Unit 201 -
GOLD Life Master Party for Arline Meyers
April 1, 2017

Thanks to Linda Briggs and Dr. Bharathi for many of the photos!
Arline Meyers, Honoree

 Arline Meyers, U201's newest GOLD Life Master earned every one of her 2,500 masterpoints in Beaumont!  She played in Beaumont Gusher Regional Tournaments to get her gold points, in Beaumont Sectionals to get her silver points, and in Beaumont Bridge Studio games to get black points.  What an accomplishment right in her hometown!

Arline was flanked by her beautiful family and entertained by a host of hosts/hostesses headed by Joan Hataway.  A fun time was had by all, most of whom were sporting their black and white.

Congratulations, Arline!

The Program
Joan Hataway presided over the event. Arline's daughter, Ellen, blessed our food and spoke of her family's pride in Arline's accomplishment. Arline claimed she asked many to host the event so she could count on a large turn-out!
Carolyn Worsham presented Arline with an ACBL GOLD LIFE MASTER pin. A pig with wings hovered over Arline's head (?). Anna Smith and Don Moss sang original words to Clementine in honor of Arline.
Some of the things hosts/hostesses noted that Arline will only do "when pigs fly" -- bid more conservatively, wear short sleeves, quit collecting toys at Christmas, cook a gourmet meal, quit bidding slams, say no to Betty's eggnog, say no to chocolate, and not have any chocolate ice cream or chocolate cookies at her house. 

Joan closed by saying that Arline would be loved by many "until pigs fly."

  Enjoying the Day  
The Director
Director Ed Rasmussen directed the 19-table game.
