And the Winner Is.......
This Bridgewebs bridge club site lets us put up various competitions online. This months competition from Feb 4- Feb 26 is for the person with the highest number of slams bid and made. I added that if there was a tie, the tiebraker would be the number of Grand Slams. Well we did have a tie: Misha Tomic and Greg Michaels. They both had 9, a number of which they earned together. But Misha went off and got a Grand Slam with another partner, so I declare him the winner. We had a six-way tie for the next places with a total of 6 slams in the month.
March Competition will be total wins bases on 3 for a 1st place in your section, 2 for Second, and 1 for Third Place. I will name a winner for each rank - over 1000 masterpoints A, 300-1000 B, and 0-300 C. Ellen

We are sad to note the passing of long-time Bridge Studio player Jerry Siskin on January 31st at the age of 92 after a short illness. He was still playing with us a few weeks before. Jerry will be remembered as a really nice, friendly, unpretentious guy. We will miss him at the club.
Also we recently heard of the passing of former player Sylvia Persico, who played at the Bridge Studio up until a few years ago. She was well known for her sense of humor and outrageously large rings she wore on her fingers. She wintered in San Miguel with her husband Joseph Persico, a writer of biographies and history.
Please keep in mind that some of our players have allergies to perfumes and other frangrances so lets not wear any to our games. In our small confines, there's no where to go!♥
