We’ll be happy to run additional afternoon games if there’s enough interest. ..........

Leaving the American Legion Post

Friday, May 29, was bittersweet. After more than 50 years in the Westwood American Legion Post (anybody remember when Joe Vaas started holding games there?), we moved a truckload of furniture, equipment, and supplies into storage. (We left because the Post refused to honor the rent-abatement provisions in our lease.)

This is a new beginning for our club! We will open in a better facility as soon as it is safe and reasonable to do so.

Of course, none of us know when it will be “safe and reasonable.” This fall might be possible—next year seems more likely—but we’re starting to plan right now. We’d love to hear your thoughts. Please tell us all about your dream bridge club!

Meanwhile, “see” you online!

Many thanks to our packing and cleaning crew, Tom Caragliano, Andrew Hanes, Stephanie Homolko, Christine Riviere-Homolko, Jan Schwaner, and Nathalie Tabor.
