Participants at the Course
We are on the way back from Antalya Turkey where I organized the 11th European Bridge League Tournament Directors' Course. In bridge, the Tournament Director's job, in addition to activities concerened with organizing competitions, is also the judge during the course of the competition. There were 64 participants  from 27 different countries, and 17 participants received accreditation as International Bridge Directors (=judges)

Doreen and I with Vered on her enlistment many years ago

Now that granddaughter Lior Ron is doing her compulsory army service, (see for example her enlistment), I thought she might like to see her mother when she was in the army.

Son Maayan Segoli returned this morning from a six day trek with 2 friends in the Simien Mountains of Ethiopia. He reports a wonderful experience, including seeing the unique Gelada monkey ("bleeding heart monkey")  found only in Ethiopia.
Click here for some more pictures.

In 2004 Doreen went on a 4 day trek in the Simien Mountains - you can read her report and pictures here.

We'll wait to see more pictures on his site in due time. In the meantime you can enjoy the amazing pictures of his familt trip to Madagascar ( in Hebrew or in English.)
