Unit 201 -
Life Master Party for John Kacher
December 3, 2016


Honoree John with wife, Donna

When John Kacher began playing bridge in Beaumont six years ago, he had about 100 MPs.  The first person who befriended him at the bridge studio was Jack Evans.  Jack introduced John to Tim Stelly, and a long-lasting partnership was formed.  John thanked Tim for being his partner and for recruiting good teams.  At the Gusher Regional in 2015, John, Tim, and Bob and Carol McGill won a KO which resulted in 15.91 GOLD points, putting John well on his way to the 50 gold points needed.  Flo Gillispie was John's partner at the 61st Beaumont Spindletop Sectional in March 2016 when he earned his last required SILVER and his 500th masterpoint to earn Life Master rank.

Twelve-and-one-half tables honored John on a very stormy day and enjoyed a catered lunch from Jo Jo's Bistro in Beaumont. 

Congratulations, John!
