13 teams gathered for the Sunday STaC “8 is Enough” Swiss Game. After a tutorial on Swiss Game strategy and scoring from Phil Kaiser, players enjoyed pizza and salad before beginning the game. There were enough teams to make up two sections. In Section A, top honors went to the team of Norma Jean Shaw, Maria Black, Mickey Rosenzweig and John Whittlesey. In Section B, the top winners were Mimi Draves, Jill Bellowe, Jody Shapiro and Perry Shapiro. A fun afternoon was had by all!


2016 Sectional- August 12-14

Our August 12-14 Santa Barbara Sectional welcomed players from throughout California. They came from nearby communities, and from Los Angeles, Fresno, Bakersfield and Santa Cruz.  There were 70 tables of Open players on Friday and Saturday and 60 tables of 499ers on Friday and Saturday. The Sunday Swiss game at the club had 17 tables for the all-day event.  All three days ran smoothly thanks to our director in charge, Scott Campbell, and the great planning and organization of tournament chair, Annetta Patrick.

Once again our club scored with some of the best food on the circuit. Thanks go to Cheryl Miller, assisted by Ann Grassi, and all the members who baked and assembled delicious nibbles.

It was a team effort and thanks also go to: Kathy Drake, tournament assistant; Celia Foss, partnership chair; Bob and Celia Foss, fill-in pair; Set-up crew Phil Kaiser, Jim Edmondson and Ken Muller; Clean-up crew Rick Panter, Dennis Berg, Chuck Patrick, Claude Case, Phil Kaiser and Jim Edmondson and Sunday’s very efficient caddies, Nancy Spelke and Annetta Patrick.

Thank you, Annetta, for a job well done!!!
