Whirlwind Bridge just won ABTA Intermediate Book of the Year for our 'Cuebidding 1 - Controls'

Do you know a School Teacher? A Principal? One of the biggest challenges faced in the promotion of youth bridge is to educate our school administration and parents about the value that bridge can add to a child’s life. Please help promote youth bridge by sharing this information with those you know. More information is available on the Bridge Teachers for Youth and Atlanta Junior Bridge websites.

At the Callaway Gardens Winter Bridge Retreat we had a wonderful group of guests, a nice teaching venue and good weather. This all combined to make a great experience. We hope to see all of you soon!

My Whirlwind Bridge partner (Melissa Bernhardt) and I went to Lexington Va and presented a Learn Bridge In A Day? to the local community and the Washington and Lee University students - "Town & Gown". What a great time we had and what a wonderful group of young people!

The first day we were there the Lynchburg ABC news affiliate came by and did a story. Needless to say...they didn't pick the best person to showcase and a few of the quotes weren't exactly what I said....but any news about bridge is good news!

We had a wonderful time at the Social Duplicate Bridge Game. 196 players, over 20 excellent volunteers AND we made the home page of the ACBL website!
 

Atlanta Labor Day Regional Attracts Nearly 200 Social Bridge Players

Nearly two hundred social bridge players participated in a Social Duplicate Game during the Atlanta Labor Day Regional held August 30 at the Crowne Plaza Ravinia. The game was designed to provide a stress-free introduction to duplicate bridge and all the mechanics involved in playing for the first time.

Advertised on the grass roots level by local clubs, teachers, students and players, the response was 196 participants. Additionally, local players volunteered their time and sacrificed a day of bridge play in order to make the event a success. There was one helper for every two tables to step the social players through the mechanics of their first game including bidding box introduction, scoring, and help moving from table to table.

“The volunteers were critical in the success of the event because no participant felt nervous that they didn’t know what to do,” said Patty Tucker, organizer of the event. “In this game, the more experienced players were the odd-man-out instead!”

Tucker feels confident that the game was a success in attracting social players to the world of duplicate bridge and recruiting new members to the ACBL. Several participants joined the ACBL after the game and all were excited to have won their first masterpoints.

District 7 held a social duplicate game seven years ago in conjunction with the Atlanta Labor Day Regional and were successful in recruiting 78 new ACBL members. The district is eager to track the success of this year’s event. They plan to hold another social duplicate game before Atlanta hosts the NABC in August 2013 so they may draw even more players to the I/N games.
