Information for Unit 559 Clubs


You will learn more bridge from losing to good players than you will from winning against poor players.

This website is open XXIV / VII    
That's 11000 / 111 in binary or 30 / 7 in octal    

Gold Points - Again
For the entire week, starting on Monday, the ACBL is sponsoring Stardust Week at BridgeBase Online.  The master point awards are twice as much as a club game, and 25% are gold.  The other 75% are black.
No need to pre-register, either.
    There's more information at the ACBL website... ACBL

On again, off again, gone again, - Finigan.
Because of the new State mandate regarding masks in places where a lot of people meet, our unit games will also require them until they tell us we don't have to.  Darn.

we are all getting old, but some of us are getting older... Happy birthday, my friends! Marty, Diana and Marie!

Pasadena-San Gabriel Unit 559
Our unit is one of nine in District 23 and we are sanctioned by the American Contract Bridge League.   We have an elected board of 12 members that meets monthly and is responsible for unit games and the annual John Waken sectional.  There are two clubs in our unit - The San Marino Bridge Club and the Arcadia Bridge Center.

Unit Game
Our next unit game is on Sunday, August 8, and you will definitely need a reservation to play.  Unfortunately, masks are still required, and you will need proof of vaccination.  Bring it with you, or send Roy Wilson a photo of your vaccination card.   A file will be kept on this web site.
We are no longer playing in San Marino, either.  The game will be at the Arcadia Bridge Center, and game time is 12:30.
    If you want to request a N/S or you need a partner, call Miriam Harrington:     626 232-0558
    Send a photo of your vaccination card to Roy Wilson:
