Welcome to ACBL Unit 146
New Unit Board

The Unit Board of Directors elected by you at the Membership meeting met for the first time Wednesday night.  After electing officers the board rearranged committees and selected chairmen.    The new board and committee chairs are posted under the Unit Board & Business tab on the left side of this page.  Please contact the chair of any committee you are interested in and desire to help.  Or you can contact me.  I guarantee we always need someone to do something.  The new board is very energized and wants to make our unit better for everyone.  Join us.

Our next board meeting will be January 9th at the Bridge Center at 5:00.  I have no idea what the agenda will be but we will post it before the meeting.

New Charts - What is legal and what is not. 

Effective the first day of the Hawaii National the Convention Charts will be replaced – that’s November 22nd.  The three current charts will be replaced by four new ones. The new charts have two charts for non-life master games; one for open games; and one for more advanced contests.

People like me find all this very interesting, but for you normal people, don’t worry.  Everything that was legal today in our club games will be legal afterwards.  For those of you who decide to try something new, just ask your director whether it is legal in that game.  If you play in non-life master games and open games, there may be different answers.

Your convention cards say what you play and must reflect what you play.  The Convention Charts tell you what it is legal for you to play at any particular level.  It is your choice what you play of the legal options.

Also, do not adjust the thermostats. Ask the director. Finally, ensure the refrigerator door is fully closed and do not use the warming oven without the director's permission.

Announcing a News and Notes Page

enlightenedTo replace the Echo, we've added a "News and Notes" Tab. Here we will post recent news and other info about the Unit and the Bridge Center. If you have something to contribute send it to and we'll add it (as appropriate) to the "Notes" section. enlightened

Automatic External Defibrillator

The Bridge Center has an AED or Automatic External Defibrillator. This life-saving device is located on the wall just inside the main entrance.    We also have a teaching kit including a video and instructions.  This kit is on the bottom shelf of the bookcase.  I will be happy to demonstrate the AED and other aspects of resuscitation.  When you see me at the Bridge Center, just ask or you can e-mail.
