RICHMOND TEAM FINISHES IN TOP EIGHT AT NATIONALS
The Richmond team of Marc Warner, Mark Rosenbloom, Franklin Price, and Bob Pustilnik advanced to the quarterfinals of the Flight A ( 0-6000) Grand National Team competition in Atlanta.
Representing District 6, the team made it through the grueling, eight match swiss qualifying round, finishing 13th to advance to the knockout round of 16. After winning their first match, they moved on to the field of eight where they lost to the second seeded team from Ontario. Way to go, guys!

Next week many clubs in the Richmond area will be holding fundraising games for the Alzheimers Foundation. Each club is allowed one game during the week to hold the official Longest Day game. All clubs are also allowed to hold charity games for the Foundation throughout the week. The games will charge an extra dollar and will pay more masterpoints. The following clubs will hold at least one game next week for the the Alzheimers Foundation:
Friendly Bridge: Sunday, June 17
Bridge Center: Tuesday, June 19 (AM)
Paul’s Game: Thursday, June 21
More clubs will probably join in the effort to raise funds (and more masterpoints for you).
