Regional wrap-up

The final table count isn’t in, but it’s in the neighborhood of 1150 tables, which is in the neighborhood of 64% of the 2019 table count. Earlier regionals were running at 45%, so this is very good news for Denver and for bridge as a whole. If you came out to play, thank you for your support and we’ll see you next year.

Jan Janitschke Award for 2021

The Jan Janitschke Award, presented to a member of Unit 361 for outstanding work in bridge education or mentoring, went to Elly Larson, owner of Denver Metro Bridge Studio. Elly has provided space and support for classes and beginner games, run online beginner games, and supported bridge in general. Congratulations Elly!

Elly Larson receives award from Julie Clark, Unit 361 President. Bonnie Smith, married to Jan for 35 years, looks on.

Email ‘phishing’

Please know that Unit 361 Board Members will NEVER use their position to solicit money or charitable contributions, or send an email asking you to spend money on their behalf.
