PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE

Happy New Year!!!

As that singer-songwriter, Bob Zimmerman, so famously wrote "the times they are a-changin". And so it is with Unit 549 for this new year. As I reported last month the rent for the Pavilion at Lake San Marcos has been raised to $500 per Saturday, which is beyond our means. We have been looking for a new place, but that has had its challenges. We needed to find a place that we can rent for under $200. We needed a place that can store our tables and equipment or has their own. We needed a place to accommodate a minimum  of 22 card tables with room to move around. We needed to find a place that has adequate parking and easy access. And we needed to get this done quickly.

The place we found that was the best fit for all of our criteria is the BCNC (Bridge Club of North County) facility. And best of all, most of you are already familiar with it. The Board met on January 14th and agreed that we would enter a contract with the BCNC for 2018 and that our first unit game will be there on Saturday, February 24. As in the past our unit games will be held on the fourth Saturday of each month with a couple of exceptions (usually May and November).

Unfortunately, this isn’t the end of our space challenges. We have plans to hold a Non-Life Master Sectional again this year and need to find a place. While we are covered for our Winter Sectional this year, we need to find a suitable place for next year. And we have a commitment from Audrey Grant to do her very popular and successful 2 day seminar again next year which we will need a space for. The good news is we still have a little time to solve these space issues.

Just in case you run into Tomomi Nomura, wish him a Happy Birthday. If my memory hasn't failed me, he will be 97 on or about January 27th.
