Welcome from San Diego
Gail and I are about to leave San Diego, after a week of bridge and eating.
The biggest news is that Hal and Ron Huffaker won the mini-Blue Ribbon Pairs, a two day national event limited to players with fewer than 5000 points. It a hugely impressive feat.
Our grand Pooh-Bah, Iris Libby, went over 500 points this week, making her a Bronze LM.
Lots of other Diablo Valley people around here–I saw Winnie Jasper and Jerry Chamberlain, Patsy Ruth and Carol, Cecilia, Elizabeth (all the way from Hong Kong), Micky and Linda, Bob Luebkeman, Danny and Linda Friedman, Bob Munson and Nancy Blaustein. Played on a team with former local Freddy Wooten, who is leaving on a cruise with Susan Ledford soon.
Now that the NABC is over, we have STAC week starting Monday. Then the holidays, then we start the new year right with a week in Monterey at my favorite regional of all.
And the very next NABC is in Reno in March. This is going to be a very good year for bridge, I should think.
