It was Youth Day at the Nebraska Regional Aug. 4, 2011. Four of my students made it there for the day, all 4 winning in the morning pairs competition. Then Warren Buffet and Bill Gates came to visit and talk with them during lunch. Bill was nice enough to pose with us. (Warren was swamped signing autographs!) Two of these students went on to win in the afternoon pairs game as well! Their grandmother and an aunt brought them up to play for the day but the really fun part was that these ladies went to play in the Novice Pairs Game (their very first try at duplicate!) that afternoon while the kids were busy playing.
Youth Day at the NE Regional this year will be Thursday Aug. 2, 2012. Who knows who you'll get to meet?
