We have some very fine young players in our unit who managed to take both the Grand National Teams flight B and also
flight C spots last weekend. For the GNT B flight it was Nolan Chang, Jack Chang, Zheng Zhang, Om Chokrilawa,
Fred Upton, and Jim Perkins. For the C flight it was Sophia Chang and her partner Lucy Zhang teamed up with Alex Chan
and several other younger Junior players who won that spot. Also, Nolan will be flying to Italy right after the GNTs in
Washington D.C. to participate in the World Youth Teams that he qualified for in December. Congratulations to all
The San Marino Bridge Club will have two Championship games next week on Monday and Wednesday. These games award

partnerships will be randomly assigned at game time by Art Gulbrandsen. There is a signup sheet for rookies at the
Bridge Center. The more experienced players should see Peter Szecsi if they would like to play. (They play free.)
