Kudos to All!

 



Sadly, we note the passing of William "Bill" Hartin, who died peacefully in his sleep on May 24th at age 85.  Bill was well-known and well-loved by all who knew him in our bridge community.  He was born in Boston, Massachusetts, and married his wife, Beverly, 52 years ago.  Together they raised four sons and a daughter in La Cañada Flintridge, California, before moving full-time to Rancho Mirage in 2001 after his long and successful career as a pharmaceutical executive.  A devoted husband and father, Bill’s greatest joy was his family. He had an affinity to inspire younger family members (or those around him) and tell unforgettable stories.  Bill loved any reason to celebrate.  A party with Bill was always legendary and not to be missed. His zest for adventure encouraged all generations to live life to the fullest. His laughter and fun-loving spirit will be deeply missed by all who knew him.  He is survived by Beverly, their five children and three grandchildren, and his brother, Bob.  Commemorations can be made to the Coachella Valley Bridge Foundation in Palm Desert, or to the Tunnel to Towers Foundation (T2T).

Unit Games

2020 Unit Games

Unit Games in Clubs - The unit has designated certain days as "Unit Games in Clubs" in any eligible participating club. All players play for upgraded points while competing at the venue and club of their choice. The Unit pays the difference in ACBL sanction fees for these games as part of our "give back to our members" program. The Unit does not provide lunch for a game identified as "Unit Games In Clubs," but does provide a cake or other dessert at each participating club. 

Unit-Wide Games in Clubs - There is one Unit-Wide Game in Clubs in 2020, in which players compete with all players in all participating clubs (similar to STaC games, but just within our Unit).  The Unit pays the ACBL sanction fees for these games as part of our "give back to our members" program. The Unit does not provide lunch, but does provide a cake or other dessert at each participating club. 

Annual Unit Events and Games - There are three Annual Unit Events, which include a lunch provided by the Unit:  the Annual Meeting and Unit Game in January, the Annual Awards Program and Unit Game in April, and the Annual Holiday Party and Unit Game in December.
