Information for Unit 559 Clubs


Monday Night Game
The game on Monday evening is changing... Up to now, it has been a non-Lifemaster game for players with fewer than 1000 masterpoints, and it is still limited to 1000 master points, but now Lifemasters can also play.  This should increase the attendance and make a more interesting game.  The game is flighted, so your score will only be compared to the others playing at your level.

Monday Hand Records
Marie is aware of the problem...   The hand records often do not match the hands that were played!  She doesn't know where the problem is, but has promised to find out.  Give her some time, please.

Arcadia Bridge Center Results
The ACBL has a now policy for clubs... They now require that the director send them the game results, which they will post so that players can see the scores and also get credited for their masterpoint awards, which becomes mandatory after the end of this month.  If the scores are not posted, you won't receive your awards.  The Bridge Center is now posting the results, and the link is above.

Do you need gold points?  There's a regional down in Orange county at the end of the month.  You can find more information with the link below...

Long Beach Unit game
Want some good competition and the chance to win extra masterpoints?   This Sunday you can go down to the Long Beach Bridge Club for both.
