Our dear friend Donna out in San Luis Obispo has a fun new idea for her upcoming Mah Jongg tournament. She has filled a jar with various tiles and for $1 you can enter the contest to guess how many tiles are in the jar. The correct guess wins all the money!! Donna has an even bigger jar to use for her tournament in January. This is such a great idea to add to the fun of a tournament. Leave it to Donna to come up with new ideas! And, speaking of the San Luis Obispo area, we are sending good thoughts and prayers to Donna, Boots, and all the rest of our friends in the Central Coast area of California that the fires will soon be contained and they will have suffered no damage.
All of you living in or around Orange County in Southern California…the Merage Jewish Community Center of Orange County in Irvine will be holding another one of their very friendly Mah Jongg tournaments on June 2nd…and there are still seats available!
The tournament includes a lovely continental breakfast and a delicious catered lunch with prizes of gift certificates for amounts ranging from $50 all the way up to $100.
And for those of you who don’t yet play Mah Jongg or are thinking that you aren’t yet ready for tournament play, this event features a beginners table (contact Geri at 435-3400 x 303).
If you want to attend, contact:

I received this message and photo from Barbara, one of my oldest friends in California…with less than a month to go before the 2016 card arrives, she completed the big hand of FF 2015 2015 2015 – congratulations to her! How many of you were able to Mah Jongg with this hand…you still have a few weeks left before the new card arrives!
A major coup – I made this hand. I wanted to do it before the new card comes.
Wish I had been there!
