Encore - Sunday play will continue to the end of September

Since we are having such nice weather and our regulars want to better their scores before the end of the season.  Play will be extended.
Bon Chance.
Congratulation to Jeanne on her double win last week and on Peggy for her win.  Everyone is playing so well.
We also had a nice contingent from the French Conversational Meetup:  Cat, Steve, Ankit, Julia, and Alexandra.  Thanks to Julia for organizing the event, and congratulations to Alexandra, a first time player, on her first win.
