There will be 3 Club Championships this week at 2 different clubs.  Ambassador BC will host championships on Tuesday afternoon, September 25 and Wednesday evening, September 26, while Lorraine's Club will host their's on Thursday afternoon September 27.  All games will be at their usual times and come with extra masterpoints for pairs that do well.  Lorraine's championship will be a charity event as well, with all proceeds from the game going to Manitoba Cancer Care in memory of Marilyn Walder.  Marilyn was a woman who enjoyed her bridge and September 27 was Marilyn's birthday.

The ACBL has recently made an extensive revision to their laws that all directors should be aware of.  To that end, Unit 181 will host a review of these changes at Soul Sanctuary on Thursday evening, September 27 at 6:30 PM.  Anyone involved with directing games should consider attending so as to be up to date on the current changes.  Alexa Campbell will facilitate the evening which includes a handout summarizing these changes.  Please let her know that you will be attending at email This email address is being protected from spambots.
