Team standings at the end of day 1:
Mukmuk - 721
Sumi - 391
Miga - 313
Quatchi - 535

Most masterpoints today go to Alan McMillan (partnered with Jill) 228 points for the Mukmuk team. 

Spirit points were a little closer. The Cruden's pulled out all their stops with a wonderful display for the Red Mukmuk team scoring 100 bonus points --- BUT Brian Ferguson in the Monday evening class earned the Miga (yellow team) 100 extra points as well with the pan of squares each with a little torch on it (and they were delicious!!). The big hit were the YELLOW MIGA t-shirts, with the entire Bridge Bidding song on the back - way to go students. The evening bridge quizzes gave extra points to some teams - Leading with spirit points is Miga with 718, followed by Mukmuk with 628, not far behind are Quatchi with 560 and Sumi's 548.
