Thank you for your kind note congratulating me on attaining Bronze Life Master status. I am happy to share my experience.
My mother taught me to play duplicate bridge when I was 12 but I rarely played until I retired in 2003 and rejoined the ACBL. In 2011, I attained Life Master status. It took another 9 years to achieve Bronze Life Master status. What might be unusual is that I played only within a 50-mile radius of my home and rarely played more than once a week. I played annually in the Daytona Beach Regional and in most of the sectionals to achieve the colored points required. So, it is more than possible to reach one’s goal of becoming a Life Master/Bronze Life Master without a lot of travel and expense. All one really needs is patience, perseverance, partners, and a love of bridge.
