about me

I'm a retired IT professional now living in a small southwestern Ontario town with my husband, John Carruthers, and our two cats, Scully and Emma (Peel).


I started playing bridge in university, was introduced to duplicate in 1970 and here I am many years later, having taken some years off due to demands of work and family. I've been very fortunate to have represented Canada internationally on and off since 1984.


I also enjoy genealogy, gardening, reading and travelling.

Are partnership agreements & "inferences " thereto, alert able in ACBLand?
We asked the ACBL that very question some years ago (so maybe it has changed?), and they said NO. I personally disagree with that. Additionally, with a current partner, we play "optional" support doubles i.e. you are not committed to make a support double unless you have a hand ...
