John Strauch became a Grand Life Master in Phoenix
John Strauch took a break from his very busy hiking schedule to become Grand Life Master at the Phoenix Nationals in December, 2013. In addition to the 10,000 masterpoint and various colored point requirements, the Grand Life Master rank requires a national title. John had achieved this title with local Evan Bailey in the Open Pairs (now the Silodor Pairs) at the Spring 1995 NABC, also approriately in Phoenix. After a week of play at the 2013 NABC in Phoenix, John was still 1.4 MPs short. John and his wife Bette decided to stay an extra half day and picked up 2.24 MPs in the Friday morning side game, more than enough to reach the Grand Life Master title. Congratulations John!
