about me

Learned to play bridge in college (Texas Tech University) where I studied Civil Engineering.  Joined the Navy in 95 and spent 15 years as an Officer on Aircraft Carriers and Destroyers.  Working at the Surry Nuclear Power Station, about an Hour SE of Richmond VA.  I am looking for a serious -long term bridge partner to meet at NABCs and maybe an occassional regional.

2020 North American Online Bridge Championships

Master as a racist term

It is like saying since 2-3% of the top level bridge players cheat, all top level bridge players cheat (2-3 % of the population is racist therefore ...

When will be the next national?
Since he has been so public about cancelling his membership I am wondering why he even cares....
Fall National and all remaining 2020 Sectionals/Regionals Cancelled
I cannot like the last 3-paragraphs enough --maybe we can host a tournament in Columbia that week that is NOT an ACBL tournament and start a new bridge organization that cares more about Bridge than politics!! Lets use this to get a new beginning.
