Club #80: Duke City Bridge Club in Albuquerque, NM

September 2

There is nothing like being in the Wild West and meeting ‘Billy the kid’. Billy Trabaudo is a 19 year old sophomore at the University of New Mexico and is a highly regarded young player. We played and had a great time and a lousy score (probably because we didn’t play particularly well). But it was enjoyable to play with one of our 1100 members under the age of 26. Billy has flare without fear. I guess too many of the opponents were related to Pat Garrett. Felicity Moore is a very active club manager, teaching and directing in addition to managing this very large club in Albuquerque. This is the third club in last five that I have been to, where the club is in a building that they own. My estimate is that less than 5% of full time clubs play in a building that they own.
