99 Years Old - Time for a Party

By Gay Roach

The Nacogdoches (TX) Duplicate Bridge Club recently held a 99th birthday party for Ralph Erickson. Ralph is a retired nuclear engineer who was in charge of building the last two nuclear energy plants in the U.S. He usually plays twice a week with the club and still drives his car to the games. Ralph has more than 750 masterpoints. He is an inspiration to us all.
