Pat Abbey
This is very sad news, and I can't confirm it, but Harold Knowles called me and said that Pat had a heart attack while driving.  He said it caused a terrible auto accident and she died before she arrived at the hospital.  She was a friend to all of us and a wonderful asset to the game of bridge.  Pat was 76 years old.

Bridge Lessons
The Arcadia Bridge Center will present a six-week series of lessons for people with no experience in the game.  If you know someone who would like to learn tell them to call the Bridge center - 626 445-3797
Lessons start on Tuesday, September 16, at 11:30 AM and repeat on Thursday, the 18th, at 7:30 PM.

North American Pairs
Next Wednesday evening the San Marino game will be a NAP qualifying game.  Extra masterpoints that are half-red and half-black, and a chance to represent the district at the Nationals.

Non-Life Master Sectional
For all of you non-life masters, there is a sectional in Long Beach this weekend... here's a chance to get those much needed silver points.  There's a link below with the schedule.

More Donors
I am really happy to report that more players have donated to our Bridgemates fund and their names have been added to our donor list.  If you would like to have your name added also, please contact Miriam Harrington.
