Women's Contact Halloween Party

These two look like trouble!

Women's Contract opening party was delightful. Everyone said the food was yummy. I wouldn't know because I was late and only had dessert, which was lava cake with ice cream--fantastic! 

Good News! WCC has opened membership to all women with 50 points or more. So, if you're looking for another fun game to join--Women's Contract is it. Especially, for new members because the big masterpoint players are all generous with their  advice but only if you ask . And, I do!

Here's a couple of pictures from the Opening Party held at Woodstock Country Club:

Dinner & Bridge - We all had a delicious meal prepared by Diane Roberts! And, then, we had a fun game with 10 tables. If you see Diane, please thank her for all her hard work and giving IBC 40 extra players that week!
