UNIT 143 Spring Sectional

Bridge Haven will be closed on May 18-19-20, 2018 in support of the Spring Sectional Tournament. Now is the time to get out to Bridge Haven for those practice rounds to implement new partnerships, new conventions and just have fun playing bridge.

The Spring Sectional is again being held at Blanchette Park, 1900 W. Randolph, St. Charles, MO. The dates of the tournament are Friday, May 18 through Sunday, May 20. There are games for everyone. The official schedule is available on the Unit 143 website or through this link: Sectional Schedule .

The Unit has done an excellent job of arranging guest speakers to cover many aspects of our wonderful game. The speakers are available to all levels of players. The speakers are scheduled for Friday at 12:45 and 6:15, and then on Saturday at 12:45.

If you are a novice with less than 5 MasterPoints, you can play for free in the Intermediate/Novice (I/N) games throughout the tournament.

If you need a partner for any of these events, please contact Linda Siebert at (314) 810-6487 or drop an email to partnership at Linda does an excellent job of arranging partnerships provided that you give here time. The earlier you can notifier Linda, the easier it is for her to get you a partner that you will enjoy. Waiting until the last minute can cause you to be left out.

Have a wonderful time, find all your games and slams and try not to go down more than one trick. Sometime “down one” is good bridge. Have tons of fun.

Have a great time playing at the sectional, and best wishes from Barbara, Chuck and the Bridge Haven staff


Bridge Haven's 9th Annual BackStoppers Charity Annual Auction

September 16, 2018

Starting time 1:00pm, Location St. Louis Bridge Center

In eight years, Bridge Haven’s charity game to benefit BackStoppers has raised over $65,000. This year the game will be held at the St. Louis Bridge Center in order to accommodate the increased number of Pros who wish to donate their time for this worthy cause.

The format remains the same. Pros, i.e. players with 2,000+ ACBL Master Points, agree to be auctioned off to the highest bidder, who then becomes their partner for the September 16th game. The dollar amount of the final bid for each Pro is then donated to BackStoppers. All the Pros will be listed on the website as soon as the list is finalized.

If you would like to participate as a Pro, remember a Pro has 2000 or more ACBL Master Points, please notify Chuck Starovasnik or Barbara Reid. You can email them at or they can be reached by phone at (Chuck - 618-530-4300, Barbara - 314-374-6027, or home - 314-822-9454). Additionally you can contact Mike Arnheim at 314-583-1745. Mike will again be the director for this game.

The bidding process is as follows: a bidding poster will be placed on the wall at both the St. Louis Bridge Center and at Bridge Haven listing the names of all the Pros. You must contact Chuck Starovasik or Barbara Reid via email at, or call either Chuch at 618-530-4300 or Barbara at 314-374-6027. Their home number is 314-822-8454. We will also keep the website updated with bids until the start of the regional tournament. Anyone can bid on any Pro. Bidding starts August 15, 2018. They will update the bid amounts daily at both locations and only Barbara or Chuck can update a bid. Bidding will continue at the Regional and end promptly at 10am August 19, 2018.

We wish to thank all of the Pros and players for volunteering which allows us to raise these funds for BackStoppers

Charity Game Every Friday at 10:30 am

We had a request from a group of players to have a Friday AM game. After much discussion Chuck agreed to have a Charity game every Friday am. ACBL allows more points for charity games. The cost is an extra dollar that goes to the charity. Our charity is Backstoppers. If you are looking for ACBL master points this is a good way to earn MP. On Friday 9/29, first place earned 2.04 ACBL MP. IF you have questions feel free to call, Chuck at 618-530-4300 or Barbara at 314-374-2760.
