The All-Western
NiteClub

Starting Aug 1st 2023, any player  can play in our Monday - Thursday 6:30PM PT "All Western NiteClub", VACB904227, as long as they meet the master point criteria for that game.

The All-Western NiteClub, a cooperative effort sponsored by five neighboring districts (D17/D19/D21/D22/D23) is a virtual club for players with less than 200 points. We now offer two games nightly (Monday through Thursday), one for 99ers and one for 199ers.   Refer to the updated flyer for more information.

 

A highly qualified team of directors/instructors run these games and the ensuing postmortems, and we are very appreciative of their dedication to the program. 

 

Mondays: Lynn Yokel, directing and Liz Erling teaching

Tuesdays: Lynn Yokel directing and Wirt Gilliam teaching

Wednesdays: Ellis Feigenbaum directing and Paul Darin teaching

Thursdays: Will Watson, directing and teaching

  D22 Launches an

  Education Grant

  Program

Consistent with its mission of promoting duplicate bridge and specifically programs of education for its membership, District 22 has launched an education grant program, encouraging grant proposals from member units and clubs that focus on bridge education and membership building.

 

A selection process is then applied, and if accepted, a monetary stipend is issued to the submitting entity. Upon competition of the “project”, we will encourage sharing of their accomplishments to promote best practices within the district.

DORMANT PLAYER OUTREACH

Current ACBL members in D22 who have not played bridge since before Covid will be receiving a free play in the mail.  This coupon may be redeemed for a free entry at any club game in district 22.  You can find games in your area here.

1000 free plays were sent in an effort to encourage a return to face-to-face bridge. We hope that this program will encourage dormant players to return to the club and respark the mental and social stimulation associated with this amazing game.
