The Longest Day at UNIT 174 Clubs

Four clubs held bridge games for the longest day in our unit:  Bridge Club of Houston in Spring, Clear Lake Bridge Club, Star DBC in Bryan and Westside Bridge Academy.  The UNIT 174 board appreciates the effort of our clubs in support of this worthy national ACBL event.
All of the clubs raised a lot of money.


Westside did not take pictures. To see the pictures submitted by the other clubs go to Unit Pages and click on Photo Gallery.
