The Web-Site is changing. I will attempt to put all tournament announcements into “Tournament Schedule”, all announcements regarding our members under Member’ s Milestones, etc. In the past, most of the announcements have been added as “Posts” and some were difficult to find. Note that the “Bill Wheeler” winners are under “Races.” I hope this helps.
As you are aware funds are being collected to help finance the 2020 NABC, which District 1 is hosting in Montréal. Each Unit within the District is contributing levies each year based on table counts at all District 1 Regional Tournaments.
To help raise funds, Unit 151 has recently approved a special motion wherein Unit 151 has committed to remit all profits from its upcoming April 2014 STAC to the NABC fund.
I am seeking your support in encouraging your local clubs in your unit to participate in the upcoming Unit 151 STAC planned for the week of April 28th to May 4th. Register online through the ACBL website.
District 1 President
Registration for The Longest Day is in full swing, and as a unit/district official, we want you to get involved! We are depending on you to use your communication channels to encourage your clubs and members to participate and register for The Longest Day.
We’ve partnered with the Alzheimer’s Association and Alzheimer Society of Canada because research has found that keeping the brain active – by engaging in activities like playing bridge – may lower the risk of cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s.
When clubs register, they receive a toolkit with the following:
- Team Captain Guide complete with fundraising, operations and event information.
- Fliers to advertise the event to the community
- Publicity tools to maximize exposure
We want to help you help clubs make their events successful. The first step though is for you to register yourself! As they say, lead by example. We hope you’ll take a few minutes to find a team close to you or start a team.
This is a chance to share the game of bridge with others and most importantly – do something you love for a good cause. The Longest Day Information Calls are being conducted by the Alzheimer’s Association. Join us for the next call to learn more about how you can participate!
