New Partnership Request System
Our recent membership survey discovered that many unit members would play more often if finding a partner were easier.
We have added a new partnership request system to our Partnership Desk to match those looking for partners. Now all we need is for those of you looking for partners or open to playing with new partners to identify yourselves.
An Update From Your Board
Thanks to all of you, we are having another very successful year, with attendance growing at our games, our first class education classes being well attended and receiving rave reviews, our beautiful Bridge Center continuing to be the envy of other clubs, and on top of all that, we are in excellent financial condition.
The purpose of this write-up is for your Board to let you know what has been happening in our Unit and what our many, dedicated volunteers have been doing to continue to provide all of us with enjoyable, challenging and high quality bridge in a beautiful environment.
