Both sessions start at 11:30 a.m., again at the Senior Center in Austin. Players come from Blue Earth, Mason City, Rose Creek, Albert Lea, and Austin. Several players come early and eat lunch before the game starts.

While browsing through the newspapers lately, we ran across an article written by Tim Penny that ran in the Albert Lea Tribune on Dec. 24, 2022. On our ‘over the table talk’ I mentioned this article and a friend piped up: “I liked that guy, first Democrat I ever voted for.” It is true, this young man has built up a following. His article had to do with his leadership of Southern Minnesota Initiative Foundation which has to do with early childhood, entrepreneurship  and community vitality combined with partnerships within the state and region with whom to corroborate and help in making a difference.

It is like Duplicate Bridge — it’s all about partnership.
