Lone Star Regional ResultsResults of the WBA 99r Tournament

Unit Directory

The ACBL updated their Privacy Policy and web page in November of 2014 to allow each Member to separately mark as confidential their address, phone number, and email address. 

They then sent a notice to all clubs and units emphasizing that they must have permission from each Member before distributing or posting a Member directory. Unit 174 does not currently have any way for Members to grant or deny that permission, hence there will be no new directory printed and distributed during the upcoming Lone Star Regional.  It also means that the directory on the Unit web site must be shut down until such a method is implemented.  

The Unit board has chosen to give Members the opportunity to “OPT OUT” of being included in the paper and on-line directories at the hospitality desk during the upcoming Lone Star Regional, at all Unit 174 sectionals, or electronically via the Unit web site. All new members will be given that opportunity when they join. 

Once that method has been implemented, the Unit can then proceed with printing a new directory and reactivate the directory on the Unit web site.

Please be sure to take a minute to stop by the Hospitality Desk if you want your information excluded from the Unit directory.  

Westside Bridge Academy

The Houston Bridge Studio has been purchased by Jennifer and Jimmy Breihan and Katherine and Bert Onstott and renamed to be the Westside Bridge Academy. Westside ran their first game today. 

Their website is at www.WestsideBridgeAcademy.com.  Check it out!

District 16 NAP

The district level qualfying was held January 3rd and 4th in Austin, and several Unit 174 pairs did well.

It was nearly a clean sweep in Flight B, with half the qualifying pairs coming from our unit: David Crooks and Bill Kiehnhoff were first and Daniel Jackson and Bill McCarty were second!

And in Flight C Joan and Keith Ritter came in third. 

Congratulations and good luck in New Orleans!

    • On Thursday evening there is now a Barometer game at 7:00! If you've never played a Barometer game, it's where every pair plays the same boards every round, so you get to see your matchpoint score and where you stand at the end of each round.  It's great fun - come on out and give it a try.  We will make sure the game is over by 10:15.
