Today was Patriots Day in Massachusetts and the day of the Boston Marathon. Housed in the same facility for 50 years, I visited the Westwood DBC for stop number two on my tour.
They held a marathon too, playing three sessions: 24, 20, and 7 tables. That’s 51 tables of bridge! Former ACBL CEO, Roy Green, and I were partners, but it was Joyce Pearson who won the marathon bridge match, which allowed players to take their best two out of three scores.
Westwood has duplicated boards, electronic scoring, and a Bridge Webs presentation of their results on their website. Very impressive! It was an enjoyable evening spent at a great club, playing with a very interesting man.
Check back often for travel entries by Craig as he continues his bridge odyssey.
