The Los Alamos game on Thursday night is directed by Jerry Fleming. They had 14 tables including two tables of ‘home-style’ bridge. There were players from Santa Fe and Taos in addition to those from Los Alamos and the surrounding suburbs. I played with John Ruminer, a retiree from the Lab. We had a nice game, although this is one tough field. I can’t remember the last time a 57% finished 7th in a field of 12. This is the home of the labs where they developed ‘the bomb’ that ended World War II. It is a beautiful area atop several Mesas, with canyons and mountains everywhere one looks. I stayed with Jerry and Marion and had a great time for two days.
