FALLBROOK – Fallbrook’s American Association of University Women’s Mahjong Tournament continues to entice many to its annual competition. Beginners and experts alike came together, Oct. 19, at the Fallbrook Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1924 to ply their skills and to try to out strategize their opponents. Amid the buzz of clacking tiles and the environment of friendly competition, Caryn Sutherland did just that and walked away with the $50 cash prize and the highest score.

The tournament is not just a social event; the funds raised will benefit the AAUW’s educational enhancement programs, including scholarships to Tech Trek camp. Selected girls attend a camp program at University of California San Diego each year that introduces them to professional women and encourages the pursuit of higher education and careers in fields such as science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

AAUW welcomes women to join the association who are committed to promoting the education of young girls and inspiring young women to take steps toward the education and career they might not ordinarily have considered or thought possible. For more information, visit
