MEET TED MEYERS
Ted is the Tournament Chairman for the 2013 Tulsa Regional –July 8 through July 14,2013.
Ted,who is a gold life master,was introduced to duplicate bridge at the age of 16 in Pawling,New York in a game his parents directed. He has directed club games for 20 years in Tulsa,including the life master party with up to 40 tables. He is a past President and current Vice President of Unit 158. With a degree in mechanical engineering,he has worked as a manufacturing engineer on various projects,including making the Space Shuttle doors.
Since August of 2011 the bridge players at the Tulsa Club have enjoyed using the “Parity Mitchell Movement”,which he wrote. In this Movement,there are always just 26 boards in play. All N-S players are stationary and all E-W players follow their pairs guide cards. It is an easy movement to set up and can accommodate last minute changes.
Duplicate Bridge and Swing Dancing are Ted’s hobbies. He says there are a surprising number of similarities between the two. In Tulsa,they have a bridge studio and a swing dance clubhouse with similar facilities,both in back of a shopping center. He said they have used the same hotels for both large dance contests and bridge tournaments.
Ted is looking forward to seeing everyone at the Regional Tournament which is being held at a new tournament site –The Renaissance Hotel and Convention Center,6808 S 107th E Ave,Tulsa,OK. He invites you come and enjoy the tournament and the great hospitality.
