This February, of course, we did not have local games during the Regional at the end of the month, but the six games we did have were well attended with an average of 15 tables. As for the Regional, there were 10365.27 master points earned by 937 players, with a total of 1636 tables attending. Our members’ success at the Regional included: the team of Dick Quigg, Ann Kuperberg, Barbara and Edward Haugland who won the Sabino Canyon Knockouts, Bracket 4 (nine tables); Sara Doonan/Leo Pigaty who won B Flight of the Friday Daylight Pairs (23 tables); Richard Quigg paired up with Del Rieschick to win the B Flight of the Saturday Daylight Pairs (18 tables); Adair Karlin and Joan Merrill put together the winning team for Adobe Knockout Teams, Bracket 1, while Diana McGinn’s team won Bracket 3 and Ann Kuperberg’s team won Bracket 4 (each bracket had 12 tables). Ann’s team also won the 0-2000 bracket 5 of the Sunday Swiss Teams (seven tables). The most points awarded to anyone were 119.6 (no one I recognized, but it is worth mentioning that Adair Karlin and Joan Merrill racked up almost 51 points each!) Nicely done everybody.
