The Fall Sectional Tournament is scheduled for October 18 - 20. The normal location of Blanchette Park in St. Charles will host the event. There are multiple events for all levels of players each day. To view the full schedule click on this LINK .

If you don't have a partner, you can talk to Phyllis Seigel at 314-810-6487 to see if she can arrange one for you. You can drop an email to her at unit143pship@gmail.com . She has been very successful in finding good partners for those requesting one.

Bridge Haven will be closed during the tournament in support of the tournament. Remember to make all of your games and slams, and to have a good time.

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.
