I played with my brother Phil who has really never played duplicate. We played Stayman and Blackwood, and on the second hand of the day we were the only pair to bid to a grand slam that had 15 tricks! Phil had no problem with bidding boxes, and only tried to touch cards on the dummy a couple of times. The game proceeded well until about the half way mark when everything just collapsed, and we finished at 46%. It still was great! The Santa Barbara club is in a stand alone building was recently been refurbished and the members are very proud of. The club has been renting this facility for 35 years! It was suggested to buy it back in 1975 but the owners decided to rent instead. What a mistake. The players were very nice and extremely nice to a new player.
