POOCHES ‘HANG 20’ FOR HUMANE SOCIETY!
PHOTOS: GORDON RADFORD
The Beach at Pepper Beach Park was filled with peeps and pooches
June 26, a fantastic turn-out, everyone agreed, for the inaugural St. Lucie
Surf Dog Classic – “Surf Dogs: Hang 20” – to benefit the St. Lucie County
Humane Society. Presenting sponsor was Dyer Subaru.
About 20 dogs were there to compete in two categories: Tandem,
when the human paddles the board to shore and the dog rides in front,
standing on the board all the way to shore. (No jumping in too soon.);
and Solo, in which the dog rides the surf board all by him or herself, once
his or her human gets the board in position. By 8:30 a.m. the surfers were
signing in and hitting the beach, and by 9 the competition was under-
way. The surf was more glassy than gnarly, but picked up a bit later in the
Surfing to first place in the Solo category was Willie Vought, a yellow
lab in only his second time out. Second place went to surfing veteran
and frequent trophy winner Waldo Leverette, a Tibetan Terrier. Although
there were a lot of excited dogs, there were no serious canine alterca-
tions, and the beach was left as pristine post-event as it had been before.
Judges were longtime surfers and local businessmen Doug Davis of Rich-
ard K. Davis Construction; Gary Roberts of Summer Crush Winery; and
Spunky of Spunky’s Surf Shop. – SAMANTHA ROLFING BAITA

SUIT-PREFERENCE SIGNALS THE SUIT QJ4
By Phillip Alder - Bridge Columnist A983
Amy Lowell, a poet who died in 1925, said, “In science, read by preference the newest KQJ
works. In literature, read the oldest. The classics are always modern.”
A 10 2
That sounds reasonable. At the bridge table, we have a preference that comes up in this
deal. First, though, look at the East hand. What should he bid after South opens one WEST EAST
spade, West passes, and North responds three no-trump to show 4-3-3-3 distribution, 852
three spades and 15-17 high-card points? Then, where does the preference occur? K76542 3
North’s three-no-trump response is an unusual agreement these days, but was textbook 764 —
50 years ago. (Nowadays, North would probably respond two clubs, which would leave
East in a quandary. He might make a three-diamond weak jump overcall.) A 10 9 7 6 2
Over three no-trump, East should intervene with four no-trump, showing at least 5-5 in KJ9853
the minors. South would probably double because his hand does not suggest a slam in
spades. West will run to five clubs, and North will double. SOUTH
Against five clubs doubled, North might lead the ace and another club, which would A K 10 9 7 6
result in down one. Better here would be the club-two lead. If declarer misguesses, he
goes down two (or three if South shifts to a low spade at trick two). Q J 10
However, suppose North rebids five spades. Then West will lead his singleton diamond. 854
East wins with the ace and returns the diamond 10, his highest-remaining diamond, as
a suit-preference signal for the higher-ranking of the other two side suits (hearts and Q
clubs). West ruffs and gives his partner a heart ruff to defeat the contract.
