2020 Hawaii Regional — Mahalo!

The Hawaii Contract Bridge Units Association wants to thank all those who attended this past
Regional. Our next Regional is scheduled for January 25-31 in 2021, once again here at the
Prince Waikiki. The Prince is a wonderful host and we appreciate the partnership we have
developed with the hotel in putting on the Regional.

We have reserved a room block again, this time with a few more of the lower price rooms.
Once we have refined the schedule it will be posted and will include hotel contact information
and rates.

We will be making changes to the 2021 schedule. We tried some new things this year, some of
which worked well and some of which did not, so hearing from participants will provide valuable
guidance to us for next year. We owe great appreciation to our Head Director, Matt Koltnow,
and all the other directors for adjusting to the schedule thrown at them.

Many of our players donate their time making some of the goodies for players’ enjoyment. A
special thanks is owed to Constance Holland for her work on Hospitality, to Lily Johannessen for
once again ably handling the Partnership desk; to Arun Savara for his nonstop work on the
Bulletin; to Larry Denneau and Muriel Stitt for pulling the luau together, organizing the naming
of games, and scheduling daily speakers; Keith Kalway for providing baked hospitality goods; to
Randi Conway for arranging discounts at nearby restaurants; to Mary Philips for managing
finances for the Regional; and our caddies Alan Masuda, Brayden Morse, Ann Endicott and
Maddie Morse, who hustled for you all week.

Again, mahalo for joining us for the 69th Hawaii Regional. Next year will be our 70th consecutive Regional! We hope you will join us once again.

Aloha,
Glenn Mason
Honolulu Regional Tournament Chair
