about me

I recently completed six years on the Board of Directors for the Seattle Bridge Unit. I am on the ACBL Board of Governors and the Competitions and Conventions Committee. I also help manage and direct a once-a-week bridge club on Mercer Island. And occasionally I find time to play bridge too. Smile

Open Memphis Discussion Thread
I never understood the move of the Red Ribbon Pairs. It was perfectly situated just before the NAP B/C's.
Eric Sieg's bidding problem: KT6 98 JT KQ9752
