About the Players
| I've been playing mostly internat'l and nat'l bridge with my women partners or my husband Paul who is taking a sabbatical from bridge for a while. I've been playing with Pam thru 4 NABCs but we have known each other from the days when we had a common partner Randi Montin. We were part of a group of young players that included Jill Myers, Kay Schulle, Shawn Quinn, Renee Mancuso and many other LA players (Jim Robison, Kerri Sanborn. Barry Crane, Hermine Baron)
I recently moved from Las Vegas to South Dakota and enjoy traveling, bowling, reading and cooking. In Fact I’ve just returned from Bungi Jumping in New Zealand (a must do for both the country and bungi). I hope to try sky diving and a visit to the Gallopagos Islands next.
