This Labor Day weekend, throngs of players from Minnesota and beyond have been enjoying the Labor Day Sectional at the Twin City Bridge Center. Part of the reason we see so many attending and enjoying is due to the labors of the lady above - TCBC owner and superb bridge teacher, Teri Blu.
Teri has earned the title of Teacher of the Year for 2018 in our District 14. Teri surely is a person most worthy of this honor!
Through her directing work, her tutoring with individuals as bridge partners, and from her many classes over the years at the TCBC, Teri has trained so many that are enjoying our game today. Her "chat bridge" is a marvelous concept that allows newer players to get their "sea legs" at bridge, through talking immediately about the game. What works; what doesn't - what does this bid mean and how do you learn to communicate with your partner? Teri explains it all, in a kind and gentle manner that makes the bridge world a friendly, not too fierce place.
One of the best ways to acknowledge Teri's achievement is to head on over to the TCBC tomorrow and Monday! We're only halfway through the Labor Day Sectional! Teri would love to see you - and - you will love competing ... and perhaps seeing your name up in lights!
Teri - thanks for all you do and for earning this meaningful award!
