I started playing in 1976, and loved it!! I quit playing for periods of time when my 3 children were young. By the third child, I had her enrolled in Mothers Day Out before she was born and played once a week. After they were all in school, I played as often as I could during the week and went to tournaments around the Houston area (numerous) where I lived. I was elected President of the Friday Club at the Houston Bridge & Games Studio and was the youngest ever to hold that position.
