The Bridge Center of Austin is a really good club. A good club takes a lot of people working together to make it great. This club is led by Laura Delfeld who teaches, directs, and probably washes the dishes. Flora Pettit was in charge of hospitality and she put out a great lunch. 38 tables showed up to play and Laura and Mark McAllister did a great job of directing. I played with Jack Lacy, who is another instructor at the club and a fine player. Austin happened to be one of the cities where I was there for two nights and one day. I did laundry in the morning and then met many from the club for dinner at County Line on the Lake. I showed up an hour early because I lost track of what time zone I was in, even though I had been in the same time zone for two weeks. I went out to the lake and watched the turtles go to their dock and play on their miniature slide and miniature diving board. We had great barbeque and it was a great day.
