Our Grande Dame is 102

By Eddie Hurt

Our grand lady here in Lake Havasu City AZ, Lucille "Bucky" Buckner, turned 102 years young on Oct.1. Age doesn't slow her down. Last January, Bucky and her favorite partner, Gladys Kost, finished second overall in an open pairs game in the Lake Havasu Sectional Tournament. Gladys is a mere 92.

Since reaching age 100, two years ago, Bucky has won 43 masterpoints.
