Laurie Kranyak Tribute at Columbus NABC

The Columbus Unit which is hosting the March 2019 NABC is raising money by selllng naming rights to events. The  Cleveland Whist Club will support Columbus by naming an event.

Diane Travis of the Cincinnati Unit has paid for a Regional Mixecd Pairs game to be named in honor of Laurie Kranyak. Diane has forked over the money herself, but is hoping that others will share some of the $400 cost.

For those of you who may not remembrer Laurie she was a Grand Life Master, the ACBL's top masterpoint category. Laurie was a wonderful player and a better person. Ken Kranyak was Laurie's husband.
