Winning a reverse tournament at the live Oregon gathering with Nuckmaster as a partner. The prize was a beautiful necklace our very own Silverladyaz made.

What is the funniest thing that has happened to you since joining Eliters?

Most pinoy players know that Dr. Sally and I love reverse. I was her partner one time and it was my turn to bid. Instead of passing I bid 58, which meant dbl aces. She just laughed at me and said gg.

Once when I was a lot younger, my brother was getting married in another town. Our car was parallel parked on the street in front of the house. My Dad was directing me out so my brother could have the car. Instead of reverse I hit forward and put two headlights right into two taillights and we were late for the wedding.
