From Our President, Joe Martin


Saturday, in Boca Raton, Florida, one of our NW Regonal representatives, Peggy Matsuda (LPM) took the silver medal in the FPUSA National Women's Singles competition,
In yesterday's FPUSA National Mixed Triples, the other two players from the NW region Joe Cortright, and Christine Cragg of LPM (Marin), and Bernard Martin, (Sarasota), finished in the money with 4th place. Very good for a made up team whose players had never played together before, and on an unfamiliar terrain, too. Congratulations!

First place (Triples) was taken by a Florida team, Juan Garcia, Gilles Canesse, and Juan's daughter, Rachel Diaz.
