Mike Yuen — Mike talks about bridge

Michael goes to Washington

The Summer North American Bridge Championships is in Washington DC from the 23rd July to the 2nd August this year. Now that Obama is in The White House, I decided to make the trip and check out his new digs.

The host hotel Marriott Wardman Park  is a delightful hotel with a beautiful garden. The local organizing committee have done a wonderful job, from the useful registration gift – an umbrella just in time for a frequent summer shower, to the nightly entertainments, and as well to the hilarious musical performance by The Capitol Steps to the Hollywood Square quiz show, just to name a few. There is also a great variety of food being served after the evening games.

After playing two days in the highly competitive Life Master Pairs with my friend Walter Fontaine and missing the cut to the final day, I needed some recreation and relaxation. So I went downtown with Kiz, Susan, Angela and Maurice, hoping to catch a glimpse of The Man.

When I knocked on the door, there was nobody home at The White House. The Man has left the building and gone to Camp David for the weekend.
