UNIT 433
148 Members

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 each year.

The 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.

We have three weekly duplicate games. See above right for weekly results and information.

A new sanctioned Club now holds ACBL games the first Sunday of each month at 1 p.m. at the Port Townsend Sr. Center. The Quimper Club manager is John McClure, jmcclure@hypergrove.com .

We look forward to seeing you at one of our club games, or at the Peace Arch Sectional usually found in February.

    NEWS

    BAM !  BAM !  BAM !   Is it a bird, is it a plane, is it Superman?  No, it's the "Bridge Chicks!"  
    (click on picture for enlargement)

    Thanks 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 !
