Welcome to the website of ACBL Unit 114.  Our 1,160 member unit consists of the state of Georgia except Coastal Georgia and Metro Atlanta, both of which are separate units.

♥MAY is for MENTORING♥
♥MAY is for MENTORING♥

We are going to offer another exciting MAY is for MENTORING Program in Unit 114 this year. The program will run the entire month of May 2017. Throughout May 2017, mentoring Life Masters will play free with their NLM partner. Clubs will be reimbursed by Unit 114 for all free plays. The program will follow the same rules as last year’s program.

 

Highlights of the program follow:

♠ Mentoring consists of a Life Master playing with a Non-Life Master several times over the month of May 2017. The Mentor is expected to provide an enjoyable playing experience with learning tips and to answer a few questions and review a few hands immediately after the game, if the Non-Life Master is receptive.

 Your unit area’s Mentoring Coordinator will be contacting the clubs soon to discuss the program and will then email them the detailed instructions and the forms needed. We hope to have the forms to the clubs by April 1st. 

 Club managers will announce and publicize the Mentoring Program, in their club(s), encourage your players to participate, and help set up partnerships. Using posters and sign up sheets are highly encouraged. Club managers may want to appoint a Mentoring Chair to help coordinate and setup partnerships.

The mentor will play free and Unit 114 will reimburse you for Mentor entry fees. Please record the free plays on a Mentoring Log, a form that we will supply.   

 

This program is only for a Life Master playing with a Non-Life Master. Existing established partnerships are not eligible. There are no restrictions on how many times or at how may clubs that either may participate. Most clubs have found that this program helps and encourages new players, and builds more interest and passion in the game. We strongly urge you to participate. Direct any questions about mentoring to the Unit Mentoring Coordinator (David Newcomer <davidn640@yahoo.com>) or to your club/area Mentoring Coordinator.
