STaC Games
Silver points and larger awards!  The district holds Sectional Tournaments at Clubs several times a year, and the next one is on Monday, March 2nd.  Both the Monday afternoon and evening game will be participating.  The card fees are $10.00, and because the game is scored across the Los Angeles area, the awards are larger.  The Wednesday morning game is also a STaC game.

Which Hand?
Below are three hands, which you might consider for a weak two opening bid in hearts.  The top hand has nine points, while the second hand has only seven.  The last one has but three.  Now, I ask you, which hand would you prefer to open?


NOTE:
However, the ACBL, in its wisdom, will not allow you to open a weak two bid with fewer than four points, if you are in a game that using is the BASIC convention chart, but in other events, you can open the last hand, even though it has only three points. (Thanks, Joe!)






Pasadena-San Gabriel Unit 559
Our unit is one of nine in District 23 and we are sanctioned by the American Contract Bridge League.   We have an elected board of 12 members that meets monthly and is responsible for unit games and the annual John Waken sectional.  There are two clubs in our unit - The San Marino Bridge Club and the Arcadia Bridge Center.


Unit Game
Our next Unit game will be our Election Party, Sunday, March 1.
Every spring we elect six of the 12 members on our unit board at our election party, and we also present awards to our outstanding players.

We have a unit game generally on the first Sunday of each month.  The card fees are $10.00 and students may play free.  The game has three flights, A, B and C.  There is also a separate section for 499ers for thos players who prefer to play there.

The fee for seniors over the age of 90 is $5.00.  Gametime is 12:30 and lunch is available at 12:00.
    The location is the San Marino Bridge Club
