2008 mahjong champ claims trophy

FALLBROOK — Priscilla White was recently named the 2008 Champion of the Mahjong Dragons of Fallbrook and was presented with the club’s special trophy.

The original dragon plaque was donated by the estate of the late Dorothy Francis and crafted into a piece worth displaying by the fine woodworking of Warren Dawson.

The ancient Chinese tile game of mahjong is all the rage in Fallbrook with many different groups usually meeting weekly to test their skill and luck.

The Mahjong Dragons of Fallbrook have played together for almost 20 years, having learned the game from the late Oleta Stevens, who played it in Hawaii before moving to Fallbrook.

Last year the club had the trophy made and began giving it to the player with the highest average score for the year. The winner must display the prize in her home all year and then give it up, dusted and polished, to the next champion.
