What is Alaska?


In case you missed Monday’s game, Pidge’s interview that day was about how she got her name: Pidge’s mother asked her local bridge-playing friends for naming advice, all of whom wanted Pidge named after them. So, Pidge’s mother took the first initial of everyone’s name and turned into an acronym for her name!

Results will go up on the main page late afternoon, with full stats early evening. They will be seen in the comments section at the bottom of the main page.


Here, of course, is Alaska’s flag:


The Alaska state website has the full lyrics, and sheet music, to the state song.
