Going to Regina

The Canadian team trials are starting in Regina Saskatchewan on Saturday.  The Women start their play on Sunday.  I have my airplane ticket and Francine and I will be on the same plane heading Westward Saturday.

It has not been that long since Francine and I decided to give our partnership a shot (well a reshot really because we played together quite successfully five years ago in Estoril.)

Playing with Francine and especially watching her play dummy on BBO has reminded me of what a fine card player she really is.  We defend well together too.  Once in a while we get it wrong.  We did on a deal a couple of days ago.  Later we both wrote each other an email where we each took the blame.  That was kind of funny.

The hand started with Francine making a terrific play of ducking her offside king on the opening lead and giving declarer a chance to go down.  Later we both had choices to make and either of us could defeat the hand.  The choices weren’t easy and we both got them wrong.  So you see that is why we both blamed ourselves.

Playing together is not always easy but it is always rewarding.  I wish we had at least another year to prepare.  Anyway as Francine always says we will go and have some fun.  We will be on a very fine team playing with Rhoda Habert and Sylvia Summers Cayley.  The competition will be challenging.  I know I will make mistakes.  But I am looking forward to competing.

And to all the other partnerships and teams headed to the center of Canada … let’s go and have some fun.

Hello Regina!

I don’t know if I will blog or not.  Somehow I will write a blog or two.  We will see.

Agreed; that looks like Ottawa!

Good luck.

It came from a Regina website. I think it is supposed to be the city center.

Good Luck and see you there.

This is definitely not Regina. I live in Regina. I believe this is Ottawa
