A number of folks from P.A.R.C. 55 + went to hear the Community band and choir concert Sunday afternoon and reported really enjoying both.
Report on Monday afternoon games time: We had a really good number out for both Cribbage and Bridge. The cribbage winner was no stranger to the top spot. Lil Faulkner got a really low low of 10 and Germaine Roy got a really high high of 97.
From the four bridge tables, we had some very competitive bidding and playing with some really skilled players coming out on top. However, they were not new to the winners' circle. The charming, brilliant and talented Carol Walberg got the top score by only 30 points: 4380. Right behind her was the equally skilled player Aubrey Christie with 4350. Congratulations folks on some super playing.
We also would like to announce the success of P.A.R.C. 55 +ís Christmas party on Friday, November 27th. They had a lovely meal served at the Legion and a couple of hours of music and dancing. Music gratefully provided by the incomparable local artist John Stewart. Thanks to the Legion for their care.

Monday afternoon games time was again a wonderful time of visiting and playing bridge and crib. There was a relatively modest number out for cribbage but they still had a hoot of a time. The number one winner, Bill Morley, had a very high score of 50 for the winner which is usually a very low score. The high score of 99 was made by a dear Lady, Hedy Przybylski, who is often the low winner. It certainly goes to show you that the scores are not fixed since the winners are certainly moved around a lot to a variety of players.
There was a very good number of contract bridge players out: four tables of four at each. There were no new faces in the winnerís circles. Of course most of the faces in this illustrious group are not new faces but they are all very happy and kind faces. The number one spot was attained by the brilliant and charming young fellow, Bob Collette, with a great score of 5026, but right on his figurative tail was the equally sharp and adept Carol Walberg with as great a score of 4430. Congratulations dear folks on some phenomenal playing. I, your humble reporter, would feel ecstatically exuberant to get such scores but I have a great time rubbing shoulders with such intelligent people. Perhaps some of the skill will rub off. Thanks for coming out folks.
We will see you all again next Monday at 1:00 p.m. in the Rotary Hall of the Port Elgin Plex. You will be pleased to learn that we have some very reputable bridge teachers come to our site very soon: a week or so Iíve heard.
