What Happens in Vegas…

This is my first trip to Las Vegas, and it’s been a whirlwind so far. There’s so much to do and see! I’m spending the week here for the annual American Bridge Teachers’ Association conference, where I spoke today about our new books at Master Point Press. What a great week with a fun bunch of people. Bridge teachers really are the best people. (Someday I hope to be one too!)

So far, highlights include…

Talking to Zia Mahmood in the pool.

Watching the Bellagio fountains each night from my hotel room. I could watch them all night! 

Fantastic choreography and different every time!

A fabulous lunch at Lago (thanks, Robert!).

Delicious tapas-style Italian restaurant at the Bellagio, with a view overlooking the fountains. Highly recommended!

Dinner at the Bellagio buffet, followed by the Cirque du Soleil show “O”. This was a fabulous evening arranged for us by Barbara Seagram.

Bridge teachers represent in the centre balcony!

But the best part of the week was all the inspiring presentations from bridge teachers and players, and many thought provoking discussions about the future and what we can all do to help to promote this game we love. 

Julian Laderman presenting on his favorite subject, bridge probability.

This morning we presented the ABTA MPP Teacher of the Year Award, but that deserves its own post. Stay tuned!
