Fort Worth Bridge Studio Information


At Arlington's recent tournament, they received a bad check for a significant amount. Therefore, we wanted to let everyone know that the District's policy on bad checks is the same as the ACBL's policy. If the person does not make the check good we have a disciplinary hearing. If convicted, the person is subject to suspension. A suspended person may not play in sanctioned ACBL games. If somehow they manage to get into a game, they are subject to further suspension and do not receive their points nor get their money back. If the check is big enough, they are also subject to civil action, but that is not the ACBL's concern.

Kudos to SUE ROWE and PAT SEARS for the great job they are doing with studio decorations.  We would, however, ask that no one take any of the decorations as they are reused.

Proof copies of the UNIT DIRECTORY are available at Denton, Arlington, and FW studios until April 5 for corrections before final printing.

BILLY LEEPER is a retired electrical engineer from Lockheed Martin. He has become our official electrician at the FW Bridge Studio, changing out lights, ballasts, fuses, etc. He also changes out the filters in the ceiling. Covering another job as well, he maintains the ice maker by thawing, cleaning and caring for the filter. Since these projects donít take up enough of his time, he goes to Samís once or twice a week to purchase all the Studio supplies from papers goods and cleaning supplies to cream and sugar. Billy has been a huge contributor of time and expertise not to mention money saver.
