NEXT WEEK: IT’S A REALLLLLY BIG WEEK IN WNC UNIT 171!!!!!

Robert Todd Free Mini-workshop Tuesday, October 4

Robert Todd is offering a mini-workshop at the Asheville Bridge Room on Tuesday at 11:00 am. The program is

free to all Unit 171 members. Consider finding a team and stay to play in the ABR’s monthly Swiss Team Game that

starts at 12:30. Pre-register your team with director, Nick Frost (dehra@aol.com). Free Pizza and salad will be

served between lecture and game time for those who have registered to play in the afternoon Swiss team game.

Robert Todd Two Day Workshop, Wednesday – Thursday, October 5 - 6

A limited number of seats are still available for the Robert Todd Workshop at the Crown Plaza Resort. Over half of

the people registered are coming from out of town to take advantage of this opportunity. Partnerships that are on the

same wavelength are winning bridge players! This workshop will help you get there. Robert Todd is fantastic, and

we are thrilled to have him. The cost is $120.00 for both days, $75.00 for one day and includes a lunch buffet both

days and an evening game on Wednesday.

Special Unit Championship Game Wednesday Evening, October 5

Even if you are not registered for the Robert Todd Workshop, you are invited to join us for a special Unit

Championship game at the Crown Plaza Resort on Wednesday at 6:00pm. How fun! – a warm up game before the

tournament begins!!! This specially scheduled game pays 63.6% sectional-rated black points. The game is FREE

for participants in the Robert Todd Workshop, only $5 for everybody else. This is going to be unique, fun, festive

evening of bridge!

And then…..The Asheville Fall Spectacular Sectional Tournament, October 7 - 9

Is it on your calendar? It’s soon! Friday, October 7 – Sunday, October 9, Crowne Plaza Resort. After years of

‘bouncing around’ (it’s tough to get affordable room in WNC’s Queen City), Asheville has found a home at the

Crowne Plaza. We’re counting on YOU to help make this one of the Unit’s super successful (and fun) tournaments.

There are a very few rooms still available at the special tournament rate. Peep at the leaves, play some bridge,

meander through one of the best small cities in the US. We’re looking for you.

See you next week!!!!
