Unit About Us

Unit 479, with about 130 members, is responsible for the promotion and advancement of bridge in the area. We work in cooperation with the ACBL and District 20 to support the programs and goals of the organization. District 20 publishes a newspaper, The Trumpet, which may be read online. It is published approximately four times a year. Copies are also delivered to EBC. The unit’s board of directors holds monthly meetings, which are held one hour prior to each unit game. Unit members are welcome to attend.

An annual Election Party is held the 2nd Sunday of February. Recently this event has been hosted at Shadow Hills Country Club and is a two-session event. Any member of the unit is eligible to run for election to the board.

The unit is also responsible for putting on the sectional tournament once a year. Typically this is held the first weekend in June.

District 20 holds regional tournaments throughout the year. The Emerald Empire Regional is held in July in Eugene in odd numbered years.

District 20 covers some of northern California; Vancouver, Washington; northwestern Nevada; and all of Oregon and Hawaii. District 20 is further divided into 28 units of which we are one.
