ACBL Unit 433 is tucked into the absolute northwest
corner of the continental USA. The unit covers Whatcom County, Washington.
A relatively small unit, it is best known for the friendly, welcoming
attitude of its members, as well as for what is regarded as the
best sectional tournament in this part of the country.
The affairs of the unit are managed by a 10 member
board of directors serving two year terms with half elected each
year. Meetings are held in conjunction with the unit championship
games. The Annual Meeting is held on the second Monday in November
Peace Arch Sectional happens every February, and is legendary for
the hospitality which includes a feast of home made cookies and
an outstanding meal between sessions of the Sunday Swiss event.

! BAM ! BAM ! Is it a bird, is it a plane,
is it Superman? No, it's the "Bridge Chicks!"
(click on picture for enlargement)
to an on-going mentoring class offered by Jay Brandt and Gay Parrish
(standing left) of Unit 433 in Bellingham, Washington, these newcomers
met in their class and enjoyed it so much they formed a duplicate
bridge group (the "Bridge Chicks") where they could
continue to practice. Their confidence has grown thanks to teachers
with a sense of humor and comments like "don't be afraid to
ask a question, there is no stupid question", and "it's
okay to go down". Armed with this information and lots
of spirit, they have become almost dangerous! When they decided
to purchase Red Hat Shirts and show up at their local tournament
wearing them for fun, they were such a hit that the other ladies
who have been in the unit for many years, have decided to purchase
them too. And their bridge skills are coming along quite well.
Often you will hear one of the newcomer partnerships placing somewhere
in the B and A levels, and the best thing about that is the whole
room breaking out with cheers and clapping. So who said bridge
players have to be serious all the time? Try a smile and a
sense of humor at your next game, because we guarantee …..
it's contagious !
