Riding The Bus
The Vero Beach (FL) Bridge Center sponsored the Strati Flighted Swiss Teams on the second Sunday of the Orlando NABC. The event was named after their club, so players from Vero Beach decided to go play. More than 60 signed up for the 78-mile trip, so Candy Griffey, the club’s bridge coordinator, arranged for a bus.
“So many players signed up, they wouldn’t fit on one bus,” said Griffey. “We needed two buses!”
Many of those who made the trip hadn’t played in Swiss teams before. “We offered lessons on the buses on IMP strategy,” says Griffey.
Some of the players are shown in the photos, and one of the buses can be seen in the background.
