I was right—it got hot. But not until the very end of May. Maybe climate change is causing Arizona, and specifically Tucson, to become better than before. Nice thought. There are no big tournaments coming up in July or August, so everybody come to our game and keep your wits sharp. We had nine games in May averaging a bit more than 12 tables. The Flight Winners throughout May were the following:

A Flight: Joan Merrill/Barbara Rosenthal; Eric Vonderheid/John Spaet (2); JoAnn Aiken/Darlene Barnstad (2); Sheila/Jeff Lesser (73.27%!); Joy Rieckers/Terry Coe; Sharon Wyles/John Wolfe; Adair Karlin/Joan Merrill (71.3%!); Betty Meyer/Bob Murray (3); Karen Swanberg/Aaron Carnes; Arlene/John Mayfield (3) (also first overall in the May 22 Grass Roots Fund); Kay/Darwin Afdahl (also first overall in May 26 Grass Roots Fund) and Al Spaet/Phil Jones

B Flight: Joan Merrill/Adair Karlin; Fay Kallina/Ann Kuperberg; Virginia Brier/Eric Shoberg; Betty Meyer/Bob Murray; Sarah Baumann/Stephen Pozez; Vicki Hansen/Marian Rogge; Dean Frost/Vicki Hansen; Ann Kuperberg/Richard Quigg (also overall in B Flight on May 26) and Dean Frost/Sue Hagerty
