Wanda Slawinski who placed 2nd in B section at our club sent this email: I want to thank the club for having the World Wide bridge day. I understand that there were only 16 clubs in Canada that participated. I am also guessing that there may have been a few phone calls and arrangements for players on stand by to ensure that we had enough players. I appreciate the effort that is expended for such an event and I consider myself fortunate to have the opportunity to play. IT is such fun to find one’s name in the list, and also to see Kingston names high on the list.
The name tag will include your name and Kingston Duplicate Bridge Club and our logo. They can be purchased through the club, Ruth Rees or directly through Specialty Trophies for $10.75.
