Intimate Breakfast with the Stars

by Peggy Kaplan

If you could have breakfast with but two bridge stars, who might they be? Perhaps one would be the player ranked #1 in the world longer than any other, with NABC titles stretching back from 1962 – and so many national and international wins that they are tough to count: Bob Hamman. The other might also be a world champion, tireless worker and generous benefactress to the game: Rose Meltzer.

Toronto’s Breakfast with the Stars was smaller than usual due to scheduling constraints. Yet those in attendance were treated to a fabulous buffet and equally marvelous stories from Bob and Rose. A bonus was a snappy visit from the always-quick Alan Sontag.

Debbie Hyatt and Ina helped greatly organizing the venue and aiding guests. Everyone agreed that Breakfast with the Stars is an exceptional venue for an inside and intimate visit with the greatest players around.

Stay tuned for details about Seattle’s upcoming breakfast!
