Volunteer of the Year
2010 - Carl Sharp
Few volunteers have logged as many hours as Carl Sharp, whose specialty is the partnership desk at Chicago-area tournaments. He started helping out in 1971 and has been going strong since then, serving on the boards of Unit 123 and District 13. He has worked in many areas but he is known as Mr. Tournament Partnership Chairman. “I’ve done everything at bridge tournaments,” he says, “but I really like the partnership desk. I enjoy helping people find a suitable partner.” Sharp, a Gold Life Master, is a member of the National Goodwill Committee.
