Round Up Sectional - Apology from the Unit Board: The Unit 430 Board apologizes for the condition of the playing site used for the Roundup Sectional this past weekend. When the site was selected more than a year ago, there was a shortage of available properties for the weekend which had been previously chosen for the tournament. But the Unit Board could have done a better job of checking out the site and its shortcomings before making the final site decision.

Partly in response to the playing site a letter from a unit member was circulated with suggestions for improving the administration of bridge in our area, including playing site selection. Here's the letter, and the response from our Unit President, Peter Morse.

The Unit Board very much appreciates this kind of feedback. Please feel free to write to the Unit Board at any time with suggestions and questions about what's going on.
