Kasle In, Playoffs Continue
The team captained by Gaylor Kasle earned a trip to Shanghai, China, later this year with a 129-102 win over the Rose Meltzer squad in the U.S. Senior Bridge Championship in North Bethesda MD. The victory gives the team the No. 1 U.S. spot in the Senior Bowl in Shanghai.
Kasle's teammates are Russ Arnold, Dan Gerstman, John Sutherlin, Bobby Wolff and Dan Morse. Meltzer is playing with Grant Baze, Roger Bates, Alan Sontag, Bart Bramley and Lew Stansby.
The Meltzer team will have another shot at a berth in the Senior Bowl. The squad has the day off Friday while teams captained by Farid Assemi and Carolyn Lynch vie for the right to play Meltzer for the second U.S. spot in the Senior Bowl.
Assemi is playing with Edward Wojewoda, Gene Freed and James Tritt. Lynch's teammates are Dennis Dawson, David Berkowitz, Mark Lair, John Schermer and Neil Chambers. The tournament concludes this weekend.
