I started playing bridge when I was a midshipman at the United States Naval Academy in the early 1960s. After graduation I played party bridge for seven years. When I was stationed in San Diego, CA a friend of mine and I started playing at the local bridge club 2-3 times a month for about a year. I moved to the East Coast in the late 1970s and a friend of mine and I desired to learn Precision club and play at the Arlington, VA bridge club. We had our ups and downs, but accumulated some master points. In 1978 we moved to New Jersey and I played Party Bridge until about four years ago when I learned 2 over 1 and started playing duplicate again. For the last couple of years I have been playing with the same partner and together we both just passed 100 master points for Regional Masters. We are not sure how much further we can go, but we will give Life Masters a run.
