If you are looking to learn Mah Jongg in a zen-like location, you might want to sign up for Toby Salk’s newest offering: Mah Jongg at the fabulous RANCHO LA PUERTA (located in Tecate, Baja California, Mexico). Toby is going to be teaching a class for beginners at the ranch and will also offer Mah Jongg play for all levels of players. The class will be held August 20 to August 27, 2016 and when you make a reservation at the ranch, mention the words, “Mah Jongg.” I suspect the class will be filled with very interesting people, including Gail Friedlander, Toby’s childhood friend of 50 years, Mah Jongg collector, and teacher extraordinaire. Hey, Toby – I like that book you are holding!!!
