Recently, I became aware of some youth players in Minnesota who wished to attend the second annual Youth National Bridge Competition in Washington D.C. this July. Apparently they need assistance to participate, but nothing is in place to provide funds.
I decided that perhaps our MN Bridge Blog could be a forum for Minnesotans to contemplate and discuss ways in which we could offer more support for our fledgling young competitors. Donations? Scholarships? Charity games with proceeds going toward our young players?
Don't forget - last year, our own Jake Olson of Blaine won the first ever Youth National event! Let's do what we can to promote our future!
