On Saturday May 2, SiVY Bridge held its first ever virtual Pizza Party, aka No Pizza Party. 5.5 tables of youth players participated in the duplicate tournaments and 2 players learned about bidding and play at a casual teaching table. We had one player from the East Coast, one from Chicago, several from San Jose/South Bay, and eight from Center for Bridge Education in San Francisco. It was great to "see" so many parts of the Bay Area (and the country!) represented.

$10 Subway Gift cards were awarded to winners: N/S Chloe and Nancy, and E/W (tied) Jamin and Daniel, Eric and Anthony. Congratulations! Also winning gift cards through random drawing were Aldwyn and Kyle. Full results here.

Participants were also invited to attend future SiVY Bridge Online events, including our popular Casual Fridays. These are scheduled May 15, 22, and 29 from 3:15-5:15 p.m.

Many thanks to Will Watson for directing the game, to Brent and Frank for filling in so there was no half table, to Richard and Deborah from CBE for helping get so many of their players to attend, to Randy for hosting the casual play, and to
