We played five boards a round, so East West pairs had a five board sit-out. The assembled group was smaller than usual because of the horrendous snowstorm over the weekend, which deposited about 20 inches of wet, heavy snow. There was a great amount of damage to trees that still had not shed their leaves because of the absence of truly cold, freezing, weather. Tree limbs and whole trees were down, taking with them power and cable lines. Many roads were still blocked. Extensive damage, very costly. Our small group felt cozy and neighborly. The average score was 37.5.For North South pairs, in first with 43 points (58 percent) were John Bevan and Harry Hall; in second with 39 points (52 percent) were Lily Beck and Dianne Montague, and in third with 35 points (46.67 percent) were Trish Stimpson and George Mason.
