Most startling innovation at this tournament is the debut of Unit 116’s new tables. They have bright white tops made out of some sort of heavy-duty plastic with the word “Lifetime” stamped into it. The best thing about them is that they’re big. No more cramping to work around the bidding boxes. Most players seem to like them.
Odd little extra feature – a little non-skid rubber mat under every bidding box to keep it from sliding on the slippery plastic. Odd thought that crosses my mind – aren’t white tables going to look like a white linen suit in a rugby game after a while? Odd observation that comes from the mouth of none other than Bev Cohen – it’s hard to see the white cards on the white table tops.
