Palm Springs had another huge crowd, with bridge players parking at the edges of the resort and taking the golf shuttle to the playing area. We had 3930.5 tables, an increase of 54.5 tables over 2015! Kudos to the hotel staff as there were golf carts everywhere, ready to transport players.
For ten straight years, since the move to the Westin Mission Hills Resort & Spa, the regional has bettered the 3000 table mark, and the final total of 3930.5 placed Palm Springs a solid second overall in the country behind only Gatlinburg, Tennessee. We had a record 801 tables for one day!
Congratulations to David Lodge, Ken Monzingo, and Nancy Erickson, co-chairman, and to the Unit 533 staff and volunteers. Kudos also to Scott Magged for bringing in vendors for last minute holiday shoppers, Director-in-charge-Gary Zeiger & his staff, Speakers & I/N Program Chair-Marjorie Michelin & her wonderful speakers, Caddie Master-Murphy Zeiger & her staff, and all the other numerous volunteers! Volunteers were everywhere on the resort, ready to answer any questions player have.
