We miss all of you. We suspect none of us will ever again take for granted the opportunity to get together to play bridge.
There are some folks to acknowledge.
When this all started, we were approached by several individuals offering help financially. We felt the best way to handle this was for the Unit to get involved. The Board decided to set up a separate checking account. President John Wolf, acting on behalf of the Board, sent out a notice to all the members of the Unit.
The response has been impressive indeed. Due to the phenomenal generosity of you, our members, we are able to continue the lease on our building, at least for now. Losing the building could mean we lose Bridge, and none of us wants to see that happen. So thanks to all the folks who have stepped up.
The landlord, Steven Yett, needs to be acknowledged for his willingness to lower the rent substantially during this period of shutdown. We are grateful.
Ellen McCumsey deserves a very special acknowledgment. She has taken it upon herself to get us all up to speed on how to play online on BBO. Her patience is the stuff of legend. Thanks, Ellen.
Betsy has done a great job keeping the BBO user name list up to date.
And Doug Berg has been working on updating the EBC website. It was long overdue. It will be more functional and less expensive. Thanks, Doug.
We and the board will keep you updated when we know more.
Here is another great video from Mac. He is playing in another club and they are playing a Big Club system so may not be of interest to all. We are certainly hoping to have more of these in the future as well as the possibility for some post-mortem sessions after some of our games. We are working on it. Stay tuned.
I found clicking on Mac’s photo was easiest way to start the video.
