John Markey of Raleigh Bridge Club was the first to invite me to come to a club. They had a Cinco de Mayo party complete with margaritas. Club President, Margaret Webb, presented recognition awards to all the club members who achieved rank advancements, with a special celebration of the three new Life Masters. A rather unique setting for a bridge club, the Royal Banquet Center had 35 tables. I played with John Marriott and we won our section by 1/2 point which concluded two days and four clubs in Raleigh/Durham. It is a great area for bridge with a lot of people working together to make it better. Special thanks to Bruce Reeve for helping with arrangements.
