Newsletter--NAP and Unit Games in November

Monday, October 29, 2018 18:07

The Unit NAP Qualifier will be held at 12:00 noon on Saturday, November 3 at CCSC (Carson Senior Center).  Anyone who qualified at any NAP game at any club (local and Reno, e.g.) and is a paid-up ACBL member is eligible to play, but you can play in only one Unit Qualifier (can’t play here if you played in Reno, or vice versa).  Because we had so many club qualifiers, almost everyone qualified at some point—check the list at the clubs (or call Nick or Paul Jorgensen) if you aren’t sure.  The cost is $6.  Unit qualifiers can go on to compete at the District 21 game in early 2019 if they wish.  Even if you don’t want to play at the next level, I encourage you to come and play because you can earn extra points.


The Unit Game will be held on Saturday, November 17, at 12:00 noon at  CCSC.  If you come to either or both games, please feel free to bring a snack to share.  You will need to use the west (dining room) door to get in.


There will also be a Unit Board Meeting at 11:00 am on November 3. If you have anything to put on the agenda, please let Leona know by November 1.  Major agenda items are Board approval of the revised bylaws and finalizing the slate of nominees for the Board.  The election will be held from November 15 to December 1; ballots will be distributed by email, with paper ballots available at the club games. Election results will be announced at the Annual Membership Meeting on December 8; the new bylaws will also be ratified at that time.


Our Annual Membership Meeting (11:15 am) and Unit Game (12:00 noon) will be held on December 8 at DCC&SC, with the Christmas Dinner Party to be held immediately following  the game at Julio’s (fine dining) Restaurant nearby. A sign-up sheet (with menu and cost) will be available soon. Space is limited to 40 attendees.  Reservations must be paid by December 1st.
