At the beginning of every month District 25's Director, Rich DeMartino has sent out congratulatory e-mails to New England bridge players who have advanced in rank during the previous month. Some of them respond, and Rich selects a few of the most interesting ones to be posted on NEBridge.org. Below is a memorable one from December of 2015.
I have been playing bridge about once every other week for 3 years. I am very fortunate to have a life Master, Paul Carrier, as a teacher. The rest of the bridge club has been very supportive and has helped me learn and grow. Now I try to play every week with other partners. It's been a good run.
