I’ve been so blue all day about missing Gladys Grad’s Mah Jongg Madness tournament in Las Vegas but when I received this wonderful email from Donna in California, my spirits were lifted to the sky! Thank you so very much to Donna and friends!!!
There were 12 of us who played at Mussell Center today and I read your morning blog post to everyone. They were very sad for you so we took a “sad photo” showing our disappointment that you couldn’t get there and then a “happy photo” because we love your book, love playing and love your blog!
Feel free to use however!
This group is mostly the newer group and not the one with all of the “old timers” (about 26 people). We did appreciate the suggestions from all of the readers!
December 28th – MAH JONGG TOURNAMENT – Temple Beth-El, Bellmore, New York – I WILL BE THERE – I HOPE TO SEE YOU AT THIS TOURNAMENT! AND THIS INFORMATION FROM THE TOURNAMENT DIRECTORS: We host a very pleasant tournament in North Bellmore, NY. We are in central Nassau. For registration and further tournament information for Sunday, December 28th, please email Linda or Martha at firstname.lastname@example.org or on the website at www.onebamtwocrak.com. Hope to see you there!
Yet another tournament has been added on January 28th and also more information has been added to the December 28th tournament in North Bellmore. Read on…
Thanks to Donna in California, I have added a tournament being held February 3rd in San Luis Obispo. The list is now revised. But don’t hesitate to let me know if there are any other tournaments that you would like me to list.
I have put together a list of upcoming Mah Jongg tournaments but suspect that I might have missed a few. Please tell me if you know of other tournaments and I will post them. I am going to be at a few of these events so I hope to see you there!
And don’t forget that Linda Feinstein – Mah Jongg player and teacher exceptional! – holds a weekly meeting of the Manhattan Mah Jongg Club at Sarabeth’s Restaurant. Call 212.327.4620 (reservations required) if you are interested. All levels of player are welcome.
Read on for the tournament listings…
Much thanks to all of you for your responses to yesterday’s call for help. Mah Jongg people truly are the best people!
