Several Victoria area players went down to San Diego to try their luck in the NABC. Here, to the best of my knowledge, are their results. Please let me know (by emailing the webmaster) if I have missed any.
Gerry McCully and Rhonda Foster had a 60.26% game in the second final session of the Senior Mixed Pairs to win the event by less than a board (55 top). The pair garnered 80 platinum MPs. With the win, McCully became a Grand Life Master.
Winners of the Senior Mixed Pairs:
Rhonda Foster and Gerry McCully
Duncan Smith and Karen Turner received 16 platinum points in the same event.
In the NABC+ Mixed Swiss Teams, Karen Turner, Barbara Stewart, Michael Roche and Duncan Smith scored 25 platinums.
Jim Galand, playing with Calgarian Doran Flock won the Fast Open Pairs.
Playing in various knockouts, Holly Boudreau, Esther Wiebe, Keith Hibbert and JP Weber obtained 40.4 points, mainly gold. Their San Diego adventure is chronicled in a separate post, “Innocents Abroad“.
