Sun Lakes Duplicate Bridge Novice and Intermediate

Karin Hansen

April was a great month for the duplicate bridge players at Sun Lakes, and some awesome scores were recorded both at club games and at the I/N regional tournament held in Scottsdale. In club play, the top score for the 99er game was on Thursday, April 25, when Mercedes Johnson and Dale Ehrbright had a game of 72.23%. Congratulations on a top game! In the 499er game, the top score was on April 23 when Margaret Tam and Frank Bost had a 70.79% game. Many of our novice and intermediate players participated in the I/N regional tournament held in Scottsdale April 26-28. This tournament was an opportunity to score some coveted gold points while playing only against other non-life masters. Hats off to all of those who chose to challenge themselves with some tough pair games and some team events as well. On Friday, April 26, Harvey Lowe and Cheryl Verlander had a high finish in Gold Rush Pairs. On Saturday, April 27, in the morning session of pairs play, Debbie Berry and Hugh Verlander finished third, and Kay Kennedy and Yogi Patel finished fourth. In the afternoon session, Yogi Patel and Bob Belton finished in first place. Sunday, April 28, was an all-day session of team play with four players per team. The winning team had some players from the Sun Lakes Bridge Club: Kim Bauer, Betty Tuttle, Jacque Tooley and Renee Prendergast. Second place was also represented by Sun Lakes players: Betty Santa, William Reisenbuchler, Frank Bost and Patricia Liddle. Congratulations to these and all the others who enjoyed themselves at the tournament. Club play continues during June.

The Thursday morning game starts at 8:15 a.m. and is open for all players with less than 100 master points. Contact Anne Newman at [email protected] for information and for any questions you might have. Games for players with less than 500 points are on Tuesday and Thursday afternoon at 1:30 p.m. All games are held at Risen Savior Lutheran Church on Alma School Road, just South of Chandler Heights Road.

Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to game time!

If you are in need of a partner for any Open Games, please contact the Players’ Pairs Assistants Eileen Utter, Kay Kennedy and Carol Warner at [email protected] Please try the email first if you have access to a computer. Fees for the game are $6.00/person if you are a member of the club or $7.00/person if not a club member.

Please welcome all new players to the table. There are many inexperienced players who try to play with the advanced players and may feel uncomfortable. If you see someone that you do not recognize, please introduce both yourself and your partner. If time permits, you may want to interact with them, but do not slow down the game. New players are the key to keeping our club viable.
