida where reportedly no bridge was played, and Cecily Greenaway came in third.
Before play commenced game manager Barbara Silk shared a few thoughts on the death last week of Judy Morse of West Tisbury, an Island bridge enthusiast. “Her smiling face and great gamesmanship will be sadly missed,” she said.
Five tables were in play.
