Junior Master status! I never expected to “go” anywhere in the bridge world. How did I get here? I played bridge in college (St. Lawrence University, Canton, NY) 47 years ago – typical college bridge where most of us did not know how to keep score so only kept track of winning tricks. In June 2014 I retired from teaching and my one goal was to play bridge again and enjoy it.
I moved back to hometown of Oswego, NY and in October of that year ran into an old friend to whom I expressed my desire to get into bridge. And the next thin I knew I was playing 2 or 3 time a week and had 2 new friends who were my partners and a local bridge club that encouraged me and welcomed me into their membership. I am having fun, keeping my mind active and learning how to play “real” bridge as my parents did many years ago.
