Robert Reierson, Unit 356, Green Valley, AZ demonstrates that age is just a number when it comes to reaching milestones. After all, Bob just became a life master at 95 years young.
Introduced to bridge while returning home from the Philippines in July of 1945, Bob played infrequently until Doris Kuzmak opened Saguaro Duplicate Bridge Club, Green Valley, AZ in 2007.
Last fall, Bob needed a mere 2.50 silver MPs to become a life master. His son, Ron, came down from Kansas City to play with Bob during the Tucson Fall Sectional. Ron has about 30 MPs and says he just plays for fun, but fun turned into serious business when they picked up 2.25 silver. Bob earned the remaining .25 silver with Denis Nathan also from Green Valley while playing in the Tucson Winter Sectional, January 2020. He had achieved life master status.
