Eight is Enough Team Game - April 17
We had a great turnout with 18 tables for our 8 in enough charity team game.  $1 from each entry  is going to support our local charity "Loving Spoonful". Peggy Hutchison and Vicki Lynn Macauley teamed up  with Helen Johston and James Carroll and won overall with a great score of 66 victory points, collecting 3.0 masterpoints. Thank you to Don Kersey for directing and to all the players who participated.
It was a fun event.
