It's one of those moments you'll always remember. Where were you when you made it to Life Master? And how did you feel? It's a great moment for any bridge player -- the first big milestone among what will hopefully be many to follow.
I'm closing in on Silver now, but I'll never forget how great it felt to collect my 300th point and get that gold card in the mail. It's been so much fun for me today to go through that emotion all over again with my good friend Gail. She and I traveled together to Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, for a regional this week, and this morning, we won our match to advance to round 3 of the morning KO, earning just shy of 10 gold points. Gail was only .2 gold points shy of the milestone, so that win was more than good enough to put her over the top. I was so pleased to be on that team and honored to be the one to deliver the news to her (she was sitting out the second half, so she wasn't present for the comparison).
