PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE

A few weeks ago I was in Casper, Wyoming and had the opportunity to witness and experience the solar eclipse. It was an amazing and rare experience and that got me to thinking about how lucky I was to have that opportunity. Apparently this is my lucky year because I'm going to have another opportunity to experience something rare and quite amazing.

There are 326 million people living in the United States and the US Census Bureau says that about 72,000 of us are age 100 or older. As a percentage that is .02%. Of those 72,000 centenarians only about 15,000 of them are men which is .005% of the US population. A number that small has to put 100 year old men in that rare category. In a few weeks we in Unit 549 are going to have the opportunity for one of those rare and amazing opportunities. Our friend, play every day, I'm right don't argue with me bridge mate, Al Nadel, will be celebrating his 100th birthday (October 8th.). The North County Bridge Club will be celebrating Al's birthday at their regularly scheduled game on October 9th. Don't miss the opportunity to come and join Al in this celebration.

When I think about Al or Tomomi Nomura or Betty Brekke or all those other bridge players who are doing so well at their age, it makes me think of that old Satchel Paige quote and question; "How old would you be if you didn't know how old you were?" 

A few housekeeping things - We will be having a election to fill board seats at our annual member meeting (unit game) on November 18th. Please contact the Nominating Committee Chairperson, Dorothea Williams, if you are interested in joining the board. The annual Lungevity charity game will be on October 8th at the NCBC. The Unit will be paying for the table fees and drinks again this year. Please find a partner and join us for this very worthy event. The October unit game will be on the 28th.
