Greg Michaels, for being on the winning team in the 0-10,000 masterpoint Swiss Teams at the Fall NABC in San Diego. Greg was partnered with his ex-wife (and you think you have partnerhsip issues!). Greg also was the top District 5 masterpoint winner in San Diego. Here is the happy winning team:
Stephanie Alexander and Jeff Alexander, for winning the most STaC week masterpoints in our District's 2017 STaC week. They won 34.91 masterpoints. AND, Jeff passed 10,000 masterpoints. A pretty good week, especially since Jeff is recovering from cataract surgery and can sort of see the cards.
Bernie Greenspan, the top masterpoint winner from our Unit at the recently completed Pittsburgh Regional. Bernie won over 65 masterpoints during the tournament including being on the winning A team in the Strati-Flighted A/X Swiss Teams on Sunday.
Don Sulgrove, the overall winning masterpoint winner at the just concluded All-American Regional. Don was slightly ahead of his wife Kathy and they both were more than 30 points ahead of the third place player.
Stan Dub, Greg Michaels and Bernie Greenspan, for outstanding results at the Kansas City NABC. Stan and Greg finished 6th in the nationally rated Leventritt Silver Ribbon Pairs (open to players over 50 years old) and Bernie won more masterpoins than any other Unit member.
