President's Message, May 25, 2024

Thank you to all who made March's Saint Patrick's Weekend Sectional in Orange a great success. We had a great turnout and everyone had fun. If you haven't already done so, please check out the tournament report and photo gallery here. We had it all - players making Life Master, multiple players playing their first tournament, and even a player playing his first face-to-face bridge, with all of them scoring nice finishes! Congratulations to John Lloyd, who earned the 2024 Barb Shaw Trophy award for players with fewer than 750 masterpoints, and to Rich DeMartino, who took home the honors for top masterpoint winner overall.

 

In Orange, we recognized many of the winners of our Unit Ace of Clubs and Mini McKenney awards for 2023. Congratulations to all of the winners!  Things are heating up for our 2024 Ace of Clubs and Mini McKenney races as well as for our new Non-Life Master of the Year and Newcomer of the Year awards.

 

I will be a little scarce over the next two months as I recover from upcoming ankle surgery, but I am already getting excited about our next Sectional, August 9-11 in Stamford. We're planning for a great tournament and I can't wait to see all of you there!

 

Until then, I'll have to enjoy the vicarious thrills of hearing about your adventures at Connecticut's great clubs, at the upcoming Regional in Nashua and in Toronto.  Happy bridge to all!

 

All the best,

Bill Segraves
