The TBBC held our monthly Board of Directors meeting last week. We unanimously selected JOHN RAINS as our APRIL MEMBER OF THE MONTH. I think everyone is in agreement that John is an incredible asset to our club. John is a practicing attorney and a longtime member of TBBC. He is the ultimate gentleman and a pleasure to play with at the table. John has been very generous to our club in numerous ways: Mentoring newer players, graciously playing with visitors to our club, and lending his expertise to the BOD when we have reached out to him. Again, Congratulations John!!!

We had delicious snacks, a lesson by Larry at 12:00 noon prior to the game, and a relaxed and friendly game of good bridge. Special shout out to ANN BARCLAY and JAN TUMBLESON for bringing the dessert and snacks this week. Even if you do not have a partner feel free to come as we guarantee you will play.
On behalf of the Board of Directors we wish you a wonderful week and hope to see you at the club. Good luck to those traveling to BOCA RATON for the regional tournament!!
