I am extremely proud of my recent achievement of attaining NABC Master in a relatively short time! My first black points were earned on December 31, 2019, three weeks after my initial visit to the South Jersey Bridge Club. Little did anyone anticipate how all of our lives would drastically change over the ensuing months!
There are many people to thank in reaching this milestone. First my teachers: Lou Minter (showed me how to play bridge for the first time during a cruise in November 2019), Martin de Bruin, Dave Le Grow, Joann Glasson and Becky Levinson. Also, many people over the last two years have partnered with me and tolerated my mistakes and poor judgment: Pam, Becky, Christina, Wendy, Susan, Ann, but most importantly, John O’Rourke. Thank you all for your patience and friendship!
Finally, and of paramount significance, I would love to thank my loving wife of 40 years, Carol, who has been putting up with me, throughout these last two years, with my new addiction. Carol, thank you for your love and support!
