Playing in the final of a random-draw K.O. against Mike Passell's team one Saturday morning. The playing site was completely empty except for our two tables and the director. We got killed, but our expert opponents were generous with their bridge tips and guidance. Our entire team had 700 masterpoints vs. their 70,000+ masterpoints. The capper was a combined group photo.
Two national championships! Flight C swiss, Flight B swiss. Nowhere to go from here but up.

If you open 1H, it gets passed out for +200 and a tie for bottom. To score a top, you had to open 2C and reach 4S (+650 or +680), or 4H (+650).
Two people apparently opened 1S and played it there, making 6 for +230 on a non-trump lead ...
