Our Annual Awards day is so much fun that you won’t want to miss it! We

honor the accomplishments of our new Life Masters, as well as, the winners

of all Unit 122 Ace of Clubs and Mini-McKenney Awards. You will enjoy two

sessions of bridge, plus a delicious dinner, for only $15.00. If you wish, you

may play in one of the two sessions, instead of both, but by all means come

enjoy the day with all of your bridge friends.

Starting at 1:30 pm, followed by dinner, then a second session

immediately afterwards, you can sign up at the Bridge Center and pay

$15/person, or mail your check, made out to C.O.B.A. (Central Ohio Bridge

Association), to us at 2030 Crown Plaza Drive, Columbus, OH 43235.

Both games are sanctioned as Unit Championships and will award extra

masterpoints. You will receive the Annual Awards booklet, completed by

Jim Bachelder, with awards and player points listed. Our Unit 122 Officers

thank you for attending this day, planned for our members: President, Bob

Jiobu, Vice President, Janelle Courtright, Secretary, Melissa Warheit and

Treasurer, David Maul


                                   D i s t r i c t-W i d e S T a C


Set aside Monday, April 9 through Sunday, April 15 for a Spring

Sectional Tournament at the Columbus Bridge Center. Players will

compete district-wide in the week’s ALL-SILVER-POINT AWARDS.

Identical hands will be played throughout participating clubs in District 11.

Plan your games and let us know if you need help finding a partner.

Considerate and Conscientious?

Be One of Those Players!

It is very hard for the directors to completely change the

movement, when we do NOT know that you’re arriving late. We love

you for arriving 10 minutes before game time OR simply giving us a

call if you’ll be late. Also, we appreciate your leaving your table area

as it existed when you started your game. Please return cups &

glasses to the counter, place floor debris in the trash, push chairs

into the tables. Thank you for helping us keep the club nice!
