Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Poor pair game movements

Jeff, I have played on a CAT team where one player was getting to the point she would not be able to continue to play bridge. She wanted to make life master but she needed .03 Gold. We won our strat and she became a Life Master. That Gold dust ...

The State fair in this area is important. We lost use of one of our newly trained Team directors due to his commitment to work he does a the Fair. And unless they have changed Unit 176 Dallas, used to never schedule tournaments during the fair. The proposal for the ...
