Café Bliss Competition – Girls named Mary! Having the Christian name Mary was certainly a good omen in last week’s Café Bliss competition: No less than all three winners are called Mary.

In second place was the consistent Mary Donnelly playing off 21 also with a fine 38 points. Filling the 3rd spot was Mary French playing off 34 with 35 points. Mary has been playing very little this season, but this results augers well for the rest of the season.
