Welcome to the home of Unit 549, covering San Diego's North County Inland. From this home page, you'll find links to our Clubs (where we play), results (how you did), upcoming Tournaments (what we're looking forward to), the Unit 549 newsletter (what's up with who and when), and the latest on your Unit 549 Board (what they're doing to help make your bridge experience better all the time) - and more. We welcome your visit here and to any of the area Clubs in Unit 549!
Wow, that was fantastic. The Unit had our Winter Sectional in January and the turn out challenged our capacity at the Lake San Marcos Conference Center on both days. In my short memory with the Unit, this was by far the best turn out we have had. We offered an incentive to our non life masters of a $5 card fee and they responded and the open event was the most competitive in my memory. Thanks to all of you for making this a success.
Looking to add to your bridge experiences? Make a short trip up to our Ramona club for the friendliest, most laid back game of bridge in San Diego County. Mary Ann has organized a bunch of bridge players into a group of dedicated volunteers who have made regularly sanctioned bridge games in Ramona a reality. They have a really nice facility and the players to match it so I encourage you to give it a try.They will love to see you. Our website has a list of days and times for the club's games.
We just celebrated the beginning of the Chinese New Year and this year is the year of the Rooster. Well, for Unit 549 and 531 this is the year of the Non Life Master. After the great turn out we had last year for our NLM Sectional we've decided to do two this year. The first will be April 8th. at the Lake San Marcos Pavilion and the second some time this summer on a date to be determined. So for all you NLMers this will be your opportunity for some tournament experience against your peers without having to travel very far.
Our next unit games are February 18, March 25 and April 22 and we hope to see you there. We will be recognizing our Mini-McKenney and Ace of Clubs winners at our March unit game so don't miss it. The unit games are always a day of good bridge, good food, good people at a really nice facility.
