  • Ask the director about a new MVBA Directory (no calendar) and a list of MVBA’s and District 11’s Tournaments.

  • The Thursday Noon game has moved to Wednesday & now at 11 am! 

    • Our player numbers have been way down partly because of other games in the area. We know that some won’t be able to play on Wednesday, but we have to try something because we can’t help the Bridge Center survive with very low numbers. Please try to play if you can. Thanks, Georgia.
  • The next Sat Eve Goodtime Game is on July 27th and is a NAP Game

  • Dayton Sponsored On-line Game

    Bill Gottschall (937-974-2159) has gone back to directing only one game on Wednesday evening – the 0-1250 starting at 7:00 pm.  All players in in ACBL can still play in this game if they meet, or are less than, the game masterpoint limit.
