Two Recent Challenges but only one win.
Our unit recently participated in two local challenges: the Salem Challenge, and the Civil War.  We won the Salem Challenge but few details are available.  Sorry. :(

We lost our annual Civil War Challenge and many details are available but since the pain is too great, none will be forthcoming.

OK, just kidding.  We will point out the spectacular results in the C-bracket by the team of Maureen Gosda, Young Lauw, and Eric & Allison Walkinshaw who won all four of their matches, thus garnering the overall win in their section (as well as getting their names engraved on the trophy).  Congrats to them all!

Friday evening (Oct 28)  and Sunday evening games in Corvallis on cancelled due to Newport Sectional.

Halloween Party in Albany, Oct 31!  Costumes optional (but fun!).

Wednesday 6:30 evening games in Albany permanently cancelled.

299er Tourney coming up Nov 5-6!
Check the flyer for details!

Fall Class Schedule

Upcoming Events

Hello BridgeMates! 
Educational Opportunities galore!


With many folks away at the Seaside Regional tournament this week, we have two game cancellations.  The Wednesday morning non-life master game at 10 am in Albany will NOT be held on September 28th.  In addition, the Sunday night express pairs game at 6:30 pm in Corvallis will NOT be held on October 2nd.  If you were planning to play Wednesday morning for a final practice before heading to Seaside for the weekend, you can join us Tuesday evening or Thursday day instead!

ALL other games (Monday day in Albany, Monday night in Corvallis, Tuesday day in Corvallis, Tuesday night in Corvallis, Wednesday day in Corvallis, Thursday day in Albany, Friday morning in Corvallis, and Friday evening in Corvallis) will be held as usual.

Good luck to everyone headed to the tournament this week!  We'd love to hear how you are doing, so don't forget to snap a picture of your pair or team in the winners' circle and send it to us (you can reply to this message).  That way, we can all congratulate our victorious fellow Albany-Corvallis players!  Best of luck!
