NABC Reports

Hawaii Fall 2018

Hawaii was a wonderful spot, beautiful weather, and a true vacation paradise. The attendance was very poor (6032 Tables) and those that missed this tournament missed a truly perfect vacation / bridge event. So much to do and eat! Poke' (POH-KAY) was on many menus and is spicy raw fish (Usually AHI) that is prepared in a multitude of ways. I tried it and it was better than I thought. Every fish dish I had was delicious, and the pineapple was as good as you think it was.

I was not the District Director yet in Hawaii but I served in the Board of Governors as First Alternate. So basically just one meeting and the rest of the mornings I got to visit Hawaii. I have to admit the tournament made me long for the 1 and 7:30 schedule, all morning to visit the area local to the tournament, Play a session of bridge and a nice 3 hour or more break to have dinner with friends, nap or walk, and back for the second session well rested and ready to go. With our 10 and 2:15 schedule it is socially a different experience.

I will have more complete reports when I start attending meetings.
