Unit 201 -
Life Master Party for Linda Briggs
January 9, 2016

Thanks to Patsy Pierce, Dr. Bharathi, and Linda's family for the photos!


Linda began playing duplicate bridge six years ago.  She earned her 50th gold point, achieving Life Master status, at the 2015 Beaumont Gusher Regional.  Linda thanked her family for support and thanked her partners who played with her in local games, numerous sectionals, and 13 regional tournaments in Texas, Louisiana, and Iowa.  She chose "Back to School" as the party theme to recognize that those who play duplicate bridge are always learning.

Linda envisioned a "yearbook" of school photos of bridge players but gave up on the idea.  She was surprised with a finished product.
