President's Message
by Delores Hedley - President, Calgary ACBL Unit 390

It seems it was just the other day that I assumed the role of President and wrote my first message. With a gentle reminder the other evening that a new President’s message was due, I can hardly believe that nine months have passed.  The Idiom “time flies when you are having fun” is so very true”.  My computer Thesaurus defines fun as amusing, pleasurable, entertaining and enjoyable, and I can honestly say that serving on the Unit Board fits each one of these definitions.

Recognition is due to each and every Board and Associate Board Member I have worked with. They are committed and dedicated to maintaining the structure set up by previous Boards and have established new policies and procedures for future Boards.  I do feel compelled to extend a personal thank you to Associate Board Member Dave Swadron.  We all know him as our Webmaster but he was my personal guru.  I can only say that Dave (and wife Marilyn) “had my back”.  The majority of us are familiar with and appreciate our website – say thank you to Dave now and then.

My next personal thank you is to Associate Board Members Steve Lawrence and Barbara Webster. As Asset Managers, they are the reason you enjoy the condition of the boards, the new cards, and the clean and complete bidding boxes at each tournament.  Maybe thank them once in a while as well.

The upcoming March Sectional will be the last time we will see Doris Lange and Barb Bayer behind the kitchen counter.  In addition to all the administrative work and advertising in preparing for each Sectional, these two wonderful ladies catered to us for the past two years, giving up bridge for the entire weekend to make sure that we were taken care of when it came to coffee, tea, soft drinks and those wonderful homemade treats.  They have set a standard above and beyond expectations and their departure from the Board is an incredible loss.  Whatever will we do without them?

Working on the Board of Directors is an insight into the ACBL, recognition of the history of our Unit, and the ability to implement change to the benefit of our members.  With the upcoming Annual General Meeting (June 13 - click HERE for complete information), I urge members to attend, stand for election and voice your opinions.

And finally, I can’t help but put a plug in about the upcoming Calgary Regional (July 13 – 19th). While the tournament committee is working hard to organize this tournament, remember that you, as members of our bridge community, are the hosts.  Ladies be aware you will be called on to bake cookies, squares and slices.  Maybe your company could donate a gift basket for a prize?  We need some help in the kitchen – can you work one session? And - most of all - support your tournament.
