THE POWER OF WOMEN WHO DO…

“The Power of Women Who Do”…that’s the motto of Hadassah and I am so very honored and proud to be a guest speaker at their Westchester, New York Mah Jongg event on Friday, September 9th – I hope you will be able to join me!Screen Shot 2016-07-01 at 8.43.26 PMScreen Shot 2016-07-01 at 8.43.52 PMScreen Shot 2016-07-01 at 8.56.00 PMScreen Shot 2016-07-01 at 8.56.41 PM

STAY STRONG AND MAHJ ON TO DESTINATION MAH JONGG!

You might remember back to last spring when I wrote about the three wonderful women who formed the breast cancer charity, Stay Strong and Mahj On (SSAMO). Fast forward to late summer when I learned all about the qualifying tournaments leading up to the Mah Jongg World Championship at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino, all brought about by Destination Mah Jongg.

Well, much to my heart’s delight, the two organizations are talking with one another and it looks like we are going to see SSAMO raise awareness and funds for various breast cancer foundations at the Destination Mah Jongg tournaments. 

There is a big tournament coming up in Westchester, NY on December 5th and I do hope that all of you in the greater tri-state area will be able to attend. Alexis Miller from SSAMO will be there to tell you all about her wonderful organization and Fern and Sheryl from Destination Mah Jongg will be there to make sure you have the best Mah Jongg tournament ever! Here’s the information and I hope to see you on December 5th!

MAH JONGG DOCTORS!

Yesterday I received a message from a Mah Jongg player who was kind enough to introduce me to her blog, The Mah Jongg Doctors.

The Mah Jongg Doctors are two avid Mah Jongg players – Susan and Barbara – who live in Westchester County.

Susan wrote:

“We love the game and try to find ways to spread the love of Mah Jongg to others.
We play in tournaments as often as we can and are willing to travel for Mah Jongg.
We took a transatlantic cruise this spring to Spain that included a Mah Jongg tournament!

We write about game strategies, answer questions asked, and tell anecdotes about the game.”

Their most recent posting is about all of the beautiful and varied sets they saw at a tournament in NJ. You can see many of these sets on their blog: http://www.mahjonggdrs.blogspot.com.  

Susan said – and I agree! – “So much fun to see the variety of sets that come to a tournament. And…fun to play with them as well.”

Check out this great blog written by Susan and Barbara and enjoy it as much as I am enjoying it… as well as this picture from their blog – this set is calling my name!!!
