If you're pondering who might have been the top masterpoint winner at any Minnesota tournament, guessing John Koch often will give you the correct answer. So it was over Labor Day weekend. John earner 23.72 masterpoints; about a point and a half behind was Joseph Koester. Quite impressive was third place; Sandy Nelson has less experience than many of our competitors, yet she was the only other player to earn over 20 masterpoints for the tourney! Well done, John, Joseph and Sandy, plus the other players who placed high in a number of events. The full list of results is here.
Always wonderful to see people having a great time at the bridge table....
Or - after the game has ended!
As always, our thanks to our hosts, Teri & Chip Blu, great director, Brian Weikle, and the omnipresent player, director and all around wizard at the TCBC, TGLO (The Great Larry Oakey!)
Many thanks to all who came, fought, contributed and volunteered! Hope you had a wonderful time!
