Masks Optional but NOT Mandatory

 

Effective August 23, 2021, all participants at the Colorado Springs Bridge Center are strongly encouraged to wear facial coverings while in the Bridge Center.  If you opt not to wear a facial covering and, if your opponents are uncomfortable with your option and ask you to wear a facial covering, masks are available at the director's desk.    All other previously announced Unit 360 COVID-19 safety protocols, reviewed below, will remain in effect:

 

MINIMUM ACBL UNIT 360 COVID-19 PROTOCOLS

 

NOTE:  Above all else, if you are feeling ill, DO NOT come to the Bridge Center.  Stay home!

 

1.  All participants must have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19; OR be exempt from vaccination for medical reasons.  All participants who have not been vaccinated for medical reasons must wear a properly fitting facial mask, covering both mouth and nose, at all times while in the Bridge Center.  In addition, all participants must wear a properly fitting facial covering any time a Club Owner and/or Director otherwise requires it.

2.  All participants agree to practice sound personal hygiene, including, but not limited to, frequent washing of hands and use of hand sanitizer.

3.  Participants may bring in and consume non-communal food and beverages.  Coffee may be brewed, served and consumed in the Bridge Center, but may only be served in disposable containers.

4.  Finally, all participants must abide by any additional rules and restrictions as may be required by Club Owners and/or Directors.

 

Also, effective August 23, 2021, all who want to participate in activities at the Bridge Center who have not previously signed a “Certification of Vaccination Status” form will be allowed to enter the Bridge Center if they present proof of COVID-19 vaccination by showing their “COVID Vaccination Record Card” to a Bridge Center official as well as furnishing current contact information.  This will be a “one-time” requirement.

We look forward to seeing you for face-to-face (F2F) play at the Bridge Center!  Thank you in advance for your co-operation.

The Election Committee Wants You!

 

Preparations for the November election of the 2022 Unit 360 Board of Directors are in full swing.  If you are interested in pursuing a challenging, meaningful and rewarding way to serve our community of Bridge Club Family members, please consider running for any of the four seats that will be on the ballot.  If you know anyone who may want to toss their hat in the ring, please communicate that information to any member of the Election Committee.  Those members are:  Howard Donaldson, hodon46@msn.com(719) 594-4184; John Dukellis, JohnDukellis@comcast.net, (719) 418-2574; and Phoebe Lostroh, plostroh@gmail.com, (719) 473-5053.  We need to receive the information about potential nominees not later than September 1, 2021.

This election is very important to Unit 360 because we are faced with unprecedented challenges and we need to continue building on the great teamwork that has consistently marked the efforts of the Board of Directors, presently and in the past. This will include, but not be limited to, continuing the process of emerging from the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown and fully integrating members who live in Pueblo, Rocky Ford, Buena Vista and other southeastern Colorado cities into Unit 360.  We will also need to continue expanding the robust programs of reaching out and conducting more bridge lessons and sessions in order to make the goal of a bigger, better, stronger Unit 360 a reality.  To do this, we will need selfless members who are willing to generously dedicate their time and talents toward maintaining and improving the well-deserved level of excellence for which Unit 360 has historically been noted.
