The opening of the White Stallion Bridge Club was discussed. The sanction
for this club has been applied for and it will hold games on Sunday’s
for $15.00 which would include lunch.
Connie feels that any club should be able to host a unit game. It was decided
to table this discussion until it is sanctioned.
The Unit Party Dec. 9th at Adobe will have members bring food. Connie
felt we should have the main entrée catered.
Steve Reynolds has arranged to have the two session unit game held
at Pima Community College on July 30, 2008. We will have the food
catered, and make sure that the chairs are comfortable also.
