    Anderson Bridge Club 50th Anniversary celebration June 10, 2015
    Photos and Results - 17.5 Tables celebrated in style!


    The 2015 Flying Pig Regional ended on a successful note Sunday June 7.  Unit 124 hosted the event at the Sharonville Convention Center supported by a host of volunteers.  The tournament saw 1144 tables across 7 days of competition.  21 top players from the US and Poland joined the field of over 710 players.  The inaugural ProAm Pairs Grass Roots Fund Pairs Content kicked off the competition.  Julian Kurtzman and Gloria Over won the inaugural ProAm Pairs Grass Roots Charity Game with a 62.95% by the slimmest of margins over John Taylor and Robert Fisk (69.86%) besting players at 34 tables.  Both Julian and John are area Youth Players - well done indeed!    Pro Am Pairs were drawn by lot from two pools: 5-299 MPs and LMs just prior to game time!  

    Thanks goes to the Tournament Committee chaired by AJ Stephani: Nancy Luetge and Margaret Young (Pro Am Game coordination and planning), Susan Wisner  (Treasurer), Mike Lipp (Prize Desk), Joyce Tedrick and many Unit volunteers (Hospitality), Lorna Davis and Bob Fisk (Partnerships), Barb Levinson and Jane Duncan (Equipment & Supplies), Steve Moese (Communications), our Caddies, and the many Unit Volunteers who helped set up and tear down the tables, bidding boxes and banners.  Thank you all for your help in making this year's Flying Pig a SUCCESS.
