Unit 201 -
Life Master Party for Richard and Marianna Carpenter
November 11, 2017

Thanks to Linda Briggs for many of the photos!
Richard and Marianna Carpenter

 After their marriage some 42 years ago, Marianna insisted that Richard learn to play party bridge.  Eventually they transitioned to duplicate bridge, playing at Rayburn, in Oregon, and in Beaumont (mainly on Sunday afternoons).  With the encouragement of many, including Nancy Smalley, Dr. Bharathi, and Connor Smith, they began "playing up" and accumulating masterpoints.  Most of their gold was earned in Gold Rush Pairs at regional tournaments; however, they earned their 25th Gold Point in a KO at the Tyler Tournament of Roses in 2017 with Karen Jennings and Hellen Revelle.

Congratulations, Richard and Marianna!
