After book marking you may want to set this website as a favorite .  When you get that done, there will be an icon on the browser home page you can click to go to and  open the websiite. Bridgewebs, our internet host,  has an app for mobile devices but  I 'm not good with smart phones, Try Tom T.   

I have a lot  of new features   planned to introduce  but it will rely on you  using your email as  the primary communication tool.  I am going to spend a lot of time repairngs our email addressses and will ask for your patience and  cooperation in confirming our  communication links. 

I tried last month but had a response from only 10 % of our members. We've got to get that up to 60% to be effective and i'm looking to get 85% +   It will take some  time to get there  so I need to ask  fpr your patience and cooperation. I found several impediments to sending and receiving communications which will soon be fixed.  Some are at my end and one or two  are at your end. Lets try working together and see what we can accomplish.   Your Webmaster - Jack Evans   

♠         Regional  Planning      ♣

The Baton Rouge Bridge Center as hdq. of ACBL Unit182 will Host a ACBL Regional Tournament Jan 7-13 2019. The next planning  meeting will be on Oct 8 at 11:00 AM  in the Bridge Center. If you are willing to get involved please come and join the committee heads as we prepare for this  massive undertaking. Tthere are lots of opportunities before during and after the tournament to contribute.  We will  need players who can volunteer to play with visitors - for partnership, prepare facilities for the events -. gophers to go for things. Maybe photographers to document things  ,  and  doers to fix things before, and after, people with computers and word processors would have many available projects they could contribute to including making signs, banners, instruction sheets, and promothional info preparation.  So if you're readty to help-, we're ready for you.. 

The Director in Charge will be Kevin Perkins and the Tournament Chair is Scott Thurston.  He has appointed Committee Chairs to work on developing infrastructure  to support the ACBL managed competition.. We hope over 500  competitors will  come to the events and occupy a total event table count of about 800 over the whole tourmament.  It  will be held at the Belle Hotel and Casino Downtown.  This is be a massive job. and will be done mostly with volunteers   If you would be willng to help, now, up to, or during the Tournament please let Scott or a Chair know.  Your help will be appreciated.

 ♠       PICTURE LIBRARY   ♦   ♣ 

if you have thoughts on  collecting  pictures for a membership album - please share them with Jack Evans  It will require pictures of about 200 regulars to show new members the   faces of  our core players.   Being able to place a name with a face  makes it much easier to say "Hi First name"   And it is way better than mumbling  --  Hi " MmGmmLmmmu"t and will help build  comraderie much faster.  With your cooperation and a lotta luck- We can pull it off within this year

Please get your picture taken or email me one you have. There  are about 40 in the website picture library now.  If you meet a new guest -welcome them and get someone to take   their picture . - maybe they will become a member..

Thoughts
I heard an expert say there are less than 10 truly gifted bridge players on earth that were capable of teaching  the game perfectly.  
Isn't it  just awesome how often we all get one as our partner !!!
