A big thanks to the Mid Atlantic Bridge Conference for augmenting our fundraising efforts to benefit Alzheimer’s research.

The Reidelbach Trophy Game for life master and non-life master teams scheduled for Saturday, September 27, has been postponed. Check this site in a few weeks to see the new date for this game.
The game that is normally held at the Westwood Club will be held at the Bridge Center on Thursday, August 7. The game starts at 10:30, and you should bring lunch.
This game is for both men and women. It encourages less experienced players playing together or advanced players playing with less experienced players. The goal is to involve more players in the bridge experience.
The location of this game may or may not be permanently changed to the Bridge Center. Paul will talk about that decision with the participants on Thursday.
On Thursday August 14, the Bridge Center will be starting a new daytime game for players 0-1500 points. Each player may have up to 1500 points. All games are stratified. The game will be directed by Paul Anderson. Starting time is 11:00, and you should bring lunch.
The 1st and 4th Thursdays are sponsored by Paul Anderson’s Westwood Club, so that game is moving to the Bridge Center. The 2nd, 3rd, and 5th Thursdays (when there is one) will be sponsored by the Bridge Center.
The first Monday game that was played at the Westwood Club (Engineer’s Club) will be played at the Bridge Center, effective Monday, August 4, 2014.
Remember that this is a ladies only invitational game, no gentlemen are permitted to play in this game.
We will break for lunch, but no lunch is furnished at the Bridge Center.

Each unit sends 10 teams (A, B, C, D, E) to compete. Richmond was in last place after the third round, but managed to squeak a win at the end.
Congratulations to all who participated and brought the trophy back to Richmond!
