Local Stars Shine at New Orleans National!

Several of our unit members traveled to Mardi Gras land and did spectacularly well at that tournament. 

Irva and Brian finished 1st in the Tues-Wed KO 4, finished 1st in the Second Sunday Swiss CD, and finished first in two pairs games!

The all-Corvallis team of Beckie, Karen, Eileen and Mary Alice finished 2nd in the Tues-Wed KO 6. 

Masterpoints received by our local experts were:

71.92 Irva Neyhart, Corvallis OR
71.92 Brian Breckenridge, Corvallis OR
13.80 Mary Alice Seville, Corvallis OR
13.80 Eileen Milligan, Corvallis OR
13.26 Karen Nelson, Corvallis OR
13.26 Becky McKenzie, Corvallis OR

Complete results of that tournament can be found here.

By the way, if you finished first in the Norman Kay Platinum Pairs, you would have received 200.00 masterpoints.

 

WE HAVE CAKE!


And cookies! And bagels and chips and candy and all manner of assorted goodies randomly appearing on our tables in Albany and Corvallis!  I don’t want to embarrass anyone by mentioning any names but Delores makes a Most Excellent pistachio with walnut cake!  And the lemon cherry cheesecake didn’t even make it to the end of the session!

Thanks to all the wonderful cooks who bring us these delights.

Complex numbers are all fun and games until someone loses an i.

Topologists can’t tell a coffee cup from a doughnut.

When Noah sends his animals to go forth and multiply, a pair of snakes replies “We can’t multiply, we’re adders.” so Noah builds them a log table.

A physicist, a biologist and a mathematician are sitting in a street café watching people entering and leaving the house on the other side of the street. First they see two people entering the house. Time passes. After a while they notice three people leaving the house. The physicist says, “The measurement wasn’t accurate.” The biologist says, “They must have reproduced.” The mathematician says, “If one more person enters the house then it will be empty.”
