Working in conjunction with the Unit 131 board, we will once again be offering a student section of bridge players at the Spring Sectional Tournament on April 24. This special section will begin play at noon and play 12 boards. This is for students in high school or younger with less than 5 masterpoints. Winners will be awarded masterpoints and the Unit is providing a trophy to the top winners as well. In addition, Kathy Rolfe is providing a $50 scholarship to the top winners through the Eugene J. Rolfe Educational Fund administered through the Truman Heartland Community Foundation. Unit 131 is also underwriting the cost of busing the students from the Lee's Summit, MO school district to the playing site at the Firefighters Hall at 6320 Manchester Ave., Kansas City, MO 64133. Any student who is a member of ACBL will be allowed to play in that session for free! The cost of play is being underwritten by Unit 131 as well. If a student has not become a member, the cost will be $6. As it only costs $5 for a one year student membership, this is a chance to try out ACBL and play free.
If you are a former student of Kathy's and would like to play in this tournament call or e-mail to sign up and/or get more information. If you don't have a partner in mind, we will try to find a partner for you.
