If you are starting to get tired of the NMJL’s 2016 card, and can hardly wait for the 2017 card to be delivered some time at the end of March or beginning of April, here’s some good news to tide you over…The Next Generation League’s Alternative Mah Jongg Card for 2017 has arrived!screen-shot-2016-11-11-at-10-10-37-pmscreen-shot-2016-11-11-at-10-05-21-pmscreen-shot-2016-11-11-at-10-08-44-pm


Yesterday was a special day – Judy S arrived at LaGuardia around 10am and headed right over to chez moi. From the moment she walked in until she left, we never stopped talking! Although we only met in person for the first time in July at the Destination Mah Jongg Tournament, it is as if we have been friends forever. Judy is such a thoughtful and giving person – she walked in loaded with fabulous gifts for me. And I love them all – a magnetic clip for my refrigerator…img_1763Mah Jongg coasters – I LOVE these and I know they will get a lot of use!img_1764A purse-sized measuring tape – perfect for using when you are out and about and need to measure tiles or tables or whatever! And, in case you haven’t figured it out, Judy is one of the two CEOs of Dragons on the Green Mah Jongg (Bonnie Wise is her  partner in the business) – the company that gives all of those wonderful tournaments in the greater Tampa area. BTW, if you live around Tampa, Judy and Bonnie are also great Mah Jongg teachers. Send me a message if you are interested in taking lessons from them and I will send you their contact information. img_1766And a Mah Jongg fabric case to hold my NMJL card – what great gifts!!! I can’t wait until everyone sees my card in this case!img_1767After talking away for a couple of hours, we decided it was time for lunch and headed over to the local neighborhood hangout, The Beach Cafe, for a great hamburger. img_1761Afterward we headed back to my apartment for hours and hours of Siamese Mah Jongg. All in all, the perfect day!img_1762BTW, I must admit that Judy beat the pants off of me today – she is such a great MJ player!


Destination Mah Jongg had a tournament in Ocala, Florida and it was a huge success! Fern wrote: Destination Mah Jongg – we had a hoot. The tournament couldn’t have been more fun with really nice ladies, large prizes, Golden Tickets and lot of extras. We had several new players take the plunge and totally enjoyed themselves, “when is the next one, lol?” Please join us at our next Destination tournamentwww.Destinationmahjongg.com🀄🃏👭👫
