Charlene Hirschberg and Larry Olden were first prize winners in the Warwick Friends of the Library Couples’ 2016 Bridge Marathon that recently completed play. Winners were announced and prizes awarded at a gathering of the players. Genevieve and Art Lusignan received second prize and George and Dolores Gaspari finished third.
The Friends sponsors day and evening marathons for women in addition to the couples’ marathon. Entrants follow a schedule which tells them whom they will play each month and who will host the match at their home. The time for the match, which consists of 20 hands of bridge, is set at the convenience of the four people involved in that match. The marathons emphasize fun and sociability.
There is a $20 entry fee for each player and the proceeds are donated to the Albert Wisner Public Library’s Friends group. For information or to join a marathon, call Marilyn Bryan at 987-8313.
