Tournament chair Nancy Colbert Says:
In mulling it over I guess you could say that this tournament is run in a manner similar to our bridge club. There’s an administrative head and numerous deputies with their own responsibilities acting mostly independently. Everything gets done beautifully and without much fuss.
“Many hands make light work” were the words atop the Snack sign up sheets. Very apropos.
We had 52 volunteers. Kind of like a deck of cards …..Lots of Aces supported by Kings, Queens and Jacks. And they all deserve to be honored.
The snack table lived up to its stellar reputation because of the wonderful contributions by so many of our members.

Petoskey Sectional 2017: Faces at the Tables
Duplicate bridge, even at a tournament, may be serious stuff, but that doesn't mean players can't enjoy themselves.
Debbie Sears (top right) celebrated her birthday in the midst of play. Others studied cards and convention sheets. And through it all, we remained competitive but polite and welcoming.
How Good Was the Food?
There Were Lessons to Be Learned Every Day
Who says you can't learn anything at a tournament? Voluteers Mike Sears and Robert Houtrow conducted mini-lessons before the days play began. The sessions were well attended and much enjoyed. Thank you, Bob and Mike
