We were all saddened today to hear of the death of Nadine Wood. Nadine has been a USBF member and supporter since our formation. She was a member of the Women's International Team Trials Committee when it was first formed by ACBL and continued to be an active and valued member of the Committee, now a USBF committee, through the Toronto meeting. She was always there to help, whether that meant finding space for the Women's and Senior Team Trials at MABC Regionals, serving as a wonderful hostess at those same Trials, working tirelessly at seeding for NABC events, and on and on. She will be sorely missed!

At the Detroit Women's and Senior Team Trials this year, USBF held a party to honor and thank Nadine for all of her hard work over the years. We did not know this would be the last time we would see Nadine at the Trials, but wanted to take the opportunity of having the two Trials together to thank Nadine. Unfortunately, we haven't been able to get very many pictures from that evening, but here are a few, thanks to Sandy Arlinghaus & Suzi Subeck:
