President's Message
by John Sharpe - President, Calgary ACBL Unit 390

H

ello bridge players,

The next main event for ACBL Unit 390 is our Annual General Meeting that will be held at the Kerby Centre on Saturday, May 13th. There will be a light lunch at 11:00 a.m., meeting at 11:45 a.m. followed by an open pairs game. Cost is $5 including lunch and table money. Please register with Tracy Horan by e-mail at tracyhoran@shaw.ca.

The resignations of Brian Johns, Dorothy Mersereau and Marcel Claeys have left three board director positions to be filled for two-year terms: vice president, tournament coordinator and information officer. Many thanks to Brian, Dorothy and Marcel for their contributions to the running of the Unit. The position of vice president has been taken on by Carrie Stockman and Caroleigh Houghton has agreed to stand for the position of information officer.

That leaves the position of tournament coordinator, which is very important and has the responsibility for confirming venue availability for the four sectional tournaments per year, arranging sanctions, ensuring the supplies in the unit trailer are delivered to the venue, arranging for food services, caddies and the partnership desk. Fortunately, for the next two years the venue has been booked at the Clarion Hotel so that helps matters considerably. If you are interested in this position please contact me (john.sharpe@telus.net) or any board member.

The Spring Sectional was a success attracting a total of 270 tables compared with 265 in 2016. Congratulations to future masters President’s Award winner Richard Piette who earned a record 11.82 masterpoints.

It is with great sorrow that I report that David Swadron passed away Sunday, April 9th. He was the Unit 390 webmaster for many years until his illness forced him to retire. David and his wife Marilyn were awarded the Jack Murphy Memorial Trophy last year, in recognition of their lifetime service to the Calgary bridge community. He will be missed.

John Sharpe
