CONGRATULATIONS & KUDOS - The Can-At committee was spectacular and the tournament was a huge success.  I hope you all had a chance to play at least ONE game.  Special Kudos to Jennifer Henderson and Michael Cobden - those were the best Bridge Bulletins I have ever seen at a Can-At -- WELL done.  And congratulations to all the players, I see we have a couple of NEW life Masters and some that are now closer to their goal.  "T-shirt Tuesday" with CAKE to celebrate.  Wear your Can-At T-shirt.
