Our unit games are held twice a month on Sundays,
and both games are held at the Pasadena Bridge Club






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

Stray Words of Wisdom
Infant Blackwood?

If you and your partner agree on a major suit, there's an
old convention called
Baby Blackwood where a 3NT call
is a low-level Blackwood.  Of course some players take
that even further and say that after agreement even a
2NT rebid can be used to ask for aces.  The key to the
agreement is a bid and raise of a major suit - trump.
    Roy Wilson - Diamond Life Master

UNIT GAME THIS SUNDAY
All of our unit games will be held at the Pasadena Bridge Club from now on.
Game time is 12:30.
    Please call Mirian for a reservation:     626 232-0558



Shhh, it's a SECRET!
As you know the Arcadia Bridge Center will be closing its doors on April 27th.  But on this coming Saturday, April 20th, there will be a final Farewell Party.  If you would like to help with a bit of food, which is optional, please contact me if you want to contribute to the Pot Luck.
See you at the Arcadia Bridge Center - Saturday, April 20 - Game time is 1:00 ! ! !

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, our
Holiday party and the annual John Waken sectional.






How to Find Our virtual Club on the BBO Website
Our unit members can play in a virtual club game set up by Mojo and Paula...
When you log on, you are at the Home screen.  Click on Competitive and then click on All Tournaments.
There's a Search Box at the top, on the right.  Simply type in a few letters or numbers that will help identify
what you are looking for: 23 is sufficient for District 23, and 559 is enough for Unit 559.
You can use either the abbreviated Pasa or 559 for our virtual club.
