Madison is home to Wisconsin's capital, and also to the crown jewel of its university system. It's also where the Madison Bridge Club can be found. Within the Madison Bridge Club are a number of games, one of which is Jack's Bridge.
Sharon and Roger had a busy schedule in Madison. Friday morning, they visited a 9AM game that includes a lesson and chat bridge, with a 299er game every other Friday. At noon, Diane Vaughn runs a game at the Fitchburg Community Center. Sharon and Roger missed Diane; Bob Esser subbed for her. The 10AM game is directed by Duane Steinhauer.
At each game, Sharon gave a few introductory remarks, then held brief listening sessions. At the 299er discussion, Sharon sat next to Nancy Young. Nancy was about to play her first game of duplicate, and was quite excited! Afterwards - even moreso. Nancy came in third in her flight and won .24 masterpoints!
Sharon posed with Duane, Glenna Shannahan and Vic Johnson. Duane is a key administrator and director at the club. Glenna also directs, and Vic has helped Glenna in building the 299er game from nothing to 9 tables in the last 2 years.
