Special Congratulations To

  • Brian Ellis, who has been elected to be District Director for District 5.  Brian replaces Sharon Fairchild, who has served as District Director for over 20 years.  Brian's three year term begins December 1.  We all wish Brian great success in his new role.
  • Phil Becker and Fleur Howard,

    the leading masterpoint winners at our November Buckeye State Sectional. They earned 24.96 masterpoints. We had 166 tables in play.  The full results are HERE.

  • KATHY SULGROVE,

    for finishing second in the Women's Pairs at the World Bridge Federation's World Championships. The World Championships were in Orlando from September 21 to October 6. The Women's World Championship is held every four years and began in 1962 at the first WBF world championships. Kathy's partner was Candace Griffey. The winners were from France and the third place team was from China. The event was six days with three sessions each day.

    AND, Phil Becker and Ken Kranyak finished ninth in the Senior Pairs World Championship.

    So, the next time you look up and see Sulgrove, Becker or Kranyak above you on a result sheet, say to yourself, "Well I got beat by some pretty darn good players."

And Even More Special Thanks To

  • Sue Cutler and Barbara Greenspan,

  • Dave Hobe,

    for putting on a great Silver Bowl Sectional. The turnout exceeded our expectations (14 tables more than last August).
