The USBF team trials for both Seniors and Women are concurrently being run in Detroit. One Minnesotan - yours truly - began in the Seniors. As I am writing this from Minnetonka, I leave it up to you, gentle reader, to deduce what happened to my team.
On a much brighter note, two of our state's top players and one of our finest partnerships, Cindy Balderson and Carole Miner, are doing quite well in the Women's trials. Though right now Cindy and Carole are sitting out, their team finished second out of 8 in a 8 team round robin, and now is playing against the Westheimer team in the semi-final match. The girls' team (Joann Sprung, Janet Robertson, Cindy Bernstein and Sally Wheeler) are, for the moment, up by 11; 86 to 75.
Please join me in wishing our ladies well through this match, and for the rest of the week!
