    Warwick — Dolores Gaspari and Cathy Tansey were first-prize winners in the Warwick Friends of Library Bridge Marathon I in the recently completed round of play. Winners were announced and prizes awarded at a luncheon. Second prize was awarded to Johnno McDonald and Mary Filiciotto. Joyce Murphy and Judy Malkan finished third. The Friends sponsors day and evening marathons for women in addition to a couples’ marathon. Entrants follow a schedule which tells them who they will play each month and who will host the match at their home. The time for the match, which consists of 20 hands of bridge, is set at the convenience of the four people involved in that match. There are usually seven matches in a round played over a year’s time. The marathons emphasize fun and sociability. There is a $20 entry fee for each player and the proceeds are donated to the Wisner Public Library’s Friends group. For information or to join a marathon, call Alice Boyle, 986-9839.
