Diane & Joe Warren Diane and Joe are working SO HARD to make Wichita bridge enjoyable. Diane even passed out personal thank-you notes to the people who donated $ for the sectional and bought the caddys shirts that said, "Who's your caddy?" They leave no stone unturned and are so cognizant of the importance of thanking people.
The least we can do is say, "Thank you so very much, Diane and Joe!"
give great hospitality!

Diane and Joe Diane and Joe started playing bridge in August of 1972 vacationing in upper Michigan on a fishing trip with friends from Ohio. After the first day the weather turned very chilly and they decided that learning to play bridge by a cozy fire might just beat freezing outside fishing.
Fast forward to 2009, a year after Diane's retirement, Diane and Peggy Newell played at Orchard Park and after one session were "advised" to take bridge lessons. Diane and Peggy took lessons from Alan Phares, meeting some wonderful women who decided to form Bridge Divas club one week after lesson ended. This group of ladies have a wonderful time together, encouraging and helping each other to become better players. Oh, by the way, Diane pronounced that if Joe wanted to play with Diane he had to learn the new rules; which proved to be considerably more difficult than he ever imagined. Diane got her life masters about one month before Joe, with each getting their needed fractional points in a Steve Drumhiller game. In their own words, "Becoming a life master is a wonderful bridge player milestone but it seems like we are both just leaning the game."
Congratulations, Diane and Joe!
become Life Masters!
