John Waken Tournament
Our annual John Waken sectional is coming soon... it's the weekend of August 2 - 4.  Sadly, though, this will be the last time that La Salle High School will be the venue.  Our board is looking for a new home.


Don't you just hate it when you find a pair arguing about a bid or play when you get to their table?
I do, especially when I didn't get there in time to know what the discussion is about,
so I don't know who's side to take.




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.

No Unit game in July -- The John Waken Sectional will be in early August, from the 2nd to the 4th.
    Jan Wickersham will be in charge of the Partnership Desk - 626 487-4014
    The Tournament Managers are Mary Falvey and Michael Rodriguez.
