Whist, Monday: 1st — Ed and Sharron, 2nd — Paul and Dumb Dumb, 3rd — Marion and Mary A.; Thursday: 1st — Ed and Sharron, 2nd — Della and Eileen, 3rd — Joanne and Marion.

Senior Games Zone 10 will host its next meeting in Kitimat on Saturday, June 27 at 1:30 p.m. I think there are a lot of athletes and participants from Prince Rupert going to the games in North Vancouver this year.

Marion and Dawn and Andrea have been working hard drumming up support and interest.  It is not about the winning of course but we do get excited when they bring home medals. To find out more about the games please visit their website at You just might find out you are old enough to go.

The bridge players who came last Tuesday to play were fortunate enough to receive lessons from Dighton. Thank you Dighton and Jane for making it happen, I hear everyone involved learned a lot about bidding and the game.

This Friday will be our last Friday Bingo until
