Thank you for the recognition of attaining a Master Level – however, I am still learning and I see myself as a Continuous Student of the game and of life.

I used to play only party bridge until I retired in the Villages, FL. I have been playing here for about 4 years. The BEST thing that happened to me was to meet up with a WONDERFUL partner named Eileen Rush from Mount Pleasant, MI. Eileen and I have been partners for my time here. When we first started playing, we were getting beaten badly. But as we continued to play we learned so many conventions that got us to the best contracts possible – and this has made a huge difference in our scoring and playing.

I am so thankful for Eileen’s friendship and constant tutoring – although sometimes her tutoring is a bit too constant, but her wonderful husband Bill tells me he gets the same treatment at home, so I guess I am in good company.

Again, thank you for the recognition

respectfully submitted
