UNIT 174 Board of Directors Club Connection Program

Nelson Brown, Gary Hercules, Beverley Cheatham, Nancy Strohmer, and Chuck Ensorr

The Board continued our program to connect with our Unit members and traveled to Clear Lake.  The Clear Lake Duplicate Bridge Club is one of 3 full service clubs in UNIT 174 and has games everyday. They recently expanded into more space.   They also have an active teaching program with ACBL Teacher of Year Dave Glandorf.

Beverley Cheatham, Nancy and Hans Strohmer, Chuck Ensor and Gary Hercules played bridge in the Clear Lake Duplicate Bridge club on Friday May 1.  All had fun and good bridge.

Our next outing will be to Sugar Land on Tuesday June 2.  Hope to see you there.
