THANK YOU. Last night, approximately 40 regular duplicate players volunteered their time to come to the Studio to play duplicate with my latest class of beginners to show them that duplicate players are not so intimidating and that duplicate bridge can actually be fun. The new players were delighted with their experience.

I am hoping that a greater percentage of these novices make the decision to keep playing duplicate because of their positive experience last night than my past classes. I hope they will join the ACBL and strengthen our Unit. Time will tell but I don’t think last night could have gone any better. Almost every one of them told me how much they enjoyed meeting the experienced players and talking to them and how much they learned.

So, THANK YOU to the following players: ALAN SPOHN, MAGGIE FRICK, CARROLL FROGGE, RONALD SMITH, TRICE MASSEY, BARBARA HICKS, MARY SCHNEIDER, BETTY CONLAN, CARL SHIPLEY, DIXIE WANTOCH, CAROL FRANA, JEANIE BROWN, WILLIAM HOGE, JIM DINGWERTH, DOROTHY JOHNSON, SUSAN SWANSON DAVID AND ELIZABETH RHEA, KATHLEEN AND TONY GIORDANO, SHAWN TATE, VICTORIA MUIR, PATTI WHITAKER, JEAN SLOAN, WAYNE COULTER, RICHARD JONES, JIM AND SUSAN URICH, BEVERLY COOK, HERB ROSEN, JACK SPEAR, ROBERT WEAVER, DON STACK, GEOFF FRIEDMAN, JEANNE KYTE, KAY JAYARAM.

These are the people who cared enough about the future of bridge in Kansas City to give up their Monday evening and come out to give the novices a very positive experience for their first duplicate game. Thank you again. Your time was very much appreciated.
