The last six weeks have been exceptionally hectic, even by Great American Bridge Tour standards, as I have been on four 3000 km roadtrips, played in five tournaments, fought a major flood and the welcomed a new Team Dog after suffering the loss of our beloved Black Russian Terrier and service animal, Sentinel Anna.
She is also 1/20th of the size of Anna.
We travel the 1800 km to the Oregon Coast, competing in the same location that explorers Lewis and Clark found themselves when the Corps of Discovery reached the Pacific Ocean. The Seaside, Oregon resort community provides the team the opportunity to rent a house, and for me to play in the kitchen as Executive Chef for the seven days we will live here.
There are many strong players in the Northwest, in fact the late Paul Soloway lived in the Seattle area. In the company of a vast number of accomplished bridge athletes, we will be at home, win or lose, for in order to excel, a team needs to take on the best.
