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.

Generally alert pretty much anything - that's never got me in trouble to date. Yes to Stayman (at least if no 4M promised), neg dbls, Michaels, most Q's. Not sure about 2C natural ... definitely alert transfers (no announcements in WBF).

Calculations of Master Point Awards
I'd have to say I've never looked to see what an event would award BEFORE I played in it - I'm either going to play a National event seriously, or a side event for fun or to warm up. MP awards are irrelevant to me.
