Unit 360 Memorial Trophy 2018
Unit 360 Memorial Trophy 2018

The Memorial Unit Trophy is given to the players with the most points in Unit games in Flights A, B, and C. The Memorial Trophy (actually a plaque on the entrance wall) was first awarded in 1972 in memory of Elaine Suhrke, one of the club founders. In 2002 the trophy was rededicated in memory of all the Unit 360 bridge players who are no longer with us. (From Rick Olson's June 2010 Kibitzer article).

Gazette Telegraph Rotating Overall Sectional Points Winner 2017 Trophy

The Gazette Telegraph Rotating Overall Points Winner Trophy is awarded to the player in Unit 360 who won the most master points at our Sectionals. This trophy has been around since the mid-1960's. Dick Dutcher, a club director, wrote a weekly bridge column for the Gazette Telegraph and the paper presented the trophy to Unit 360 during that time. The Colorado Springs Gazette was last called the Gazette Telegraph in 1978.

Mini McKenney Masterpoint Awards 2018

The Mini McKenney Masterpoint Contests recognize the ACBL members who win the most points in their respective catagories. The races are named for former ACBL Chief William Mc Kenney.  A player is in a category based on his/her masterpoints at the beginning of the year.

William McKenney (1891-1950) gained fame as a bridge columnist, philanthropist and administrator. In 1927 he helped found American Auction Bridge League (ABL). He became chairman of its committee on laws and then executive secretary in 1928. He continued as secretary of both the ABL and the ACBL until 1948. Mc Kenney founded National Laws Commission in 1932 and chaired it 1935-48. Several times Mc Kenney contributed his privately earned income to the ABL and ACBL. In 1929 he founded Bridge Supplies, Inc., which sold trophies, scoring supplies and other merchandize; he donated this corporation to the ABL in 1936. He founded both the ABL and the ACBL charity programs. He devoted nearly all of his time to the bridge leagues. He won the ABL National Open Pairs in 1929.
