Bruce Blakely had been hosting us the last two nights. Today Bruce drove us over to Oakland to play in a community center where they had about 25 tables. Like many morning games, they work in a break for food and there was an enormous strawberry shortcake. The game was directed by Betty Kael who did a very good job considering there were two sections and she was playing to boot. I played with Tom Pajak who gave some assistance to Betty with technical problems during the game. Tom was very enjoyable to play with. We had some bad luck and scored OK, but nothing to write home about. The club held a question and answer session with the members and myself, and I really enjoyed giving answers and speaking to everyone. We left immediately after the game to start the long drive to Eureka.
