Anyone who attended the recent LA Regional in Woodland Hills may have noticed the large print-outs on the wall outside the playing area. Further inspection would have revealed that these contained lots of information related to the history of District 23, some of it going back to 1940. This history is a work in progress and is in need of a favor from some unknown kind bridge player in LA. We need certain issues of the District 23 Bridge News that are, so far, hard to find. The very first issue of the Bridge News was in June 1964. If anyone knows of the existence of any issues from #1 up through December of 1972, we would like to borrow them for a short time as part of our history research.
If you know of anyone who can help on this matter,
please contact Mike Marcucci. 818 903-2471.
Thanks from the ALACBU Board.
Long Beach Unit 557 held a “Learn Bridge in a Day?” seminar organized by unit VP Robert Preece and conducted by Patty Tucker of Atlanta. The event was held Sunday January 26th and lasted 6 hours. ~130 attendees were assisted by 30 or so volunteers to learn bridge. Patty did a great job and ~30 attendees signed up for one of several beginning bridge classes offered at the Long Beach Bridge Center.
