Unit Christmas Party
It was just 7 days ago that a big old Cadillac came crashing through the wall into the bridge club, and still we managed to have a first rate party this afternoon.
Beginning at noon, the choral group Jazz Infinitum entertained with their a capella renditions. The group is headed by Jim Heiner, and includes Iris Libby, Nancy Marling, Ann Bergmann, Jody Praklet, David Eimerl and Chuck Wong. They seem to have a preference for minor keys, which I’ve often heard in choral groups but don’t understand, but it’s an interesting blend of doo wop and uptown jazz. Here is a video of them doing Under the Boardwalk:
There was the customary ton of food, ranging from Costco sandwiches to deviled eggs to John Marron’s traditional English Trifle. Someone brought a box of little liquor-filled chocolates. I saw Eldonna nipping at one, hope she isn’t dancing on any tables tonight.
The bridge game got started: there were 20 1/2 tables, divided into two sections but scores across the field. Don Steedman and Vicki Chang had a 70% game to take home all the marbles.
People came dressed for the season. I got my little camera out, and took a bunch of photos of whoever caught my eye. Click on any photo and then you can scroll through the lot of them.
No moss growing on THIS bridge club! Huzzah!
“They seem to have a preference for minor keys” Does this
mean they sing in clubs (and diamonds)?
