I was booked to go to Ireland (no insurance) and was charged a large cancellation fee explained as ‘air line and hotels.’ I am trying to be in touch with the agency as air lines are now cancelling without penalty because of the situation.

There is also a requirement to talk to members who call. Not sure how easy it would be to send the calls to the associate editor who would have to be available during business hours in Memphis.

Paul Trent was playing with his girlfriend and bid a suit. She was on lead three times and never led it for him. When she showed in to the suit, Paul tore the cards into little pieces and threw them to the floor.
When the director arrived and asked, ‘what happened here?’ he said, ‘They fell on the floor and they broke!’
