about me
Retired from missile defense industry. I played a lot from 1975-1987, then took about 15 years off from bridge when raising kids and coaching baseball, basketball, softball, and soccer. Then, I played 1-2 Nationals and little else for another 10 years until retiring. Since then, I've had a chance to play a lot more. Currently serve as VP, Recorder, and BOG (1st Alternate to the BOD) for D10.
